This isn't about the HoF induction, but I didn't want to start a new thread. Cute clip of Michelle at the First Lady's fitness event for kids in Iowa (http://www.kwwl.com/story/16787231/first-lady-michelle-obama-comes-to-iowa).

Slightly different clip (http://www.whotv.com/news/who-story-michelle-obama-visti-020812,0,4458866.story?track=rss)

Oksana just posted this article...so cool to know...

Michelle when asked....

7.What is the greatest women's skating performance you ever have seen, live or on live television?

Oksana Baiul at the 1993 World Championships, when she came out of nowhere and lit the world on fire. She was 15, and it was so inspirational that she was able to win worlds at that age, and that motivated me. It was the way she performed. I remember Frank (Carroll, her longtime coach) came back from that worlds and said, “You’ve got to watch this girl.” She was able to make you forget it was a program with elements. It was such a performance, so much fun to watch, so much energy. Even her exhibition program, when she skated to Michael Jackson, I’ve never seen anything like it. I just wanted her to keep on skating.

(NOTE: In 1993, Baiul was the second youngest – to Sonie Henie – world champion in history. A year later, she became second youngest Olympic champion in history. Tara Lipinski then became youngest in both categories when she won the 1997 worlds and 1998 Olympics. Kwan won her first worlds at 15.)
