I ♥ Faces: Jump For Joy!

I was fortunate enough to attend this year’s Winter Olympics in Vancouver, CA and enjoy the Ladies’ Short Program Figure Skating event. The photo I chose for this week’s I Heart Faces: Jump for Joy! challenge is of the gold medal winner, Kim Yu-na from South Korea. Here she is in the midst of a triple lutz. Yu-na is known for her grace and beauty, but, here you can see the intensity and concentration in her face, as the centrifugal force lifts her skirt and tugs the muscles from her head to legs in this tight spin. Although this photo may not look “joyful”, her strong performances at the Olympics gave her the gold medal and surely had her JUMPING FOR JOY!!!

And, here is another photo, which I am NOT submitting for this week’s challenge. It was fun also watching the media circus at the Olympics. The cameras and lenses were uber impressive!!
