Kwan Dominates US Figure Skating Championships - 2002-01-13

Michelle Kwan dominated competition at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships Saturday, to earn her sixth title and a spot on the U.S. Olympic team.

Kwan was awarded perfect (6.0) scores from two of the nine judges for her best free-skate of the season, receiving a standing ovation from the crowd of 18,000 in Los Angeles.

The 21-year-old Kwan, who finished second to Tara Lapinski in the Nagano Olympics, will be joined in Salt Lake City next month by teenagers Sasha Cohen and Sarah Hughes, who took second- and third-place Saturday.
