PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Olympic medalist figure skater Michelle Kwan and a grandson of the late U.S. Sen. Claiborne Pell have married in Rhode Island.

The Providence Journal reports (http://bit.ly/VCCver) Kwan and Coast Guard Lt. Clay Pell married at the First Unitarian Church in Providence. About 250 guests attended, including Gov. Lincoln Chafee (CHAY'-fee) and his wife.

Uniformed police officers stood guard outside the church Saturday as the 32-year-old Kwan and her bridesmaid emerged from a club across the street.

Kwan is a public policy envoy with the Department of State and the most decorated figure skater in American history. She won 43 championships, the silver medal at the 1998 Winter Olympics and bronze at the 2002 Games.

Pell works on the national security staff at the White House.
