OK, so this year's women's figure skating intrigue is nothing compared to 1994's Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan saga , but it's looking like Team USA will come in to Sochi under a cloud of controversy. At this weekend's US championships, American officials decided to put Ashley Wagner, 22, on the team, despite her fourth-place finish. That ended the Olympic dreams of Mirai Nagasu, 20, who had secured the bronze medal at the competition. Gracie Gold, 18, who won gold at the US championships, and 15-year-old Polina Edmunds, who took silver, round out the team.
