    Envoy Kwan heading to Russia

    http://www.latimes.com/sports/olympi...ports-olympics

    And training for a marathon perhaps?

    Sounds like life is going really great for her with schooling and traveling and exercising. Interesting comment about not having found a husband -- guess things aren't going so well with her boyfriend, if they're still together. Here's a thought, Michelle Kwan for U.S. President! First female president, and first former competitive figure skater.

    I wonder what she and Irina will be discussing. Potential return to competition? (Katya Gordeeva returned after giving birth -- why not Irina?)

    Thanks for the post, Sandee. Great article. Interesting bit about being "out of shape mentally." It sounds like she is really getting into the education thing. Also the envoy thing.

    Talk about a goal-oriented person. If she can't skate, how about a nice 26-mile run?

    Trivia: The President of Kalmykia, where Michelle will visit, is also the president of the International Chess Federation. Chess is big there.

    Yeah, there was a fascinating article on him in the New Yorker a few months back. Of course, what he did to World chess is waaaaay worse than anything Speedy ever tried to do to figure skating (though now that I think about it the goals are identical).

    They were always friends, not really rivals. Don't you remember the kisses, the smiles? It was genuine, not just diplomatic! Totentanz was choosen on purpose by both for the SP. It wasn't a coincidence IMO.

    Thanks for the link. Michelle has so much going on in her life, she does not have time to miss skating. It would be nice to see photos of her and Irina together in Russia..

    10 credit hours in the summer!

    I'm taking eleven, and I'm not trying to go overseas! Go Kwan!

    But could Abraham Lincoln do a triple Lutz?
    Abe Lincoln would look at a picture of Bush, Cheney and Rove and scream out "Triple Putz!"
    LMAO!
