Everytime I think about Joannie Rochette and her gutsy performance on the ice yesterday, it brings a little juice to the eye. What an incredible woman! As for Team Canada making it to another battle with the USA in the Mens' Hockey - that surely has to be the sort of cliffhanger cum dream conclusion to these Games!!!
We've not seen anything really in the way of Olympic paraphernalia down at the bottom of the world, but we did receive a wonderful parcel with some of those cute mascots from Olympic City! Very cool indeed.
And though we haven't won many medals in the Summery South, the media has reported that these Games have reputedly been the most successful Winter Olympics for Australia. Lydia Lassila (womens' aerials) won Australia's 2nd gold the other day. And Torah Bright (our Opening Ceremony flagbearer) enraptured the hearts of fellow Australians when she won gold in the Halfpipe. And of course, there have been many others who are rising young stars who have done this country proud.
Not bad for a country which normally deals with 'watersports' of a less frozen nature!
