Sad to lose her mom like that but the American should have got silver. I love the Olympics but as much as I wanted her to win, this bronze didn't feel right. There was a suspiciously long delay and the flawless American got a score of 125 is suspicious and as a Canadian fan of Rochette I hoped she would rise above it and give away her medal to the more deserving athlete. Despite the lost of her mom. For sure I would i fallen into a soaken red eye Sasquatch but I would have been so proud.
