    Lyndsey,
    We are very proud of you. The strength and grace you have shown throughout is amazing. It’s a shame people want to focus on what you didn’t accomplish rather than all that you have achieved. Keep your head held high. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
    Kathleen Jacobellis

    I didn’t say anything about her not being good…I think she is quite good at what she does.

    I think youth today shouldn’t be watching someone show such bad sportsmanship on such a large stage. Her ego got in the way in Torino and while that wasn’t totally the case in Vancouver, she still could be a better ambassador to the youth of the world.
