We were sitting right in front of Nancy Kerrigan who later complained to commentators that she couldn't see the end of the performance because everyone was standing.
That being said, we were all over six feet tall!
2004 was my one and only (to date) US Nationals. Cyn and I had moved down to the lower section to see the final LP group. Sadly she called Sasha's fall 5 seconds or so before it happened.
Kween's LP was something I'll never forget - all of it, but especially that footwork. At the end the arena just exploded.
ITA. We were sitting right in front of Nancy Kerrigan who later complained to commentators that she couldn't see the end of the performance because everyone was standing. That being said, we were all over six feet tall! I can never forget the look of absolute joy on Michelle's face when she jumped into the final footwork. Unfortunately, the TV cameras were catching her from the back.
This quizz could be summed up in one question : "which year were you born ?" LOLhttps://learn.howstuffworks.com/quiz/generation-x-are-you-a-true-gen-xer
One of the questions on this quiz is who was the most famous female athlete of your youth, and Michelle Kwan is one of the answers ... Along with Mia, Serena, and Mary Lou
This was a special moment. Even of TV or on Youtube now, it's still very effective, I can imagine how amazing it was to see it live. How lucky you are !!!!!I was at the Atlanta nat'ls & had great seats for the womens LP. That footwork at the end was done straight toward me. I had never seen something like that in skating. She was on fire!
One of my happiest memories as a young skating fan was when HeatherW's Kwan compilation tape that I ordered came in the mail. In the pre-YouTube days, that was such a big deal. It didn't have a lot of exhibitions but she had the good taste to include this one:
This still may be my favorite exhibition of hers. I go back and forth between that, Dante's Prayer, or Hands (and I don't even like that song but she and Phillip Mills made magic together with that one).
