Now that it's official, let's see how much press commotion there'll be during her stay. Also, let the predictions begin. How's she gonna do?
:chorus: does little dance!
Red Dog -
I predict: drumroll
Michelle finishes in Fourth Place behind Shizuka.
There, I said it!
I'm thrilled that she will get her chance for her last Olympic dream. Good luck and good health to all the competitors!
Thanks for posting the results...I am sooooooooooo happy!!!!
After all this GOLD will be no sweat at all.
I am very glad that Michelle will get to go to the Olympics!
Very happ for Michelle. She did most of the jumps except triple loop.
for Michelle and the US Team! :chorus:
Yay!! I'm so Happy!
Based on the picture, she looks to be in much much better shape than during Marshall's and the fluff interviews broadcast during Nationals.
Even if she doesn't bring home gold, I'm glad that she's getting this chance to go to Turin.
There should be enough bad press as we have seen to keep you happy.Originally Posted by Red Dog
She'll be the dark horse that wins the Olys.
With good footwork but somewhat mixed jump results...
LP: skipped 2axel, 3-4 triples (including 3lutz-2toe-2toe), ending 2lutz
SP: 2axel (fall), 3lutz-2toe, 3flip (shaky)

That probably would have made the team at Nationals. Alissa fell twice and was still in it after the SP. 4 clean triples with some decent spin levels and her normal high component scores probably would have beaten Emily. Not sure about Kimmie who had 7 triples.Originally Posted by insecureedge
LET THE NITPICKING BEGIN
I'll start. Without the loop jump, she will need, imo, her magical charisma upgraded to level 5.
On the plus side, Rachmaninoff has been good for Kwan. I just hate those opening beats (sounds like the grim reaper is ready to take someone.)
