I think you miss something holding back and only supporting medal winners. Half the fun is watching some of these kids grow up and mature into not just good skaters but fine young adults. Christina has nothing to prove to me and I like her whether she wins a ton of medals or not.
I was reading about a favorite gymnast of mine from '96 and 2000 the other day. She made it through Stanford, is an MD and surgeon and finishing up her residency.
I lost track of her for a few years but I never doubted that Amy Chow was not just a terrific gymnast but a really great young lady. Now she will be a great pediatrician and part-time gymnastics coach.
And who could resist a girl known as "the trickster."
