This is way over the top funny and quintessential Michelle Kwan...she assumes that she will just get her onto the Olympic team...and she forgets that Dara actually won medals..and made the teams fairly...Shelly in Vancouver...how rich and hilarious is that?????????? She is a mediocre skater...shouldn't have taken the Bronze in SLC...lost big time in Nagano and now she is going to bestow herself on the US team again! Guess she still thinks of herself as the USA'S hope for GOLD forgetting that she was beaten by Americans when it really counted and she couldn't be held up (or stay up)...that Dara Torres is a true athlete...Kwan is just a wannabe who takes no risks. Sasha Cohen is the bronze medal winner from SLC but Kwan touts her two time olympic medalist status...gag puke hurl...but LOL!!!!!!!!!! She just has to have her face in the spotlight...or planted on the ice..her decision?????? I don't think so...maybe she hasn't in her own deluded mind closed any doors but you could hear the doors slamming when she crawled out of Torino. She still thinks she is the best...LOL LOL LOL....she never ever was!!!!!!!!!!

She really is stupid and ignorant to even think that she stands a chance of making the Olympic team...she is unbelievably arrogant and blissfully unaware that perhaps there are those who might not WANT to do a Torino so Kwan can do a Dara! What a fool is Mediocre at best..Selfish Shelly Kwan....what an absolute hoot!!!!! How about she skates for YOUR country...???????
Jumping beans...well..those jumping beans stayed on their feet..took huge risks and Sasha won the bronze in SLC...they just gave it Kwan because she couldn't leave w/o something!

I just watched the video of Kwan talking..cameras on her...what a complete and total joke she is....talking about what she would say to the athletes ...train hard and have fun...ummm...I didn't hear her say step on someone else...exercise your little old fingers to petition...the athletes in these games and in Torino DID train..they DID compete...they were handed nothing!!!!!!!!!! Kwan is as PHONY and ARROGANT as ever....train..no, she sat out the season....unless of course it was the Marshalls where she knew she would get big bucks...the judges had nothing nice to say about her lousy performance but with a big family and all..of course she 'won'...she didn't even bother to train for a new program in SLC..just puked up the old one...the British commentators knew that she would be placed 1st out of pity...they also said that she should have been 3rd or 4th...since when does hanging around and hanging around make someone a true athlete....she hung around because she couldn't cut the Olympics...she had to actually compete....nope...we aren't hoping to see her in Vancouver...or anywhere else...traveling the world in a specially created position ....what a JOKE! Mull away Mediocre Michelle...mull away...Dara is a true athlete...you are nothing but a phony wannabe! Training....HA! Jiggle and wiggle and that stupid grin...real athletes train and sacrifice and accept the time when they are old news....and step aside for the love of their sport to make sure that only the best compete. This is absolutely mind boggling...silver in Nagano...timid and afraid...puked up short in SLC and landed on her butt after botching what few jumps she did...graciously accepting accolades after crawling out of Torino where she didn't belong in the first place and now...oooooooooooh....I might just grace Vancouver! I am thinking about it...it's my decision...I can't be denied...I am Michelle Kwan after all....she may have a very rude awakening..even the IOC isn't that STUPID...they were embarrassed enough in Torino but Kwan is absolutely shameless! Dara trained and earned a spot on the team..no pen and paper for her...so ain't now way Kwan has any right whatsoever to compare herself with Dara Torres or speak about true athletes and sportsmanship to ANYONE!!!

You do not realize the wonder and holiness that is Michelle Kwan!!!! Someday you shall realize how wonderful she is and you shall doubt no longer! For Kwan is the Kween!!!!! Dara Torres is a mere jumping bean, incomparable to the awe and beauty of Kwan!!!!

It seems to me there are a lot of jealous people out there. Michelle may not have won the gold (olympic) but she is the most decorated skater in world history. Not just for skating but for the person she is. Not these fly by night one time medal winners that just come and go. Let me see some of your awards or medals. You are all just jealous with not much to do with your life but critisize your peers. What can you do ?

Good old Michelle...thinking about the Olympics again..like the USA is just begging her to come and not win the GOLD again...arrogant much!? Sasha Cohen had the grace and humility to say that 'the silver was a gift' in Torino...Kwan just grabbed Sasha's bronze from SLC without a doubt that it was rightfully hers...NOT...puked up and poorly done short and a fall on the long after major mistakes...but hey...THE KWANSTER has no shame! I highly doubt that she is as great as she thinks she is...mull away oh mediocre michelle..mull away....keep the cameras on you...what a joke is her whatever stupid title she has...I stand by every word I said about this overrated and arrogant selfish woman with the bloated ego!

