    Are a lot of young athletes injured in falls? I thought that most of them were injured due to the hip strain caused by certain jumps -- something that crash pads wouldn't help. In that sense, Michelle is (IMHO) a great role model -- "if my body says I can't do it, then I won't, and if I lose, I lose". This attitude, combined with her success at least gives young skaters an alternative to the "I need this 3/3 to win, so I will do it even if it means tearing my hip to shreds" attitude (If, as with Tara, a skater thinks the injury risk is worth it, that is one thing, but this way, young skaters have a choice!)

    Lynn - Thanks so much for that article on MK. Wow, she was offered a role in a broadway play! That could be serious acting and not just a movie about figure skating. What will she actually do after Torino (Turin) is anyone's guess.
