I would like to send Joannie Rochette a big hug for her courage in continuig her Olympic journey. We love you and wish you well during this truly difficult time. It does not matter if you win a medal, because life is about doing the best you can at any given moment. In the end, it's just you and the ice, backed by a whole lot of family love and support.
