Words cannot describe how excited I was to watch Joannie Rochette win a silver medal for Canada last night at the World Figure Skating Championships in Los Angeles.
Joannie’s performance didn’t match the technical expertise of a few of her competitors, but her artistry was second-to-none. She was beautiful, captivating and composed.
My favorite part of the evening was seeing the final group of skaters standing side-by-side as they waited to get onto the ice to warm up. Rochette is fit by anyone’s standards, but standing next to the Japanese and Korean skaters, she looked like Serena Williams standing next to Kate Moss.
You’ve gotta love a girl who looks like she can take care of herself! If she makes it onto the cover of FASHION or Flare in time for the Vancouver Olympics next year, I hope they put her in something that shows off those shoulders. The girl is buff!
