Watching Gershwin, a documentary on YuNa and Wilson (Orser was not even mentioned by then, poor guy) I saw YuNa receiving her medal and giving it a once over. YuNa clearly was thinking "I worked all my life for this potato chip on a blue ribbon?" This is a joke for those who may be wondering. Seriously, I had forgotten how Weird the gold medals looked in Vancouver. Who can blame YuNa for wanting to retire the potato chip for a newer and better model.
Are medals surprises, kept under wraps until Olympics? I hope Sochi's are more traditional. How does one engrave a potato chip shaped piece of metal Here's hoping for some elegance from the land of beautiful art. Me? I'd want a Faberge Egg, with a Russian snow scene. I think it would be tough to do gold, silver and bronze but having some Russian pins and nesting dolls, there are fabulous painters. Anyone know what the Sochi medals look like? I wouldn't mind if they were actual ice skates in real gold, silver and bronze. I think that would be awesome to gaze at long after one stops skating. Getting excited -Olympic fever.
