Gold was in fourth place after the short program and could not climb any higher in the free skate or long program.
Gold fell during the program but that may have not made that much of a difference.
The top three skaters were just too strong.
Russian Adelina Sotnikova won the gold while South Korea's Yuna Kim finished second.
This was Gracie Gold's first olympic competition, she was introduced to skating in Springfield at Mediacom ice park.
