No happy Olympic ending for Michelle Kwan

Michelle KwanThat’s no happy Winter Olympic ending for Michelle Kwan, the 5 time figure skating world champion and 9 time winner of US title.

Probably the best and most popular figure skater in recent era, Michelle Kwan withdrew from the Turin Olympic with a severe groin strain.

At age of 25, this could very well be the last chance for Michelle to grab an Olympic gold medal, the only prestigious event that she haven’t won in her splendid career.

Michelle KwanIt is saddening for many of Michelle’s fans, as they believe that Michelle should deserve a gold medal farewell for the Olympics.

To be realistic however, even without the injury Michelle Kwan is not in the best shape in chasing the gold. She missed the US Olympic trial because of an early injury and was only selected for the team late January after performing in front of a panel.

Sorry for Michelle, that’s life, it’s rarely perfect.
