Yesterday I saw a post on another skating Web site that marked the 20th anniversary of Michelle Kwan's debut of her iconic Rachmaninoff short program. I remember watching Michelle's Skate America showdown between Tara Lipinski in the fall of 1997. I was in 8th grade. I cannot believe this was 20 years ago. In all those years, no one has captured the true essence of figure skating and our hearts the way that Michelle did. As much as I miss Michelle's skating, I feel so lucky and honored to have witnessed her greatness.
