Carly Christine Gold was an American figure skater. She was the 2016 Pacific Coast Sectional and Southwest Pacific Regional champion.
Carly was born on August 17, 1995, in Newton, Massachusetts, to Denise, an emergency room nurse, and Carl Gold, an anesthesiologist. She has a fraternal twin sister, two-time US national figure skating champion and Olympic bronze medallist Gracie Gold, who is older by 40 minutes. Gold was raised in Springfield, Missouri, before moving to Springfield, Illinois. She graduated from a distance learning program called the University of Missouri High School.
Carly started skating a year after her twin sister in Springfield, Missouri. The family then moved to Springfield, Illinois, and Carly and Gracie trained in the Chicago area. In late 2013, the pair moved to Los Angeles to train with veteran coach Frank Carroll. Carly won silver at the Upper Great Lakes Regional in the 2012–13 season. The 2015–16 season was her strongest yet; Carly qualified for the 2016 U.S. Figure Skating Championships by winning gold at both the Southwest Pacific Regionals and Pacific Coast Sectional Figure Skating Championships. She finished 19th at nationals after coming 15th in the short program and 21st in the free. She and Gracie were the first set of twins skating at the senior ladies championships since Alissa Czisny and her sister Amber in 2003.
Carly announced her retirement from skating in the summer of 2016 saying she had achieved her goal of skating at nationals and wanted to move on from skating to pursue a career in photography. She began attending Marymount California University in the fall of 2016.
