  1. Maybe, if she didn't have any injuries. But still she performed better than other figure skaters. Other figure skaters have consistency problems.

  2. What I really liked about Michelle Kwan was the way she conducted herself. Very positive, and honest at the same time…and her skating was ethereal. I wish more people were like her.

  3. I love this. Michelle and I are the same age. I was in high school when I watched Michelle skate this program. So many memories.

  4. The criticism that I have is that I wished she would done another type of 3/3 instead of the 3toe/3toe. I think she would have more credit I believe and she could have put the 3toe at the end if she didn't make it.

  5. It's kinda' annoying that the commentators keep talking & showing clips while they're announcing her scores. They need to stop as soon as they're announced.

  6. I think something was hard in her family – pressure or something. Tara, Kristi had super happy supportive families and such joy. Anyway hope all these yrs later, and even divorced, I hope she is so happy ..

  7. Her solid foundation created a lot of opportunities for other American skaters … to even surpass her each Olympics. Behind each gold Olympic during those years … was Michael Kwan.
