Figure Skater
    (April 6, 1953- )
    Birth name is Janet Lynn Nowicki
    Began skating at age three
    Five time US National Champion (1969, 70, 71, 72, 73)
    Olympic Bronze Medalist (1972)
    World Silver Medalist (1972, 73)
    She could never get the compulsory figures.
    This allowed inferior skaters to be placed above her, despite winning the freeskate.
    She lost the Olympic gold medal to one of the worst freeskaters in the world, Beatrix Schuba of Austria.
    She is a born-again Christian.
    At the 1972 Winter Olympics in Sapporo, Japan, she fell on her ass while doing a sit spin.
    She dropped her Polish surname to avoid American anti-communist sentiment.
    When she fell on her sit spin in Sapporo, she smiled and got back up, endearing her to the audience.
    The Ice Capades paid her $1.5 million per year, making her one of the highest paid women athletes in the country.
    Skate mavens think she was the world's greatest freeskater.
    Her misfortune at the 1972 Winter Olympics was the catalyst to eventually eliminating the boring and expensive compulsories.
    She developed asthma from overtraining.
    Her religious faith helped her overcome her disappointment of not winning at the Olympics or World Championships.
