The star for young skaters to wish upon....what a gorgeous image. Thanks for posting this, Janetfan.

The year Tara was the biggest thing in skating, I admired her but could not love her as I love Michelle, Kurt, Gordeyeva/Grinkov, Klimova/Ponomarenko.) Though she's chosen to leave the performance aspect of skating, Michelle surely knows that her fans continue to wish for the best for her, and I'm glad she's chosen to share her latest good news with us.

I think Michelle has led an exceptional life....been an exceptional athlete ...and a wonderful role model.
I for one expect even greater things from Michelle the diplomat. Beyond any doubt I think she is on the path to becoming a tremendous asset to US foreign diplomacy.
I know it is in her to be great .... and I think USA is fortunate to have a person of such high character as a future diplomat representing our country.
As far as Michelle Kwan goes....the best is yet to come.

Agreed, Janetfan! One of Michelle's great strengths is that her skating career, illustrious though it was, will not turn out to be the high point in her life. This in itself is an achievement.
