Kwan Has Withdrawn
Michelle Kwan dropped out of the Turin Olympics on Sunday morning, one day after she cut short a practice because of a recurring groin injury.
The U.S. Olympic Committee submitted a request to replace Kwan with Emily Hughes, the third-place finisher at last month’s nationals. An answer is expected later this week, and Hughes was expected to travel to Turin on Sunday.

This confirms my "gut feeling" from earlier in the season that we would not see MIchelle skate again (as an amateur). The Olympics, for me, just got less exciting...............good luck and get well soon, Michelle.................42
I am bummed. The competition is just not the same without Michelle.
I wish her the best.
