My Favorite Skater

Like most gymnastics fans, I also follow ice skating. There has been a lot of press for the young Russian skater, Yulia Lipnitskaia, who performed two solid performances last week to help Russia win gold in the team event. She's wonderful and has a great future. And, wow, that flexibility! She's just 15 years old.

The U.S. has a pretty talented 15 year old competing this week too.

But....I am soooo sad that while these two teens will be performing, another 15 year old will be home, a couple months younger than her peers and thus unable to compete. Watch, fall in love and count down until 2018.
