Figure Skater
    (April 20, 1964- )
    Born in Palo Alto, California
    Three-time US National Champion (1982-84)
    World Champion (1983)
    Silver medalist at the Sarajevo Olympics (1984)
    She missed the Olympic gold medal by a tenth of a point.
    She had an expression of dazed disbelief when she accepted the silver medal. (‘I think it was quite a few years before I could say, 'I did win the silver, I didn't lose the gold.’’)
    She hated touring with Disney on Ice: ‘I wanted to skate, but not in a Mickey-Donald-Smurf show.’
    She lent her medals to a local bank and they ended up disappearing when the bank changed ownership.
    In order to make her early morning training sessions, she went to bed at 8 PM and woke up at 4 AM.
    Her coach said, ‘She always had a strong work ethic. In eleven years as a professional skater, she never missed a show, even when she was sick.’
    She last performed in a televised special for breast cancer awareness (2007).
    After 20 years, her missing medals were discovered in a safety deposit box (2004).
