Perdita Felicien is alive and well, in case anyone thought she crawled under a rock for good after her Athens Olympic Games disappointment.And she's making a huge comeback.
I know, because I met her and felt her back Wednesday night at a media panel discussion facilitated by the lovely Mary Anne Chambers.
I was a little startled when I gently touched her back while giving her a Christian side hug - that girl is deezed! Yes, she's been working out but that's not the only indication that this track star is back on the come-up. In fact, this past weekend the Pickering native won silver at the 2010 world indoor championships in Doha, Qatar.Perdita's strong return could not come any sooner for the legions of young athletes that really look up to her. In her prime and poised to make a great comeback, the world is watching once again.
