    To me, it defined her as a human being, it transcend skating, transcend competitions. I cried buckets as a little girl, learned a lot towards life lessons over night.
    It was simply unforgettable.
    You just made me cry remembering it!

    To show her ability to share her emotions with an audience: 2002 SLC Fields of Gold EX
    A pre-1996 video could also help to make them understand how she improved...
    yes, I agree, a pre-1996 video to show the improvement and transformation is key!

    This is amazing! Thank you so much, Mathman!!

    Are you really a math professor? My son is a brilliant math student and might want to be a math teacher too someday! He was conceived in 98, shortly after the Olympics, and I listened to Lyra Angelica throughout my pregnancy with him.
