I'm surprised no one posted about Michelle Kwan. She simply is one of the best skater of all times (let's hope Mao follow in her footstep) michelle's my all time favourite until I found out about Mao asada, who instantly became my favourite. But I still feel that michelle's a great skater who potrays her character marvelously. She is very inspiring, and the way she skates make you feel like you did not waste that 4/5 mins you spent watching her. That's all I can think of now.

Thanks for starting this thread. I love Michelle Kwan! I fell in love with the sport because of her.

Michelle is skating in Singapore recently and ontd_skating has posted some articles, pictures, & videos.

She looks gorgeous in those photos.

Argh!!! I forgot about this!!! But then today is the only day I can register for language classes so I still couldn't go to Marina Bay Sands...

This is surely a missed opportunity for me. Sad

edt: She's coming back next month?! I have to find more info on this...

I see many things which are common for Mao & Michelle. Both of them won their first world titles 2 years before olympic game and both of them won the silver at the olympics and after that the world title the same year Wink I hope Mao will follow Michelle and will win 5 world titles, but I also want her to win the gold in Sochi!!!!

Maybe she will follow in Michelle kwan's path and win 5 world titles, and reclaim the world title thrice. Nice observation though.

How Missing Out on the Gold Changed Michelle Kwan's Life

Not sure if this was posted in the forums already, but Michelle talking about how she "trained her hardest, tried her best and still not getting what she wanted" made me remember how badly I rooted for her to win OGM. She sounds as if she's at peace with her loss and... Well, just click the link and hear the words straight from the Kween! Smile

Thanks Klarification. Michelle Kwan is my first introduction to the world of figure skating, and while I love her skating and I hope that Mao would achieve such a legendary status as Michelle, I don't think she should've won the gold in '98. Tara won by higher technical marks: she had triple-triple while Michelle just played safe.

I agree, Tara (I was rooting for her to win) won fairly. True, her jumps were small, but boy did she rotate them fast, and those two 3-3 Swoon You could tell she skated her heart out, no regrets later. I think Michelle played safe at both olympics, though, imo, firing Frank months before Salt Lake didn't help her one bit. She should've had a coach with her there, not her father.
And I would've put Sasha in 3rd instead... Escape Michelle was slow and cautious.

Congrats Michelle!
She certainly looks fab and I believe she's always been a goddess for most of us figure skating fans, Alokya!
I'm very happy she's been leading a good respectful life and hope she'll go on doing so. Very Happy

I didn't know that this is her hubby's last name. Michelle Pell sounds so funny, but then again I've been used to Michelle Kwan for 15 years, so I guess it'll take time to get used to this. Does anyone know if she'll keep Kwan or will she take on her hubby's surname?

I bet she will keep her own name. Celebrities rarely change their last names. She may take on his last name in addition to her own though - Kwan Pell. Idk. I hope she just keeps it the same.

I wonder if Vera Wang designed her dress. She used to wear a lot of her dresses for skating.

Vera did create Michelle's dress. Here's People's article with some interesting bits on the wedding ceremony.
