Celeb-Reiki wins gold in Winter Olympics

Congratulations to Australian snowboarder (and longtime Reiki recipient) Torah Bright, who won the gold medal in the halfpipe in the just-concluded 2010 Winter Olympics!

Bright's victory marks the first time (as far as we know) that a winner of Olympic gold has had a Reiki connection, though Celeb-Reiki cyclist Hayden Roulston of New Zealand won silver and bronze in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Bright grew up receiving Reiki and other natural therapies from her mother, a nurse. "The kids used to joke and say it was all witchcraft and that's why we won the events," Bright said in an interview with the Australian newspaper The Age.

Roulston's success has continued since his Olympic achievements: he distinguished himself in the 2009 Tour de France and just last weekend, he came in fourth in the Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne race.

Bright's next stop: the World Superpipe Championships in Park City, Utah -- her adopted hometown.
