After struggling through her practice on Saturday morning, US figure skater Michelle Kwan is considering withdrawing from the Olympic competition if she doesn't feel as though she can perform up to her usual standards. Michelle, who has been struggling with a troublesome groin injury for some time now, complained of stiffness during practice and was unable to perform her usual routines. Right now she thinks it is a result of jet lag and her participation in Friday's opening ceremonies, where she froze her ass off outside for hours. Although, Michelle doesn't rule out the idea that the stiffness could also be a result of her old groin injury acting up. The deadline for withdrawal is Feb. 18th and as of now, Michelle isn't planning on dropping out. During a press conference today Michelle addressed her problems and complications from her injury saying, "It's not something that just vanishes," "Is it coming back? "I really have to pay attention to how I am feeling these days. Dropping out, it's not something I want to do, but I have to listen to what my feelings are." She also added, “Physically if I’m not able to compete I would give up my spot.” I love Michelle Kwan, she is so fab, elegant and classy, not to mention, wears all those great costumes by Vera Wang. I can't wait to watch her compete in what pretty much would be her last chance at the gold medal. I hope her groin and stiffness gets better and that she is able to go out on the ice and kick ass!

i think this will be the first time i disagree with you. I really don't like her at all!

When she lost at the last Olympics I thought she handled it like such a sore sport and I just hated the comentators who were all obviously rooting for her and didn't give Sasha her much deserved props.

I hope Sasha kicks Kwan's bootah!

Kwan will probably drop out once she sees what she's up against and the comentators will praise her as if she's some kind of saint.

First off, I love the fact that you said this was only the FIRST time you didn't agree with me! Love it! that's ok, i like sasha too. I don't remember the last olympics, damn,. was kwan a poor sport? that's a shame. I do remember that sasha fell on her "bootah" a lot though--so hopefully girlfriend will be better this time around, I heard she is. EIther way, I think it would be more fun to watch both of them compete no matter who you like. I actually miss my girl Tara Lapinski from way way back. she was soo good.

Michelle Kwan has never been a sore sport, she has always handled herself with class and dignity. She is an amazing skater -she's got the whole package. And even with her possibly having to withdraw from the olympics- she was so well spoken. If that was me I would have been crying like a baby.

She gave women's skating a good name again after the whole Nancy/Tonya Harding fiasco.

Talk about a sore loser- do you remember Nancy on the 'silver' podium shooting daggers at everyone....not to mention the poor girl couldn't even close her mouth on account of her HUGE teeth.

And a PS to my girl TW- I think the only time I disagreed with you were when we were ordering lunch.

Michelle is gonna come back, kiss ass, and win the gold. End of story.

And you are so perfect Ms. Anonymous? Not everyone wants plastic surgery, some are comfortable with who they are. Obviously, you are not. You sound very jealous of it her class, GOOD LOOKS, her style, - maybe you can learn from her.

I will pray for you.

i must agree with ms. A. i think true class and dignity would have been for MK to bow out of the competition during tryouts for the team. She was injured during tryouts so she didn't compete and she petitioned the commitee to allow her to have her own private tryout 5 or so weeks later. They allowed this (i disagree 100% with that). so she takes someone's spot and goes to the Olympics. Once there she reinjures (she says not but i don't beleive that) herself and pulls herself out. Now yes, they are bringing in someone to take her place, the next in line i pressume but now that poor girl has missed out on the opening ceremonies, training, practice, the fun freebee's, being witht he other Olympians, etc.

Not fair and shame on you MK. You should have done the right thing weeks ago!

Ms. A #2-
Would you have been so quick to bow out of the Olypmics? Possibly the most exciting thing that can happen in a lifetime. And yes, MK has been there before but that doesnt diminish it.
She is an athlete and was probably hoping against hope to skate at the olypmics one last time.

And as far as someone missing out on the fun freebies? Come on now...this isn't the friggin Golden Globes. If an athlete is there for the freebies then they shouldnt be there.

I guess I will have to pray for you too.

interesting that the freebees is all that you pulled from that.

Pray for yourself, it seems you are the one that needs it most.

I wonder if they have an "honorary gold medal" know, how they give honorary oscars to those older actors who never won one but were "legends," and this was a glorified constellation prize? Of course this was a rhetorical question, but even if she is somewhat annoying, I feel bad for her...she went from thinking she won the gold then not getting it, then choking the second time, and now this. You could plot a downward curve all the way to the botton of the chart. But what I want to know is, is there a limit on how many times you can be in the Olympics? I guess she will be almost thirty the next time around, and I know that is practically geriatric for the sport, but I think a true champion would never give up on her dream, no matter how many times she failed.
