Michelle Kwan withdraws from the Olympics. I'm really sad to see this because even though I knew she was a long-shot for gold, I wanted to see her get her last shot. She's an amazing role model, a class-act, and I really admire people who keep on trying, even when others have written them off. I wish she'd ended her career on a more positive note, but what she's done today is emblematic of the kind of person she is -- putting aside her dream to do what's best for the country, and in the process, giving Emily Hughes a chance at the Olympics.
Mikee Celizic puts it beautifully over here.
