You were flawless in spite of the comments like "fat, terrible". You deserved it and won it. I'm proud of you! You did it! You're an amazing pixie.Barbellas and Barbellos support you everyday! I hope I'll always see you at Sports Illustrate. Lots of love💖 @realbarbarapalvin #barbarapalvin #sportsillustrated
