Kurt hadn't turned pro... and he placed 5... the highest he EVER placed at the Olympics... so don't put him in with Brian Boitano and Katarina WittOriginally posted by Joesitz
I felt a bit off for Nancy Kerrigan. When the results are that close there is no clear winner, for me. I think she could have stuck it out for at least a couple of Worlds.
In my own way, I would have liked to see Tara mature as a competitive skater. Her style was so 'little girlish' and in turning pro it remained that way, imo. Competitive skating I believe would have made the change for the mature Tara.
That Grand Olympics which brought back all the former Olympians only to make them look less than when at their peak. Brian, Kurt. Todd and Elvis did give it another try.
So much happens on THAT NIGHT, it can be crushing for skater and fan. How does one move on with dignity?
Gordeeva and Grinkov came back and whooped em all... and Torvill and Dean held their own!
[edited to add] I am never upset when someone goes pro... I'm more of a professional skating fan anyway... but when they retire from skating period... that's when I'm sad
I was sad that Paul left the skating scene :( I miss his skating
I was also in tears watching Scott's Farewell Tour on TV... while he's not done skating completely... I was sad LOL
