Video | Michelle Kwan on U.S. figure skating's present and future
Posted by Stephanie Clary
Thanks to a red-carpet spot at Club Bud in downtown Vancouver, my experience as an inexperienced figure skating interviewer has come full circle.
Two-time Olympic medalist Michelle Kwan talked to us on her way into the Budweiser/Under Armour party Friday night. In the video below, she explains her favorite moments of the 2010 Winter Games as well as the future of U.S. figure skating.
More than 10 years ago, I met Kwan during a Champions on Ice performance in Seattle after my parents somehow got me backstage access. I'm not sure I could even form a question during our private meeting, so this was an unexpected opportunity to fully recover from my embarrassing tween moment.
