There was women's figure skating on TV last night, I think for choosing people for the U.S. Olympic team. I watched it off and on, but the last skater was a young woman about 18. The first thing that made me cheer was that she was skating to music from the "Sleeping Beauty" ballet. (God, I'm such a sucker for Tchaikovsky, I mean really.) She did a fantastic job, despite one little fumble and you could tell that she was happy as she was going along--there were a couple moments when she did that "shaking your fists in the air when you're happy" thing, though it was subtle in a "blink and you miss it" kind of way. At the end of the routing she was cheering too, and when she got the score putting her in first place she exploded with glee. So cute.

ETA: Found it! Her name is Gracie Gold and you can watch the routine I'm talking about on YouTube.
