    I figure there will be a lot of media coverage in the coming week, so here's a new KWEEN thread, leading off with an article by Bonnie Ford: http://espn.go.com/espnw/olympics/7...et-inducted-us-figure-skating-hall-week-espnw

    I thought the title said something about a Kwan statue. Now that is a good idea!

    Excerpt from an Czisny/pre-Nationals article I posted in the US Ladies thread in the Trash Can last night:

    Really lovely quotes from Ms. Czisny. I hope she is inspired to perform well at these Nationals!

    Congratulations to Michelle for this well-deserved honor. I wonder if she'll continue to remain a public figure or if she'll seek a more behind-the-scenes career once she finishes grad school?

    Michelle finished grad school last year and has her Masters.

    I guess we'll see!

    Part 2 of Hersh's article on Kwan's career. Reading Michelle's answers to these questions about her skating career brings back many memories. Hard to believe that tutu-clad guy on the ice during her FS warmup at Worlds was nearly 8 years ago. :eek: Time does fly.

    Oops! I missed that. I wonder if Michelle is applying for the U.S. Foreign Service? She would be an asset to them but their application process is lengthy. Her background check alone could take more than a year given all of the international traveling she has done.

    No, it's about her stature, meaning her height!

    God, do I miss her skating. Best of luck to Kwanita in whatever she decides to do.
    I haven't even bothered watching Nats today. No stahs. Not like her.

    Does anyone know where I can see the ceremony during the ladies long for Michelle? I'm not an icenetwork subscriber and this seems to be the only place I can find it. I thought i read that they were going to make this available to everyone, but this doesn't seem to be the case. Thanks so much!
