    Zhang also proved something else — that beneath the sequins and frills, behind the beaming smile is a fighter who, no matter how hard the fall, refused to stay down.

    "I know the generic answer here would be to say I love skating and that I just want to keep skating no matter what people say, but honestly it's more that I had something to prove," Zhang said when asked why she continued after years of adversity.
    It's cool how these beautiful, charming princesses are hard as nails, tough as bricks underneath.

    Go Caroline!

    Me, too. And last year, that splendid Dvorak cello concerto program, just captured my heart. I hope she medals.

    I'm so glad that she's found her inner strength. I , too, was so excited for her at last year's Nationals as you could view it as the start of a potential comeback and how please she was with what she accomplished. Even if she doesn't medal again, she's still a figher and a winner.

    I wonder if she is still positive after last night. Perhaps she should consider skating for China, the native country of her family, if the USFS doesn't want her.
