    modern women-michelle in top 10 of inspired women by modern women article

    Male athletes usually take the spotlight, whether for their sexiness (hello David Beckham!), their out-of-this-world athletic ability (go Michael Jordon!), or their indiscretions (bad Tiger). But, we’ve compiled a list of 10 inspiring, beautiful, record-breaking female athletes that have shown us that girls can do anything guys can do, and sometimes, they can do it even better! We tried to cover all the major sports, and if you think there's another female athlete that deserves to be on the list, we’d love if you left us a comment below!..

    ADMIN EDIT: Just link and quote a paragraph. DO NOT copy and paste an entire article!!!! Thankyou!

    6. Michelle Kwan

    A two-time Olympic medalist, a five-time World champion, and a nine-time U.S. champion, Michelle Kwan has taken the sport of figure skating by storm. She single-handedly brought figure skating to the spotlight, infusing it with the respect it deserved. She is the epitome of a graceful athlete, showing artistry and femininity as she glides skillfully around the ice rink.

    Thanks for posting ... interesting that they didn't mention anything about Michelle's post-competitive career (which, IMO, is part of what makes her so inspirational)

    I kinda expected this. Michelle is an example of a celebrity sportslady who has been untouched by scandal (think: Oksana Baiul, Tonya and Nancy).
