I have read and read on this board and others about Sarah Hughes' failings as a skater. Can someone tell me what's the matter with her skating (as it stood when she was actively skating) when compared to other competitors ?
*She's a nice person and a good example
* If she had won the gold medal and MK had not been in the competition she would probably be considered a MAJOR national hero in light of the time she won her medal (post 911)
*She consistantly improved from year to year and NEVER spoke ill of any of her competitors.
*What she did at the Olympics was NOT unprecidented, the same exact results happened at Skate Canada.
Please inform me as to why other ladies with considerably less talent than Sarah often are praised to the hilt while Sarah's every mistake or mistep is analyzed to the nth degree.
Please don't get me wrong, I adore Michelle; however, it seems to me that Sarah's biggest failing is that she "took MK's gold away from her" IMHO.
Is Sarah just an easy target that people like to "goof" on???
