Well, if you have a thing for icy, robotic women....

I assume you're joking? Nastia stood on the podium for the medal ceremony in the Uneven Bars, which was stolen from her, and smiled and showed pure class. I have nothing but admiration for her.

If you're not kidding, I'd substitute "determination" and "cool" while performing under great stress for "icy". For these women, girls really, this is IT, they work their whole young lives for the opportunity to get it right for just a few minutes in front of the whole world. Most of them go to one or two Olympics at the most. To endure such pressure and do well is an amazing accomplishment and takes a special kind of person.
