Picaboo Street (am I spelling her name right/) was the person with the most votes, but could not attend the event. Michelle had the next amount of votes. That is why she presented the jacket. Perhaps the selection committee saw something in Michelle that they admired and that is why they voted for her. As we all say on here, the OGM is not everything.

A USOC spokesman said skier Picabo Street was chosen to present the jacket after a vote by the Olympic team, but Street is hurt and was unable to make the trip. He said Kwan was the second choice in the balloting.
Tara's mom needs to get over the fact that not everything was about Tara. I am sure the voters were not like "Lets vote for Michelle so we can snub Tara" LOL.

Thanks for posting the articles By the way, as mentioned in the last article, does anyone know what happened between Tara and Richard Callahan? Did they part on bad terms?

Yes, but it still agrees that the decision (by vote or not) was made by the USOC, and has nothing to do with the kwanspiracies people keep making regarding the usfs. Why would the USOC give a rats ass about Tara winning the gpf?

Pat was a stage mother with a megaphone. She had a bad habit of making her opinions known to the press. Most of Tara's unfair media crapolla was the result of Pat Lipinski's big mouth.

someone states michelle skated cautious as to why she didn't win ogm.
that is bogus, due to the fact that these lady skaters skated slow
1) Nancy Kerrigan- she also ur, jumps
2) oskana bauil double footed jumps
3) kristi skated slow
4) sarah skated slow to keep her jumps
5) irina in 2006 skated slow, irina skated kinda of slow in 2002
6) sasha skated slow in 2006 she made exactly same mistakes got silver, michelle would have stayed in 2nd would have won ogm in 2002
7) shizuka skated slow
if you replay the tapes, they probably show skaters skating faster, slower due to fans, and the media does redo the tapes to make winners look better and 2nd, 3rd looked worse.
not to mention when michelle was in asian skaters taking over, michelle didn't skate much in 2002-2006, after 2006 not a peep about asian skaters taking over
that is probably why one of reason we have a hard time accepting the fact in 1998 all the mention skaters did ur, skate slow, trip, fall and they still kept their placment . if michelle mistakes slowness would have won.
not to mention
in all medals michelle has 11 ties for 5th among all world, olympic medalist . got
i am working on the whole list .
jaime and david played around in front of cameras in regard to messing with ogm medal and US Pro Skaters helped with it. if jaime and david would have practice and went to worlds might not have been so bad
