Noooooooooooooo this means the Kween won't skate in Sochi !!!

Will they show this on TV? It better be on youtube!!! Yay Kween!!!

I know. :wuzrobbed: Not that I really expected her to be :P , but still there was that last tiny hope. :wuzrobbed:

But, good for Michelle. She has moved on with her life and seems to be doing a very good job at doing so.

I am ecstatic for Michelle (what took so long?), but I feel that Rudy should have been nominated for this year as well. I hope he gets his induction honor within the next few years!

Earlier in the thread it was explained that Michelle participated in an official practice at 2006 Olympics (then withdrew) so USFS had to wait 5 years from that practice to consider Michelle retired.

Rudy was nominated for the US HOF, but did not receive the necessary votes (maybe according to Phil Hersh). He and Kristi were inducted into the San Jose Hall of Fame recently. I hope Rudy will be inducted in Omaha.

Thrilled for Michelle and very happy I will be there to witness it!!

I just watched a montage made and uploaded by USFSA on Youtube about Michelle's skating career and I'm having some chills still. I send out my deepest and happiest congratulations to Michelle hoping to see her skate in any shows, most possibly in Yuna's shows ;)

Michelle You are the inspiration for everyone in and out of skating world, being the absolute awesomeness that you are, I have no doubt that you will definitely have the successful and best career on your current career path. Go Michelle!

Incredibly overdue for Michelle, so naturally hugely thrilled for her. Seems a shame word is Rudy Galindo is griping so much. And a further thought, is a degree of concern that her induction itself will both overwhelm the competition itself and only serve to provide unflattering counterpoint to the lack of a current star of her magnitude. NBC and the media should do their best to highlight the QUALITIES that made her a champion, not just that she was the ideal (ladies champion). The other disciplines, in my opinion, most notably and obviously DANCE are chock full of worthy media attention, but are NOT getting them in favor of the usual, ladies singles is what makes the world go 'round for the average watcher/presumed target demographic.

No, she hasn't forgotten the sport. And it will never forget her.
