Spokane has the privelege of hosting the 2007 US Figure Skating Championships, and I had the honor of attending tonight. Tonight was the Senior Women's Competition and I was WOW'd! It was a fabulous show! There was so much talent, glitter and glam. These girls are fabulous.
17-year-old Kimmie Meissner won tonight. She was stunning in her poise and strength, making her triples look so easy. How she gets herself so high in the air - never mind landing on one thin blade - I cannot comprehend. My favorite performer was Emily Hughes who took 3rd place. It was her attitude that swept me away. She exuded joy and passion and the true grit of a winner.
And the little girls who swept the ice after each competitor, picking up the gifts that were thrown onto the ice, were just the cutest little things!
What a nice night we had!
