VIDEO — Tara Lipinski & Johnny Weir on Ashley Wagner’s Olympic Heartbreak

People: Olympians Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir are sharing their thoughts about fellow Olympic figure skater Ashley Wagner, who spoke out last week after disappointing scores in the national championships kept her from a spot on Team USA at February’s Winter Games.

“We both really thought that she would be the U.S.’s biggest hope for a medal or on the podium or at least a really good finish,” Lipinski said during a joint appearance with Weir on People Now Thursday.

Wagner competed at the 2014 Olympics in Russia, earning bronze in the team event.

While Lipinski (an Olympic gold medalist herself) said on People Now that “I do think [Wagner’s artistic] score was judged a bit low,” Weir noted that losing is just part of such competitions.

“The Olympics are the biggest deal that there is in figure skating and in any niche sport, so you really have to field a team that’s going to do well,” Weir said. “But somebody’s feelings are always going to get hurt, that’s what sports are all about. If the Patriots lose to somebody, the Patriots’ feelings are hurt. It’s the same thing.”
