    Joannie Rochette announced as CBCSports female athlete of the year

    Achieving as a high-performance athlete comes down to talent, years of preparation and coaching, plus the mental toughness needed to get over the rough spots.

    On all of those, Joannie Rochette was at the top of her game in Vancouver. And the best of our great female athletes this year.

    And she also takes the QMI Agency's female athlete of the year

    "What was important to me was the judges would judge what they saw on the ice, that they would not feel moved by my story and that would not influence the results," Rochette said, explaining her mindset before the short program. "I wanted to be judged fairly and if I was worth a medal, good. A medal was a bonus. It was my goal but back then it was hard enough just to get on the ice. I think I really wanted that medal in the back of my head but just to get on the ice for the short program was big enough.
