    Tara posted on her Twitter that it has been thirteen years since her OGM in Nagano, Japan in 1998.

    Congrats! :cheer2:

    :encore: :respec: :cheer:

    And I got to see her today -- in the audience at SOI in Anaheim, CA.

    How I wish she was able to skate in shows still.

    Happy anniversary, baby--got you on my...mind!!!

    Wow, I have no idea how long it's been since I last heard that song. :)

    So it's been 13 years since Tara won her gold, huh? Somehow, it seems like a lifetime ago. I wonder if she takes her gold medal out to a fancy restaurant each year to celebrate? ;)

    Oh! Now all the other tweets make sense!

    @wuzrobbedin98: "13 years later and it still hurts"
    @whywhywhy: "tell me about it @wuzrobbedin98! 17 years for me"
    @fivefoursplit: "28 years here. Still pissed off!"
    @ihatefigures: "32 for me. I still can't look at that silver!"
    @cheatedflutzflook02: "oh get over it already!"


    :p

    I am the same age as Tara, and watching her win the Nagano Olympics is what got me interested in figure skating. So thanks Tara - without you I would never have been a figure skating fan and missed out on so much fun :) Congratulations!

    :) That was my favorite Olympics!! I loved Tara's performance and was so happy that she won. All the medalist did a great job.

    I agree, that was a special competition. My favorite Olympics, too. Can't believe I was but a HS freshman when it happened...

    Well, I received the April issue of the IFS Digital magazine in my inbox the other day and I am allowed to share articles on message boards, blogs, etc. I decided to share here at our wonderful FSU message board! :D

    Oh, and this digital magazine doesn't require Silverlight. Everyone should be able to be view the article. If not, then that's just the way it goes. :p

    Enjoy! Welcome back and Happy Anniversary, Tara! :cool:

    Tara Lipinski Comes Full Circle

    ADMIN EDIT: Apparently there is some question about whether or not IFS articles can be shared here.

    Thanks. So that's what PJ Kwong looks like? She looks almost exactly like this one actress I'm thinking of. From her name, I just assumed she was Asian. Is she married to someone who is Asian perhaps?

    More than a decade and a half? What? PJ's math was a bit off on that one. :lol:

    Okay, I thought perhaps there was a problem with the links I provided to the article about Tara. There wasn't and I don't believe you could be that confused about who PJ Kwong is. At least, I hope you're not.

    In case you are confused, I provided the link to the article from PJ Kwong. A photo of PJ is located to the right of the article.

    Is that purple dress the same one Sarah wore at 2002 Olympics? Or does it just look the same? Its very familiar looking.

    Yes, but it's the exact same photo as the one in the article about Tara. (Actually, my mistake--in the article about Michael Weiss. I skipped ahead a page. :D) Or at least the photo looks the same to me. My question wasn't, "What does Kwong look like?" It was, "Is Kwong married to an Asian? Because she sure doesn't look Asian."

    LOL, if it's the same, then Tara is smaller than Sarah, by a huge margin ! ;)

    IIRC, Jef Billings did Tara's dress as well as Sarah's OLY lp dress, plus MK's Ariane dress. There is a similarity in fabric (color) in all three dresses.
     
    Simone411 and (deleted member) like this.
