    The first article mentions things said on Twitter, but has it been confirmed as the real Michelle Kwan? I've always thought it was just a fan, especially since there's a link directly to the MK fan forum. That just seemed odd to me.

    Sounds like speculation to me. No one really knows what she is doing, and it will likely stay that way until an announcement from her camp is made.

    The skating world would go on with or without any individual. But why do you feel it necessary to make such a statement directed at Michelle? I think the answer to that is apparent.

    A couple of readers alerted the columnist about the fake Kwan twitter. The article has been rewritten to delete that material.

    Except it ignores the huge amount Michelle has done for the sport. Figure skating would still exist without Michelle, but if Michelle had never existed, ladies figure skating would look VASTLY different than it does now. Countless young ladies were inspired by her and skate today because of that. I see no point to the comment - it's neither objective nor fair, it is "technically true" yet ends up implying the opposite of the truth.

    Anyway, there's lots of dedicated Michelle fans that can take it from here. They'll get a lot more enjoyment out of it. I'm pretty tired of being the lone voice of reason.

    Well, it's true, so why should Kwan be exempt?

    Thanks for posting.

    nothing new in these articles...only a watered down version of what we have been saying on this forum.

    AFAIK, it is not real Kwan.
