This was such a lovely story.  I'm sure everyone in Australia knows by now that Torah Bright won gold for the women's half pike.  Her family surprised her by secretly going to watch her compete, she wasn't expecting to see them until her wedding in June, in Salt Lake City.

I remember watching an interview with Torah in Australian Story. She seems like such a down to earth person who has held strongly to her religious views and her upbringing.  As a Mormon, there are many elements of the snowboarding lifestyle that are at odds with her values.  But. Torah has just been herself, done the right thing but at the same time not been judgemental on those around her.

She's such an inpsiration to all of us, regardless of what religions we may or may not follow.

Good on ya, Torah!!!!  Congratulations!!!

    I have read two entries so far and enjoyed what I've read.

    Torah Bright has the most beautiful smile :) I am glad she won gold.
