And speaking of the Winter Olympics, Debi Thomas killed it at the 1988 games, and all some folks could talk about was how unladylike it was to wear a unitard.  They banned them for years after this competition.  There was a lot of talk about how athletic her style was as opposed to artistic.  It all sounded very… coded.
I like to imagine that in the pose above, she’s saying “haters to the left,” then stepping off the ice to become an orthopedic surgeon.  Champion at life.
