My New Olympic Friend

A couple weeks ago, I went to see someone at Canadian Tire. This was no ordinary someone though, this someone was… Kaitlyn Lawes.

She won the  Olympic gold medal for Women’s Curling, GIRL POWER!!! It was really cool to see a professional who competed  in a big event that only occurs every 4 years. This past one that happened recently took place, as we all know in… Sochi Russia. 

When we got in there , it was a pretty long line. They had a raffle to entertain the crowd. I, of course… sadly didn’t  win anything. Great luck I have (sarcastically speaking lol).  When it was my turn, I will admit, I was a tad bit nervous. I mean, who wouldn’t? It’s an Olympian… with a GOLD MEDAL!! Speaking of  medals, I got to hold the medal. It was  gold, really cool and shiny. It also was heavy (not really though). It read Sochi.ru  2014. 

Do you remember when I said I was nervous? Yeah well, that kicked in causing me to do this:

Kaitlyn: Thank you for coming to meet me 🙂

Me: Your welcome 🙂

Yes, I told an Olympian it was my pleasure for her meeting me :l

Sometimes I wonder why modesty isn’t my middle name. When we left the store after the meet ‘n’ greet my mom laughed and asked me why I said that. My answer “I panicked okay!!!”

This was an amazing experience, I hope I can do  something like this again. 🙂
