Olympic Excitement!

This past weekend I was in London (Ontario, not England!) watching the national championships of figure skating.  The results from this competition decide who makes it onto the Olympic team and I think everyone rose to the challenge.  There were lots of good performances as well as a couple truly amazing ones that blew me away!

Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir are always a treat to watch and this was no exception - their program seemed to fly by in half the time of any of their competitors!  Patrick Chan was the other skater that really stood out head and shoulders above the rest.

At the end of the weekend they announced the Olympic figure skating team and it was great to see how excited these athletes are to be representing their country in the Olympic Games.  It made me a *teeny* bit less excited about going as a spectator (not nearly as exciting as going to compete after all) but since I have neither the dedication, drive or passion to pursue anything at an Olympic level I will be very satisfied with watching others and cheering them on. Much less pressure that way!
