    She may be or may be not. She'll evaluate how competetive her skating is year by year...

    I'm going to say if she is there, she will DEFINITELY be on podium.

    I voted "yes" because I think Michelle plans to go for another Olympic try. However, I think a lot will depend on the competition at that point. I think she is using an excellent strategy......keep eligible and size-up the competition. Shortly before Turnio she can determine her chances of standing on the podium. I think if Michelle feels she has a chance to beat the competition, she will go for it.

    There is a lot of talent developing among the ladies right now, however, injuries can play a big role in who is still standing by Turino. Some of the ladies who are burning themselves out practicing the triple and quad jumps may be history by the time Turnio rolls around. There is always a chance that a special little dynamo is yet to show up who will walk away with the Gold.

    Michelle is a very smart and experienced competitor. I expect her to stay eligible and not make an announcement regarding her bid for Turino until the very last moment. If she goes to Turnio, it will be to win or to at least stand on the podium. It won't be "for another Olympic experience" like she may say to the press.

    I think she would like to try or win but I don't know if she's as interested as she use to be because maybe she feels that winning gold may not be in her cards after the last 2 times. The wins were so weird that I would start to think that it's just not meant for me. So I will go with maybe she will try.

    Yup, I think she'll go for it. If she's in shape, why not? 42

    From little girl to mature lady, MK, will always be the "best" for me.

    Imo, she is now a mature lady and has already been making decisions for herself vis-a-vis Frank and Lori. I believe she is mature in other ways besides figure skating, too. I see her as moving on at some point. When? I think it will be soon.

    Anyone who saw her at Worlds has to admit there's a lot more there than perhaps people realized. I think if she is still skating anywhere close to that in two years, she will go.

    I said yes, but I also believe that it will depend on how the next two seasons go for her.

    I say YES! One I would so LOVE to see her stick around for another Olympics and I really dont think shes ready to stop competing as an amatuer.
