Michelle Kwanby Rachel A. Koestler-Grack
From the day she laced up her first pair of skates, Michelle Kwan knew she belonged on the ice. By the time she was 12, Kwan was already competing with top skaters from around the world; three years later she had earned national and world titles. Kwan made skating history in 1998 at the U.S. Championships when she received 15 perfect scores for presentation in her long and short programs, the most perfect scores ever for a female skater. Michelle Kwan is the story of a gifted young athlete whose determination and focus have enabled her to become one of the most-decorated skaters in U.S. history. Though the only medal ever to elude her was the Olympic gold, Kwan remains a true champion, and she has shown just as much grace in her setbacks as she has on the ice. Her positive attitude has earned her the reputation of figure skating's ultimate class act, and it is sure to inspire readers of this engaging new volume.
