COLORADO SPRINGS (AP) Figure skater Ashley Wagner has ended her six-year relationship with coach Shirley Hughes and will begin training with Priscilla Hill, the former coach of three-time U.S. champion Johnny Weir. Wagner began training with Hughes in January 2002. She won bronze medals at the 2007 U.S. Figure Skating Championships at the junior level, and at the 2007 world juniors.
"I'm hoping this change helps bring a new maturity to my skating and brings me closer to my dream of competing in the Olympic Games," Wagner said Monday.
