SOCHI SCENE: Gracie's egg

BY foxsports • February 22, 2014

SOCHI, Russia -- Aside from her bronze medal for the team competition, Gracie Gold is taking away another special prize from the Sochi Games.

She proudly has in her possession a Faberge egg pin, a hot item at the Olympics.

The U.S. champion figure skater who finished fourth in the individual event said Saturday during a Visa function at USA House that she traded several pins during her stay in Sochi. But the only one that was untouchable was the hard-to-get Faberge pin.

When told how difficult that item is to find, the 18-year-old Gold smiled and said, ''Yeah, I know. And I have got one of them.''

Gold said she's made the rounds of events since the women's free skate on Saturday. She went to the U.S.-Canada men's hockey game and was planning a short trip to the mountains before the Olympics end Sunday.

''It's a matter of what to do with some down time,'' she said. ''Just trying to enjoy the last couple of days and have some fun.''
