    I know figure skating is a sport and a major ingredient in that sport is jumping. Many ladies have triple triples. Among them are Sokolova, Nelidina, Liashenko, Ando, Kostner, Pavuk, Kirk, others that you can think of?

    Questions: Can any of the aforementioned replace Cohen or Kwan from first place? Will any three of them kick both Cohen and Kwan off the podium? Are your answers wishful thinking?

    Sokolova has beaten Sasha last year. Also, you forgot to list Irina. She has proven that she can beat both Michelle and Sasha. Of course, we have no idea what condition she is in.

    Thanks for the article. Too bad she didn't ask me to the Academy Awards, I would have been happy to escort her. Olivia Oppegard...nice ring to it.

    Nice article on Michelle Kwan. I hope to see her skating well at Worlds. There is no denying her impact on the sport artistically and to her doubters, even technically. Other skaters, (Tara, Irina, Sarah (yes, even Sarah) and now Sasha and the Japanese ladies) are trying hard to up their techincal difficulty in order to beat her.
    Tara had to do a triple loop/triple loop PLUS a sequence to beat Kwan.
    Irina needed a consistent 3/3
    Sarah needed two 3/3's
    Sasha needed to discuss the quad to the media and attempt it several times and also her 3/3 and sequences of last season
    All ladies needed a flawless performance

    Kwan isn't my favorite, but I am in awe of her determination and ability to stay focused and consistent. I don't know how any true skating fan can insult and not respect Kwan. Where would skating be without her?
