Kwan drops out of Turin Olympics with groin injury; Hughes named as replacement


:( I was hoping Kwan would place gold this year. I'm getting the feeling that shes going to retire, but shes only 25. I don't know the specifics so I'm guessing most figure skaters retire before they reach their 30s? I hope she stays and tries one more time at the Vancouver games.

These days in figure skating, Kwan is considered to be old (or at least 'middle aged') at 25.  This sport, more and more, is being dominated by kids in the 18-early 20's range.  Kwan, IMO, was a longshot to make the podium anyway.  She hasn't been in a competitive meet in almost a year.  She didn't even attend the U.S. Nationals (she made the Olympic team because she was given a special pass by the USOC), so there was no guarantee that she would have/should have been in Torino in the first place.  Also, compared to the current crop of top-notch female skaters, Kwan is lagging behind in the technical skills (specifically, the jumps); she just doesn't have the same degree of difficulty and consistency that is now required to be an Olympic champion.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...Barrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr-be-cuuuuuuuuuuuuue

You should sign up to be her personal groin massager. Figure skaters go pro so early. I doubt she'd be back :(

Was watching some of the pairs short program and that Inoue chick landed a triple blah blah ... but what is up with the pants on the women? fuck, I need a HDTV to check the camel toe!!

YEAH :canada: is now tied for 2nd place in medal count! ...edit. NOT. back to 1  :lol:

I doubt she will be still around when 2010 comes. I think she will make more touring as a pro then staying an amateur.

Ironically, the sister of Sarah Hughes (the gold medal winner in Salt Lake City, where Kwan finished second to) is taking Kwan's place on the American team.

Yeah, I kind of feel sorry for Michelle Kwan as well, she was amongst the favourite to win a gold medal in the previous olympics and it's a shame she doesn't get a chance to try for the elusive gold medal one more time...25 is actually consider extremely old for an olympian (in figure skating), if I'm not mistaken, if Slutskaya wins gold, she would be the oldest female figure skater to win gold? (not too sure though).

And I wasn't a big fan of Sarah Hughes...so I'm not a big fan of her sister either...

Michelle Kwan.  I'd hit it.  Figure skating tears up the body though.  I remember listening on the news about banning younger girls in hopes of them not messing up their growing joints and stuff.

Actually, Kwan finished in third place at the 2002 Olympics. She placed second at the 1998 Olympics in Nagano.


And in other (sorta) Olympic-related news...

Oh man, my figure skating picks are goin down the drain.
Michelle Kwan for Ladies
Zhang/Zhang for Pairs

Only one left is Weir for mens. :(
Sasha Cohen is my new pick for ladies, only problem is Slutskaya, but Kimmie might come out of no where.

Plushenko's got the gold already.  And Sandhu with the BEAUTIFUL quad-triple toe combo, but fucks up on the axel and lutz.  What do you mean, you're not nervous?  You're nervous, and that's why you haevn't got a clean short prog this year at all.

Yeah, with some unexpected help too.  Now THAT's the true meaning of Olympic competition.

"History might record it was a Norwegian ski official, following the sport's unwritten tradition by handing Renner a new pole, that prevented Canada's Turin Games from jumping off the track."
