Couldn't have put it better. Interesting how she's carried on her mother's tradition of giving her children Anglo first names but Japanese middle names, as a way of honoring their heritage in a Western nation.

Kristi's been such a great representative for the sport for 20 years. Congrats to her!

What a great article! Kristi has always been such a classy woman. It would be great to see her daughter follow in her footsteps. Time will tell.

There's a 40 year old not needing botox any time soon. What a lucky lady and a very nice one too.

i can't believe it's been 20 years and she doesn't look much older than when she won.

Such a good memory to me. I watched it live, and was so impressed by the ladies that night (not that it was perfect, but by the attempted difficulties : so impressive).
Kristi is one of the best ever, and a real role model.

Really like Kristi. Remember seeing her at Olympics growing up and was one of the 1st Asian ethnic faces that made a huge impression. Then of course Michelle followed her!!

I enjoyed watching her overcoming her shyness on Dances with the stars few years ago, thought she's amazing and so impressive and professional. When the music comes on, she is a different woman. You can tell she is a great champion.

I even had better luck. As team leader for the US I was my fortune to stand by the rail and see that fabulous performance. Yes, I cried.

Kristy remains as a wonderful memory and a continuing beacon for the all skaters to emulate.
