Katie Eberling – Bobsled
I always say a prayer while waiting in the start house and jump three times at the line before we go. I try to keep the superstitions and rituals to a minimum, so that I don’t get anxious if something changes.

I write my sister and dad’s initials on my race bib. (They are both deceased.)

Jessica Smith – Speed Skating
If skating is going well, I typically will do the same routine as the day before. I will put the same skate on first that I did the day before or eat the same things that I was eating the day before. Sometimes even keep the same sports bra on throughout the competition.

I am not superstitious but I always wear my hair in braids, tucked up into my goggle strap.

Gracie Gold – Figure Skating
I juggle before I compete. It helps me achieve a relaxed focus. I also listen to my iPod.
