Indestructible Knee of Zhang

The Russians may have won, but the stand out superstars of the evening in pairs skating were definitely Zhang and Zhang. The fall was spectacular, and when she was practically carried off the ice we thought it was over...but she got a second wind and they did the program again...and she nailed all of the jumps and throws and the pair now has a silver medal. It was kind of shocking. Talk about Olympic Drama. Looks like Chinese dominance in pairs skating is starting to creep in...the Russians got gold, but China took 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place. And with a performance like Zhang and Zhang gave, they deserve it. And snowboarding is boring...but its fun to pretend to know what you are talking about and critique random details.
