Olympic Spectator Michelle Kwan "Very Happy" Off the Ice

The Olympics still make Michelle Kwan nervous - for a different reason now.

"I always get nervous watching friends and people that I know skate," Kwan tells TVGuide.com. "I want them to do well, but it's fun and exciting to be in Vancouver as a spectator now. When I was competing, I saw pretty much the village, the rink and the practice rink. Or physical therapy. That was my extent of the Olympics. Now I get to see a whole new side of the Olympics that I missed out on when I was competing."

Kwan, the most decorated American figure skater in history (two Olympic medals, five world championships, nine U.S. championships), is keeping busy off the ice with two endeavors. She's covering the Winter Olympics for Good Morning America, after which she will head back to Tufts University, where she is pursuing a master's degree at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. "I'm missing classes now. That's the thing that's a little nerve-racking. ... But I couldn't pass this up," she says. "Being here for GMA has been a great experience."
