I love the Winter Olympics and figure skating is my favorite.

Congratulations to the winners Tatiana and Maxim.  Their performance was beautiful and a well-deserved win.

And for  the Chinese pair come back out and compete after she had that terrible fall took a lot of courage. I'm glad they held on  to take the silver medal.

Thanks for posting all those pics, palimpsest.

A link to the AOL story on the win:

I'd also like to say congratulations to US skaters Rena Inoue and John Baldwin wound up seventh, one spot down from their short program standing but the best full-field international finish for a U.S. pair since the 2002 worlds. Inoue, even at her young age, is a lung cancer survivor. To make a comeback from such a dreadful illness and come to the Olympics and do so well (esp landing that  throw triple axel to make Olympic history in the short program) is a huge feat.
