-- The U.S. teen skating sensation, Polina Edmunds is headed to Sochi, Russia. Edmonds will join U.S. champion Gracie Gold and veteran Ashley Wagner, who finished fourth this weekend at the national championships in Boston.

Third-place finisher Mirai Nagasu was left off the team in favor of Wagner, a two-time national champion.

Edmunds, 15, finished second behind Gold in her first senior national competition. Edmunds had the most technically difficult free program among the Americans. Her 4-minute 20-second routine has eight triple jumps, including two separate triple-triple combinations that can pile up points.
