Well, they don't have to be remembered as the most decorated athletes in history! Don't forget that Kwan is most often referred to as "the most decorated athlete in history WHO DIDN'T WIN THE OG"<quoted text>
They may be champions; however , will they ever be refered as the most decorated athelete in history.
Before you reply, I would like you to ponder this query. I understand your nature to berate the champ (Kwan), howewver I just can't wait to see what your rebuttle to this post will be, for me think 'tis benign!
you, know the GOLD she doesn't need to be GOLDEN...the GOLD that doesn't matter to her now that she knows she can't get it..the GOLD that she so wanted that she made the 2006 Olympics all about poor poor wittle Michelle..Tara was the youngest World and Olympic Champion..she also was very young when she creamed Kwan at the Nationals. Sarah was ripped off in so many competitons with Kwan that some of Kwan's medals belong to her and other skaters as well so all her decorations aren't that big of a deal. Even at that when someone hangs on and on and on in pursuit of OG they are bound to pick up a few medals along the way..earned or not...even some of Kwan's fans admit that her many 6's were a bit much for the performance..Yeppers, Kwan is decorated alright! Cruise the net..see how overrated and hyped Kwan is and oh how very arrogant...*2006* gotta get the Gold for the USA..yeah, right! Whine in, splat, whine out! Enter Emily the rightful owner of the spot..nope, she didn't win..but she was ripped off..and for Kwan to have the gall to compare her 2006 petition and 'empathize' with Emily is sickening...the 1994 incident was completely different and Kwan's second place win at NATS was a great big splatfest as well so that stupid comparison is almost as ludicrous as 'Kwan's gracious withdrawal due to her respect for the Olympics'...more like get while the getting is good after soaking up the press and pity.
