    I think she will stay for one more try. I think her competitive drive will stay alive if she continues to do fewer competitions like she has been.

    I reckon she will. She's taking it one year at a time, competing less, and I think that's good for her. There's only 2 more years till the Olympic year, so I reckon she'll go for it, even if she doesn't want to commit herself to it yet by making a statement. It'll be incredible if she wins!

    Of course she will! But too bad - if she follows her usual Olympic trend, she won't be even on the podium in Turino! :D

    I'm going to turn in a different direction by saying Maybe. I reckon even she doesn't know yet (or maybe she does but is keeping it to herself) but personally, I would rather her not but if she wants to let her try.

    Yes, I believe that Michelle can do it. Let us hope that the 3rd time is, indeed, a charm. :D

    She may want one more shot, I don't think it is anywhere near "desperately".

    I agree with RTureck. For the life of me I can't see anything remotely approaching "desperation" in Michelle's attitude toward the Olympic games, nor anything in her words or actions that would cause anyone to want to invent such a feeling and ascribe it to her.

    If Michelle does compete, I am sure that she will do so with aplomb and grace, whatever the outcome.

    If she wants to stay and that fits in with her life I'd be thrilled to see her go out with one last Olympic experience. But, I don't think it really matters anymore in terms of winning or not. Sure, I'd be elated to see her with Olympic Gold (And I'm sure she would too), but she's more than shown just why it is she has such an enormous fan base. An Olympic Gold wouldn't make me respect her skill and attitude anymore than I already do. Although, a secret part of me would love to have her in Turino just to annoy her detractors....the Gold Medal Hungry Kwan vows to skate until Olympic Gold or forced retirement! LOL..no, honestly, I feel she'll be there. I think she would have retired already if she really felt Turino wasn't in the cards.

    I said "other", b/c I think if she decides to compete in another Oly and try for the gold, she may have to take a new approach w/ her training and technical content. The field is only getting tougher in terms of technical skating and she will have to add more difficult jumps to her programs if she wants to contend for gold. If she decides to commit to a new approach, she will go for it. But (IMHO) she would have to commit to doing things somewhat differently.

    She definitely wants another try at gold, and this time I think she'll win.
