And so, dear Lord, it is with deep sadness that we turn over to you this young woman, whose dream to ride on a giant swan resulted in her death. Maybe it is your way of telling us... to buy American.
Well done, Kevin! Now we just need that comaback in pairs. Narumi Takahashi would need a partner, and she is a tiny girl to lift.
That is really great, he looked so nervous and then really surprised and happy when the winning couple was announced.
Good for you, Kevin!
Congrats to my favourite 3-3-3 skater.
Crazy about sports!
CONGRATULATIONS, MR. KEVIN VAN DER PERREN, ON ANOTHER WELL DESERVED ACCOLADE (this time in a totally different venue; how versatile!)!!!!
You can now take this exceptional experience, Kevin, and apply it to your pairs career, which I'm now led to believe is quite serious, ole!
Well done Kevin

"Randy [Starkman (1960-April 16, 2012)] lived by the same motto as the rest of us. The Olympics isn’t every four years, it’s every single day. He just got it." --Canadian Olympic kayaker Adam van Koeverden
I loved this,
When he struggled with moves, van der Perren showed them to McCorkell, the 10-time British ladies champion, and she caught on much more quickly than he did.
"It would be great if they would ask her to do the British version (Strictly Come Dancing)," van der Perren said. "Things I couldn't do, I was trying at home. She would try and just do it. I said, 'OK, you depress me.'"
"'Is this new BMW-designed sled the ultimate sledding machine for Langdon and Holcomb?' Leigh Diffey asked before the pair cruised to victory. I don’t know, but I know that sled is the ultimate Olympic Games product placement.." -- Jen Chaney
Maybe the US version will do an All-Stars season bringing winners from other countries to compete against one another here??
Congrats to Kevin, I'm happy for him. He was always a hard worker who tried to make the most of the talents he had and he always seemed gracious to his fans.