Well, Kwan is decorated...with medals that were handed to her...she is a person who puts herself first...if there isn't anything in it for her she doesn't bother...loves the cameras and attention...made Torino all about poor wittle michelle...Jealous? Not even a little...what's to be jealous of...and I can do a whole lot...but as far as what I do...that's none of your business...just keep defending this overrated over decorated skater...she needs all the praise and kudos...like the oft quoted line...MICHELLE IS GOLDEN NO MATTER WHAT THE OLYMPIC RESULTS...then why Torino and now starting to try and build up some intrigue again..heck, I hope she does make a run at it...the KWANDRAMA IS PRICELESS....of course she may have to refresh her speeches as they are getting as old as her spiral.....so so simple and accompanied with that big old grin...even the commentators praised Sasha's spiral and other skaters but clueless Kwan bowed all over the place....she just doesn't GET IT! She is not Olympic material...you have to compete there...and train and improve before you go...she didn't deserve the Bronze in SLC and she crawled out of Torino after sniveling to the press....what a pathetic spectacle she made of herself and as a bonus robbed Emily...but hey..that's ME ME ME ME ME ME ME chelle KWAN! Oh and hanging around ice rinks long after the winners have moved on with their lives..go figure she has lots of medals..she hung on and on trying to win at the Olympics...so the fly by nights are the TRUE winners and didn't have to hang on and on and on:)

Sasha Cohen is a two time Olympic loser! Irina Slutskaya is a THREE time Olympic loser! Meanwile although Michelle Kwan has not won a gold medal at The Olympic games she has won more National Championships than Slutskaya or Cohen. She has won more WORLD championships than Kwan or Cohen. Michelle Kwan is a Winner!!!!!

So..I am against Asian people?? Nope, just against arrogant cheats and liars of any race or ethnic group...Kwan epitomizes arrogance and she is so narcissistic that she thinks all America is just waiting with baited breath to see if she goes not to win the GOLD that it isn't all about..wonder if she is really that deluded or just plain wanting the cameras back on her...nope...not prejudiced...she is a 3 time Olympic loser who has no right to even talk about the Olympics....Gold...yeah right...not gonna happen unless it is set up better than her two previous tries when she did do her 'grin and leg in the air' and expect to win because she is after all Michelle Kwan ...and believe me every effort was made to give this mediocre coward the Gold...just couldn't happen with the real skaters. Michelle has all kinds of medals..weak fields and being held up by the judges helped...what an arrogant fool is Shelly the Selfish but she has to have the attention...it's her life's blood! She is a disgrace to Asian Americans...period!!!

Uh, last time I checked the Olympic results, MICHELLE KWAN won the bronze medal in 2002; and Sasha Cohen was in fourth. Check your facts before bashing, Montana!

Well, another fool weighs in on behalf of that loser...the best???? Nope...not even...not now not ever....and as far as the loser comment...that would be Michelle Kwan's title...her one and only legitimate title....she lost the Olympic Gold...TWICE and couldn't even skate in Torino...after she whined and sniveled her way in at the USA's expense..specifically Emily Hughes...oh...the self pitying press conference...drama drama...poor poor wittle Michelle...her groin hurt...and marching in the opening ceremonies for the CAMERAS and my goodness a first class flight really takes a toll on a supposedly Olympic caliber athlete...I have read about true champions and Kwan...she falls so short of that mark...no, I am no jealous of this mediocre wannabe and I have a very very good brain...much better than yours I think...and I can see...falls, splats, errors, and still graciously accepts the gold...but NOT AT THE OLYMPICS.....she couldn't EARN that title and imagine her shock when she actually had to compete...but...she the self proclaimed gift to USFS is mulling a comeback...what a joke!!!!!!!! Nothing to come back from...now the judging calls for real skills...not just a stupid grin and a leg in the air...Sasha beat her in SLC but Kwan had to take home something....so...defend this mediocre wannabe...and get some glasses and oxygen for your own good!

Totally agree! I bet you she won't compete in 2010 winter Olympics because she can no longer perform as well as she did over the last decade. She herself knows that. She just doesn't want to admit it for the sake of commerical interests. Yet, she used to be one of the great ice skaters. I still need to give her this credit.

If I lived in Montana I'd be pissed off too! Awesome that you're into Figure Skating though. It's a beautiful sport and I'm sure it beats wrestling the local natives and shooting bears for shits and giggles. Now take a barbituate of your choice, have a dirty martini and then CHILL THE F--- OUT!
