Vancouver crowd cheers for Joannie Rochette

Of all the outstanding and emotional performances that have highlighted the Winter Olympics thus far, one of them seems to be standing out as “the moment”.  This past Tuesday night, Canadian skater Joannie Rochette admittedly forced herself onto the ice for competition just two days after the death of her mother.  The 24 year old then went on to compete and win a bronze medal on Thursday evening.

Check out the video below for the heart felt response from the crowd after her inspiring Tuesday night performance.
