My Olympic Diary: Day 11 – Figure Skating Gold for Canada

The final scoreboard for Ice Dancing.

CANADA ROCKS! My first Olympic event was tonight and I got to see Canadians Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir win an Olympic Gold Medal in Ice Dancing for Canada.  It was stunning, amazing, nerve-wracking, and a moment I will never forget! It was so special to see this. Never in a million years did I think I would be seeing Canada win a Gold Medal when I bought the tickets for this event 9 months ago. If I’m as proud as I am of this couple, I can only imagine how their coaches, families and friends must feel.  What an honour to witness this tonight.  Congratulations to all involved in this Gold Medal.
