Wednesday/ flawless

I loved the short pairs program of Chinese figure skaters Sui Wenjing and Han Cong. Their music was k.d. lang’s dreamy, languid rendition* of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’, and the skaters delivered a flawless and emotional performance. Wow.

*Lang sang it at the opening ceremony of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver.

This video still from http://www.nbcolympics.com: ‘Reigning world champions Sui Wenjing and Han Cong from China lead the field after the pairs’ short program on Wednesday, setting them up for China’s first pairs gold medal since 2010. Their emotional, solid short program to K.D. Lang’s “Hallelujah” scored 82.39 points. They took the silver for pairs.
