Congratulations Torah! We watched with watery eyes and bated breath; it was agony! Australia is so proud of you!

Congrats!! Can you imagine having the skill and nerves to accomplish such a daring triumph!!

Hi Lyn, I was beginning to think that this subject didn't interest anyone... I know what you mean and she had a very bad first run, stumbled in the middle and only a score of 5. So to get up with a perfect run and score of 45.9 to win Gold in the second run was something!!

Steven...we're loving all events; it's getting very good coverage here. As you said, medal or not, we applaud their skills and some of them their efforts to have even made an Olympic team!
