Asian Ladies Capture the Ice

We all are impressed by the stereotype given to our Asian sisters and brothers – talent, hard work, great fine motor skills, discipline, cool under pressure, single-minded determination. The World Chamiponships in Tokyo only proves the point. The gold goes to Miki Ando, Japan, silver to Mao Asada, Japan, and bronze to Yu-Na Kim, Korea. It’s hard to imagine being any better. They exhibit grace and athleticism. The new power is obviously in the East. American Kimmie Meissner ranked fourth. Men’s skating is not yet so dominated by Asian brothers. Brian Joubert, France took gold, Daisuke Takahashi, Japan silver and Stephane Lambiel of France bronze. Evan Lysacek was the highest ranked American at 5th.
