  1. I noticed that Michelle gave Lulu a hug right at the start of this clip. Were they friends?

  2. Kwan didn't even look at Lipinski, but Kwan claims they are friends?

  3. Kwan and Lulu were friendly. The toured together, Lulu worked with Frank for a bit when MK was there, and they competed at many competitions with each other.

  4. Look how she was smiling at the start. She always skated so well when there wasnt pressure. She only had to come in 2nd with Lipinski in 4th from the Short program fall. She really just needed to get thru it. Even if she fell a few times she would have placed. I wish she could have competed when there was pressure. She was so close! After the 98 and 2002 Olympics she said it was just a color and it didnt matter but in the video you can tell how badly she wanted an Olympic Gold..she dreamt of it since 5! Makes me feel so bad. :(

  6. I noticed there is something different now in the way she speaks, did she take speach lessons? there seems to be a lisp or something...or my hearing is off

  7. Kwan just has a So. California accent. My cousins from that area sound the same.

  8. @10:36 A lot of people dream of Olympic gold and don't get it. I don't feel bad for Michelle. She had a wonderful career and became a legend, and is now moving on with a different career. An Olympic gold is just a medal. In 98 she skated well but in 2002 she blew it herself.
