I completely agree with VietGrl. I don't think Michelle would have gone pro after Nagano no matter what the result. She was 17 and only at the beginning of a wonderful career. Certainly the dream of Olympic Gold was a factor in her decision to stay eligible, but I have to say that I actually believe it when Michelle says "I love to compete." I also think she'll stay for 2006. I couldn't be more pleased to see this. She brings an elegance and stability to this sport that I would miss terribly.
