That's a decent segment; she makes the sport seem really accessible. Hopefully more of this sort of thing can get more women into the sport.

The comments section is rather unfortunate, however. *sigh*

Feedback from Hannah :D

I'm blown away! I have just got the stats from cnn.com and they said I had 1.5 million hits on the US homepage and 76k on International homepage in just 12 hours! Pretty happy :) :thumb:
