Gold for Shizuka Arakawa

Shizuka Arakawa (2006)
The Olympics tends to pass me by as a financially crippling non-event, but on Sunday evening I was lucky enough to catch a replay of Shizuka Arakawa's gold-medal-winning free programme in the Women's Single Figure Skating, perfectly timed with Puccini's Turandot. Wow! Her performance wasn't mere sport; it was art of the highest order. Beautiful.
