    CoP didn't even come into existence until Michelle had about a decade of competing at the senior international level. Furthermore, during this decade, Michelle was also touring ... and, during the "post whack boom", COI would be doing 60+ or 70+ shows per tour in non-Oly years. Michelle, therefore had an unusually large amount of wear and tear on her body, that (IMO) would make it even more difficult for her to change styles than it would be for another skater.

    IMO, the one of the two safest bets on the Kwan/Carroll split is that neither party will ever tell.

    Why does everyone assume that there is anything to tell? It just seemed to me to be a relationship that ran it's course.
