Xu Lijia’s public persona seems to be much the same as her private persona: rather reserved and serious; so it’s a bit surprising so see her laughing and giggling like a schoolgirl, even if it does seem to be in spite of herself.
She and her husband/long-time coach, Jon Emmett, sat down with ShanghaiEye to talk about something that was not sailing (even though they tried to). There is nothing more adorable than when serious people try to be serious, but fail miserably and start giggling. Check this one out. You will never see two hardened competitors being cuter.
I don’t know about you guys, but my Year of the Dog wish is to be as in love as they are.
