and your interview with Michelle Pickles on TV3 last night was typically candid and refreshing- you are so open, so honest, and so rightly proud of yourself and your achievements – just as you should be. What did I love about the interview?:
I love that fact you have no qualms about admitting that are back-to-back Olympic champion –not in an arrogant way, just in that lovely ‘Valerie’ way.
I love that fact that you are desperate to get your hands on that Gold medal – “better late than never” you said with that carefree shrug of your shoulders.
I love the fact that are not wasting your energy thinking about what Ostapchuk took from you on the day…. though I did love the understated rolling of your eyes when mentioned her name …
I love the way you talk about your family and clearly show how much they mean to you.
I love the way you frankly display love and respect for your coach.
I love the fact you are so passionate and committed to your chosen sport.
I love the way you brushed aside the problems you had leading up to your event and moved on so quickly.
I love that you are so proud of your country and being a Kiwi.
I love the fact that you were so blown away that the All Blacks might want to be involved in your medal ceremony… BRING IT ON!!
