After winning Olympic gold, Tara went professional. After winning Olympic gold, Sarah continued to compete but did not do as well as was expected.
If Michelle had won the Olympics in 98 or in SLC would she have continued competing or would she have gone to school. gone pro, or just moved on with her life.
In 98 I think she would have gone to school and enjoyed the life of just a regular student. After SLC, she would have returned to school but would have persued other interests as well. That is my take on the "Would Have."
