Regular port-swillers will recall that I mentioned the 10 year old’s upcoming figure-skating competition a couple of days ago?  Well I am pleased to let you know that the competition was held this morning and the gel (wearing an outfit I’m pretty sure was not among the choices being debated earlier) captured the gold.

Granted, there were only four girls in her particular grouping, but this was her very first competition, and I understand that the judges’ decision was unanimous.

I would tell you more – about her routine, and so on – except that I know absolutely nothing about figure skating, or the enormous and highly technical vocabulary that goes along with it.  The only thing I do know about it is that one is always being told that one must buy a new pair of skates for some arcane reason or another, and that each successive pair is exponentially more expensive than its predecessor.

At any rate, well done indeed.
