OMG, I'm so jealous of the people who get to be there.


To mark the inaugural opening, Kwan will stage two figure-skating performances on December 18 and 19, at 2pm on both days.


To have your picture taken with Michelle Kwan, the first 1000 people who sign up for the Marina Bay Sands Premier Advantage membership between December 11-19 will get a chance to watch her performance and receive one skating voucher.

Exciting news. It's great that Kwan continues to travel, see the world, and skate -- all while working on her Masters!

I see that Tufts posts their graduate theses on their site. Do you think they'll post Kwan's paper when she finishes?

Apparently she skated on synthetic ice. That's gotta be weird - I've heard its very different and requires a lot of getting use to.

Some YouTube vids:

Some interviews. She talks grad school and mentions she's dating someone.

The "article" on Icenetwork is the 1/6 press release I linked to above.
