Your moment of Zen: Sanne van Kerkhof of The Netherlands; Short Track
Sanne is one of the openly gay athletes competing in these Olympics. Don’t tell Putin! He’s already mad about yesterday’s game!
Kudos to Meryl Davis and Charlie White, juniors at Michigan, who just won the US ice dancing championships and will be heading to Vancouver. Two sophomores, Emily Samuelson and Evan Bates came in third and may also be heading to Vancouver as part of the US olympic team.
These kids are amazing athletes and we should all be proud. Leaders and best comes through again.
