I was watching the tape of worlds 2004 .I laughed again at a man who invaded the ice before Michelle skated.It wasn't the man on the ice that was funny ' it was the two men that came on to try to get him off :lol:What happened after that competition ?
Who was the guy ? why ?And what did Michelle say about it ?

This link answers some of your questions:
http://www.goodcasinos.net/golden_-palace_skating_streaker

Wearing only a tutu and tattoo of the Internet casino website Golden palace across his naked torso, the streaker performed to live audiences of millions both in the stadium and watching coverage televised worldwide. He was shortly overcome by security and led off the rink.
Sources have revealed the identity of the streaker to be Ron Simon, the self-proclaimed "World's Best Drummer".
During brief comments before being led away by security, Simon expressed his jubilation at having performed to millions and his admiration for the sport. "I have real passion for Golden Palace. Golden Palace is soaring to new heights and I wanted to be part of it. And I have the biggest respect for these athletes. This is the hardest sport that I've tried. I took three or so lessons before I learned that I wasn't made for it. I think that figure skating is a bit too serious though. It needs to be funnier."

:rofl: I just can't believe there wasn't any security that saw some shirtless guy with a tutu on charging towards the ice.

And Michelle's bitchface was priceless.

I was there in Dortmund, and it was really scary. He could have done anything. Kwan skated beautifully after that, we all were giving a standing ovation to her.

The security was really invisible. I could have shot Speedy, if I would like to.:P

The thing I always remember about this was that Ando said she thought the organizers had put the guy on deliberately as some kind of "entertainment" for the crowd whilst the next skater (MK) got ready to perform her LP.

Good 'ole dopey Miki :rofl:

If ever a bitchface were justified, that was the time.

What to prevent this from happening again? Anyone sitting in the front row can just jump over onto the ice at any time. Are there security guards on skates at the competition venues now?

I can't believe Kwan took an entire lap around the ice and didn't notice the guy...or did not appear to notice the guy.
It looked like she skated within a few feet of him before she glanced over and got off the ice.

I wonder if Monica Seles was watching and if she thought that it was funny.

It looked to me like she was just "acting normally" until she could get behind him to an exit. I checked my old BOI and International Figure Skating magazines about the incident; apparently, there were no searches or metal detectors for those entering the arena at the beginning. Michelle must have been scared that he had smuggled in a gun or knife or something.

Kwan was probably concentrating hard. She was used to all sorts of cheers when she was on the ice so she probably didn't notice the 'roar' when the streaker came on.

At their closest, Kwan was probably only a few body lengths away from the guy. Kudos to Kwan for having acted so calmly throughout and then skating so beautifully afterwards. Just for that alone she deserved all those 6.0s - and it so happened that it was the last chance to give out 6.0s so the judges didn't hold back.

Not to be mean, but I kept imagining what would happen if it was Cohen who was on the ice. :shhuffle:

From ice skating international


After the event Kwan indicated at first she thought he was a sweeper (flower girl) and then a streaker. Then she said it dawned on her he could have a gun and left the ice.

i was there too!!! and it was the first and only time i saw michelle skate live. (of course, it was also the last time michelle stepped onto the podium at worlds). Gives me goosebumps just thinking that I have managed to watch michelle compete at least once in my life time :)

even though i never liked the tosca programme, i respected michelle even more as an athlete after that programme. she was so cool, calm and collected. i wish i'm like her ... lol

good memories indeed from the 2004 worlds. it was a v. enjoyable world championships.
