SOCHI, Russia — Ashley Wagner calls the popularity of the photo of her reaction to a disappointing score "absolutely hilarious."

The American figure skater was not thrilled with her marks after her short program in the Olympic team event last Saturday. A shot of the sour expression on her face quickly went viral.

Back in Sochi on Saturday after spending several days training in Austria, Wagner called it "one of the most awesome things that ever happened to me in my life."

She found out about the photo Sunday morning when a friend posted it to her Facebook wall, and Wagner thought "this is either going to be really good or really bad."

"Luckily," she says, "people thought it was funny."
