I almost voted "yes," but went with "I don't know." My personal feeling is that, as Jenny Kirk noted, Michelle put so much pressure on herself to be an Olympic Champion that it was most likely counter-productive (especially in 2002, I would think, where she may have felt she had something to prove). It's hard to know if Frank's input would have helped her confidence or not. Brian Boitano talked a lot about how he and Linda Leaver spent so much time mentally preparing for the Olympics, psychologically going through a "winning" scenario. He called it the "bubble" that they created and it obviously worked for him. Of course, not every champion prepares with such tactics, but does anyone know if Michelle ever worked that way? She had such a winning record at Nats and Worlds, maybe she didn't feel she needed something like that.
