Tara Lipinski Olympics | skater
Lipinski grew two inches and turned 15 in the middle of the season. Sandra Bejic choreographed both her short program and free skating, for which she selected the film score. At the Trophée Lalique, Lipinski finished second behind French skater Laetitia Hubert, who had not won a major since 1992. After achieving her season’s best with a well-executed triple Lutz, Lipinski finished second at the 1998 US Figure Skating Championships.
In her short program, which she called the “lowest point” of her career, Lipinski failed to attempt a triple flip. Due to Lutz’s poor jumps, the judges gave him a lower score than the previous season, a 5.3. She claimed that she had landed her jump the same way as, the year before, when she had won both the World and Nationals, and she disagreed with the judges’ evaluation of her jump. Lipinski performed her famous triple loop-triple loop and the difficult triple toe loop-half loop-triple salchow combination in her free skating program.
US Figure Skating selected Kwan, Lipinski, and Nicole Bobeck, who finished third at nationals, to compete at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan. With a total of seven triple jumps and a triple loop–triple jump combination, Lipinski’s free skating program was the most technically challenging Olympic program to date. Lipinski was given 5.8s and 5.9s for his special and show tickets, and acquired six of them. Because the free skate was more heavy than the short program, she received nine first place finishes from the judges and won the gold medal. Quan came in second, and the surprise bronze medalist was Chinese skater Lu Chen. Lipinski became the sixth woman from the United States to win an Olympic gold medal in figure skating.

She signed an exclusive contract with CBS after the Olympics to perform in non-sanctioned skating competitions and do some acting. Lipinski had hip surgery in 2000 at age 18, which she believes saved her career. He had the option of returning to tour but needed to pull out of the 2000 World Expert title.
