    Tara and Johnny and Michelle and Olympic Coverage

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/mor...ia-roundtable/

    The article is lengthy, but about halfway through the second page, Julie Stewart-Binks of FoxSports1 had some nice words for Michelle and her insights regarding competing in an Olympic games. A little further on in the article, there is praise for Tara and Johnny's coverage of the skating events.

    Thanks for the post.

    Who has been the most interesting athlete you have interviewed in Sochi and why?

    Stewart-Binks: To be honest, it would have to be Michelle Kwan. She's obviously not competing at these Games, and she's working as an analyst for us at Fox Sports 1 (this is not a plug), but her stories from competing are mind-blowing. She's very honest and open about all the positive and negative experiences she's had with skating, her coaches, falling short of Olympic gold twice, pulling out of the Games in 2006, and growing up in the public eye. I am extremely surprised at how grounded she is. I sometimes forget she's the most decorated figure skater in America's history because it's so easy for us to talk. I can't imagine what it would be like to watch the Ladies free skate with her by my side.
    Michelle's segments for Fox Sports 1 were very professionally done. I wonder how many people saw them. Most are still up on YouTube.

    Here is one with Frank Carroll. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ub2ipyBXaK8

    Very informative! Frank is so candid. And he and Michelle still love each other, clearly.

    I agree all of the segments on Fox Sports 1 are interesting and professionally done. The one with Frank Carroll is the best so far. I love that F C always credits Gracie's prior coach when he talks about her jumps and skating skills. He is such a class act.

    I thought she was fine. She added a lot to the interview because she worked with Frank for such a long time. At least she doesn't speak ungrammatically, like Tara ("be sure to watch Johnny and I," etc.).

    We need to give Johnny Weir a special medal just for his wardrobe.

    That was a long time ago and they have since reconciled. I am sure they are both grateful for what each gave the other.

    Nah, she's perfect. In this segment Michelle is not journalizing (is that what journalists do?) or commentating (what's the difference between commentating and commenting?) -- she is chatting with an old friend. And letting us listen in. Thank you, Michelle.

    For those that like the duo, apparently they'll be doing some commentary for the Oscars!

    A friend of mine is media and covering the red carpet tomorrow. I can't wait until she gets to meet Johnny! (She maintains Kwan should have beaten TLip in 1998, that might be awkward.)
