I pray that the peace that passes all understanding will guard her heart and mind in Christ Jesus.
Father put your guardian angels around Michelle to hold her up and keep her safe. That she may skate from her heart and show the God given talent for skating that has belssed many of us.

So group 3 is next, right? I feel SO much more calm today than yesterday.
Only 2 things were making me nervous yesterday:
1. the flip
2. Maria being higher than Michelle

Today is much easier to take. Been there done that. She can't win on her own, so just enjoy the ride I guess.
Skate your way to a LEGENDAY PERFORMANCE! Forget the judges.

April 1st, 2000, 06:07 AM
Did Michelle skate yet ? I was listening to skate radio and I missed the beginning but I thought she was giving the LP results....

Ok..Sarah Hughes is last..she's been skating really well. If she beats Maria and Michelle skates her heart out...well I'll be happy.

amethyst
April 1st, 2000, 06:57 AM
I just copied what I read - she was perfect, FLAWLESS!!!! She got a standing ovation. The problem was probably that she drew first and they had to leave room. I don't know where they get a 5.6 for that performance but I am just happy she skated so well! She looked like she was going to cry... <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON STOP-->

at my aunts house, about to cry...and they'll think I am crazy, but who cares.

I don't care if Michelle gets gold, silver or bronze...she is the shining light, that I will always love and admire....she skated clean, she is happy and we should all be very proud! Michelle is simply the best, wether this competition will prove it or not! My heart just grew about 2x its size because of what I love and appreciate about Michelle...heck, I haven't even seen the skate yet, but WOW...she's awesome!

I hope Dick gives those judges a piece of his mind! He tends to be pro-American and especially pro-Michelle at Worlds! How in the World do you get a 5.6 or 5.7 for that. I know I haven't seen it but a clean Red Violin? 5.8 AT THE LEAST!

I don't understand the standing. What determine Michelle got gold and Irina got silver since both
get 3.6 point?

However I am really happy that Michelle wins.

If SH is 5th, in placement, and she is the last skater, does that mean
our angel is world champ? Some one pinch me. I LOVE LOVE LOVE
LOVE, LOOOOOOVVVVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEEEEEEE Mk.

It is not a matter of win or lose but her determination, her love
of the sports, her respect for self/ sports and others. She
is a deserving champion, regardless of this world medal.

They're about to show the medal ceremony - for those who haven't been following on Eurosport, you really should watch. They more than likely won't televise it. Ok they just showed sour grapes Maria - hmmm well, you reap what you sow. That's all I can say... <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON STOP-->

I am so excited!!! Michelle leaped up when she found out and threw herself in Franks arms. She's smiles from ear to ear!!! <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON STOP-->

Can't wait till tonight. I wonder how Button and Peggy and Terry reacted. How the audience reacted. Everything. If only they would show the whole medal ceremony, it would be perfect. Why don't they ever show it??

YIPPPPEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!! I was soooooooo hoping for this that it's an incredible feeling. Does anyone know if Michelle is doing the Hands program for exhibition??? Or doesn't she always debut a new program at World's exhib.??

Congratulations Michelle on your GOLD medal!!! I couldn't really tell how she skated from Eurosport TV, but when she finished and had that smile on her face, the next screen I saw was the crowd on their feet giving her a standing ovation. Then I knew she must have skated very well. I was praying for her to do the best she could and it looks like she did. I can't wait to see her whole program on TV tonight!

My life is rejuvinated!! She came from third place to win the gold!! What a great day. Both my parents are seriously ill and one is not expected to live long; in the face of a lot of adversity in my life right now, Michelle's wonderful performance (a very true champion, win or lose) gave me joy and hope. I am grateful.

Years ago, I told people that Michelle would be the greatest female figure skater in the world. A lot disagreed with me because they said others can jump better and are more technical. But I don't think they understand you have to look at the whole picture. MK is a true champion - because she is a person of high character, determination, great artistry, and I think, wonderful athletic ability.

CONGRATS MICHELLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OMG!!!! I can't even see the screen now! I wanted to come online earlier, but I was sooo nervous I couldn't do it, instead, I went out and ran a few errands, which took about 2 hours. Soon as I got home I turned on the computer. Still nervous, I checked my emails 1st....3 different boxes, THEN I CAME HERE!!! I took a deep breath and said I only she hope she skated her best and when the screen came up......I SCREAMED...OMGGGGGGGG! SHE DID IT!!!! Michelle is so amazing, I can't wait to see her skate tonight....no recording like I did last night and hanging out! Now I can go out and really enjoy my day!!! CONGRATULATIONS MICHELLE...YOU ARE TRULY THE BEST!!!
