Yesterday, I was sad to hear the news of a Japanese figure skater, Mao Asada. She didn't do well. She made mistakes when she fell on the triple axel and other jump performances. I deeply felt sympathy with her position or feelings since I knew she had always felt the pressure of expectations as the best figure skater in Japan.

I wondered wether she could get over the shock of her failure, but this morning amazing thing happened. She made it! I saw her perfect performance on TV. She was able to demonstrate her power to the full extent to all of us. When I saw her tear in her eyes, I was overwhelmingly filled with emotion and couldn't stop crying.
I thought her accomplishment was more than a medal!
