I had a feeling that's what the deal was, Tim leaving the ice in tears during his practice session earlier. Makes sense, since Angela and Tim did train together for a time...
Does anybody else want to cry right now???
You know, it was wonderful to see Tim wearing his emotions on his sleeve in regards to how he feels for his friend, Angela Nikodinov.
The skaters can almost seem robotic at times when they are "getting into the zone" to prepare to skate (I do NOT mean this as a bash at all!). And those not in the know may think it's all so competitive that the skaters don't care much about each other except to beat them.
Seeing the human side, the caring side, was refreshing. Kudos to Tim for being such a good and caring friend to Angela.
That said, it's a terrible tragedy for Angela and her family. I was surprised to see her at the competition Saturday, but I guess that is all part of "getting back to normal"...which you must do no matter how sad and devastating a loss(death) is.
