First the Kween, then the Shibutanis, and now...

‏@SarahandDrew tweeted earlier this week:
"Thrilling! @Amanda_Evora will be attending a State Department lunch in Washington on Friday, in honor of President Aquino."

From an Embassy of the Philippines D.C. press release:

President Benigno S. Aquino III [will] be feted at a luncheon hosted by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at the State Department [on Friday, June 8, 2012].

So happy for her ... she must be thrilled. I take it that she is of Filipino ancestry?

What a nice honor, and she has certainly always been a great representative for the sport and country. I'm very happy for her.

Too bad she and Mark didn't try to skate for Phillipines, back in the day...

Yes. :)

Why would they have wanted to do that? :confused: They've both always seem proud to represent the USA and making the 2010 Olympic team was a crowning achievement in their career.

I hope we fans will be able to hear something about Amanda's experience at today's luncheon.

This is what we get for having a Secretary of State who is also a figure skating fan! :)

Aquino is probably one of the worst Phil President.

Aquino is probably one of the worst Phil President.

That subject has nothing to do with what we are discussing here.
