Michelle will defend her Goodwill Games title, as it has been confirmed that she will participate in the 2001 Goodwill Games this year. Figure skating at the Goodwill Games will take place September 5-9 in Brisbane Australia.


Michelle was interviewed during Monday's evening broadcast of the Goodwill Games! Check out Kimberly's transcript of the interview. Also, during the interview, they showed Michelle meeting a koala bear the day before. Check out Karen's screencaptures of the meeting! (Thanks Kimberly and Karen!)
Michelle announced during a short Goodwill Games preview on Tuesday on TNT that she will be skating to Scheherazade for her long program, which she will debut on Saturday.

Also, the starting order for the short program is out. Michelle skates 7th out of 12 skaters. Sasha Cohen goes 4th, Angela Nikodinov 5th, Maria Butyrskaya 8th, and Irina Slutskaya skates last (12th.)


Check out the results of the ladies short program at the Goodwill Games! The costume she wore for East of Eden was one of the practice costumes she wore at Worlds last year, as seen in this picture, as well as this photo, where you can see the back of the costume.
