When she starts the final footwork sequence and smiles and you know she has it, is when I started standing and crying.

Omg. From the combo spin to the footwork to the Fw-to-triple Lutz to backwards spiral straight to the split falling leaf to that death drop to sit spin to scratch. That’s how you end a program.

I always love that blurred image of the American flag in the background of Michelle's ending pose. :)

Hughes stole an ordinal from her. Kwan probably thought she lost the title after those marks.

It’s like Hughes and Slutskaya went to the same costume designer for their Don Quixote programs.

You can tell hearing Kwan’s ovation wigged her out a bit. That performance was self-conscious.

Has Chris said anything? Did he get sick again for Irina? I think Simon’s commentary is just covering his bases because he has no idea what he’s talking about.

This program is about liberty and free choice and fighting against the tide happening in early 2000s Russia.

Seriously, is this a skating program or just her launching jumps and spinning?

While I wait for Volchkova's music to be done, oh my word it's monotonous.... I was thinking of another Russian skater who landed 3 axels at a GP in the late 90's I believe. Anyone remember her? Ludmilla something

2002 Skate America, Ludmila Nelidina. She complained that she lost to Kwan who stepped in last minute when Hughes dropped out. Then she disappeared.
