Michelle's 1998 Nationals short program to the music of Rachmaninoff, in which she earned 8 perfect scores of 6.0 for presentation is a signature piece for the 9-time National Champion. Michelle's skating is full of ease and joy. It's graceful and delicate yet powerful and controlled. This performance is pure, majestic, and infused with heart. I remember watching this on television when I was in 8th grade and being moved to tears. Truly transcendent!!
Thank you for giving us this beautiful, memory, Michelle!
