TARA LIPINSKITara Lipinski, the internationally acclaimed figure skater who won over the world’s hearts when she earned the gold medal at the 1998 Nagano Olympics – earning her the distinction as the youngest individual Gold Medalist ever in Winter Games history – has applied the same grace, finesse and assiduous character as a role model to empower a whole generation of young girls to achieve any goal they set their minds to. Tara was also recognized as the youngest ever world figure skating champion and United States Champion. In the now 15 years since her Olympic triumph, Lipinski takes the same championship-style approach to her new roles as a TV sports commentator for NBC, NBC Sports and Universal Sports, an actress, a philanthropist and more. In following her love for performance as a popular professional ice skater into these new high-profile jobs, it is clear Lipinski was born to be a performer both on the ice and on the screen.
