Bronze for Rochette!

Wow. What a brave performance by Joannie Rochette. She fully deserved her bronze medal and it was heartbreaking watching her try to hold it together on the podium after receiving her medal. I am so proud of her and what she was able to accomplish today after everything that she's been through.

The amazing part of this story is that she's only the fifth Canadian woman in Winter Olympic history to win a medal in women's figure skating.

Even though she only won the bronze medal, Rochette deserves a gold medal for her courage and perseverance through the most difficult of times. Very few athletes would have taken part in a sporting event as huge as the Olympics (or any other event) shortly after the tragic death of a loved one.
