A couple of years ago I shocked the world by revealing my identity as a blogging tennis champion. However, I'm not the only world-class athlete who has taken up residence at McBone outpost #1211. Since the Winter Olympics are in full swing, now would seem an appropriate time to reveal something about my wife as well.
Born in 1977, my wife, representing the former East Germany, won her first gold medal in figure skating at the Olympics in Sarajevo in 1984 at the age of eight. Her early development into womanhood (attributed by some to Soviet bioengineering technology) did not go unnoticed by the international ice skating community, particularly among enthusiasts who fell under the demographic of 'straight male,' of which there was a sudden and exponential increase.
She would repeat her gold medal achievement in 1988 in Calgary, cementing her place among the immortals.
Here Katarina (known today as 'Alex') and I enjoy a quiet cocktail before hordes of fans sent us running for our limousine.
