I'm no figure skating expert. I'm just a fan who wanted to write a fist-pumping post celebrating Adelina Sotnikova, despite the chatter that her free skate scores were higher than she deserved. But. But.
Yesterday during the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, ladies from around the world competed in the women's short program figure skating. This involved strapping on shoes encumbered by sharp blades and leaping up over a solid sheet of ice. Terrifying, beautiful, courageous.
We love the 32nd Annual Salute to Women in Sports gala, held at The Waldorf-Astoria, because when else besides the Olympics do you get to see such a varied group of female athletes, all together, and dressed in their best?
