Tara Lipinski "Having a Blast" in New Olympic "Dream Job"
Seattle Pi - about 3 years
Sixteen years ago, Tara Lipinski was the breakout star of the Winter Olympics after winning the figure skating gold medal at just 15 to become the youngest individual champion in Winter Olympic history. The 411 on the 12 new Winter Olympic events Lipinski and two-time Olympian Johnny Weir have won over fans old and new in Sochi - not only with their insightful, cheeky commentary on NBC Sports Network that has many wondering why they're not the "A team" in prime time, but with their awesomely coordinated wardrobes and wacky off-camera antics as well. Olympic stars to watch Broadcasting and covering the Olympics had always been a "dream job," Lipinski says, but she didn't start pursuing it until several years ago after taking a break following her professional career. Taking advantage of the numerous opportunities for skaters when the sport was at the height of its fame in the '90s, Lipinski turned pro less than two months after her Nagano victory. Lipinski, 31, is the same age as ...

This German Olympic Figure Skater's Hot Pink 'Pink Panther' Catsuit Is Everything (PHOTOS)
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Hot pink was clearly the color of the day Tuesday as the Olympic pairs figure skating competition kicked off in Sochi, Russia, with the short program. As many expected after their sensational skate as key members of the gold medal-winning squad in the team figure skating competition, Russians Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov took the lead with a flawless skate that bested their next closest rivals. Though Germany's Aliona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy trail the Russians by almost five points heading into the final free skate, they still made a lasting impression with their "Pink Panther" program which, naturally, featured the return of one of the most epic catsuits we've ever seen worn in figure skating (as well as an impressive Chief Inspector Dreyfus look). Not to be outdone, NBC commentator Johnny Weir, whose fashions some say have stolen the show from the competing skaters' traditionally flashy on-ice wear, rocked a hot pink jacket that just so happened to match Savchenko ...

Video: Figure skater pays tribute to ‘The Big Lebowski’ in comedy sketch
Houston Chronicle - about 3 years
Tara Lipinski wowed the world as a 15-year-old in 1998 winning a gold medal in figure skating at the Nagano Winter Olympics. Now she is a skating analyst for NBC, and it doesn’t look like she has lost a step on the ice. Lipinski gave a tribute to cult film ‘The Big Lebowski’ by performing a skating routine on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ in an aptly-titled sketch called ‘The Big Lipinski.’ In the video she recreates a memorable sequence from the movie as Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In) by The First Edition plays in the background. Lipinski was copying The Dude’s (played by Jeff Bridges) unkempt look with a bathrobe and sunglasses but is a tad more agile and presentable than he was. Lipinski was born in Philadelphia but moved to Houston in 1993 to focus on figure skating. She resides in the area and will be featured on figure skating broadcasts during the Winter Olympics in Sochi. MORE: Philip Seymour Hoffman looks back at ‘The Big Lebowski’

Tara Lipinski Wins the Gold and Emma Has a Rough Night
Huffington Post - about 3 years
When Tara Lipinski won the gold medal for women's singles figure skating in 1998, I experienced the wake-up call of a lifetime. She was 15. I was 12. My fate met me as I reached up to place a towel on the upper shelf of the linen closet next to the upstairs bathroom. Tara Lipinski was to win a gold medal that night and I was to put away laundry. There was no way that, in three years, I could a) learn to ice skate and b) win a gold medal. Besides, by the next Winter Olympics, I'd be 16: a has-been. My window to be a child prodigy had opened and closed and I still hadn't even found my one true gift. Yes, I was good at spelling. Yes, I was in the "Gifted and Talented" program. But those were Jewish things, expected and unexceptional. Besides, those were fat girl gifts. I wanted to be lighter than air and excellent beyond measure. My moms and I sat down to watch the 1998 Winter Olympics and I felt queasy. I wanted Michelle Kwan to win, desperately. At 17 she seemed more acc ...

Weekend wrap/preview: Colts-Texas, announcer pairings, World Series ratings and highlight DVDs
Houston Chronicle - over 3 years
Let’s start the weekend wrapup/preview with a couple of links to NBC’s online previews of Colts-Texans on Sunday Night Football. Here is some rhetoric from Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth, followed by the studio team of Dan Patrick, Tony Dungy and Rodney Harrison. … Fox engaged in considerable hyperbole when it said the World Series was a “grand slam” with its 8.9 average Nielsen rating. Yes, that was up from the record-low 7.6 for the Giants-Tigers sweep last year, but it’s still one of the five lowest averages ever. Remember when people were wringing their hands over the bad ratings for the Astros-White Sox sweep in 2005? That series rated 11.1. Meanwhile, returning to the grand slam motif, the Red Sox-Cardinals series was a fouled-off bunt for strike three in Houston. The six games averaged just a 5.4 average on KRIV (Channel 26), which rated dead last among the 56 major markets. … Speaking of the World Series, MLB Productions has changed distribution and production partne ...

NRA 'Anti-Gun' List: Boyz II Men, N'Sync, Meryl Streep
Huffington Post - about 4 years
WASHINGTON -- Boy bands from the '90s, Oscar-winning actresses and the PTA are just some of the hundreds of individuals and organizations on the National Rifle Association's recently updated "National Organizations With Anti-Gun Policies" list. As the nation's largest gun lobby assumes a leading role in the national debate over gun control, the list of individuals and groups, which was published by the NRA in September, underscores a persistent message the NRA sends to members: It's us against them. "The following organizations have lent monetary, grassroots or some other type of direct support to anti-gun organizations," it says at the top of the list. "In many instances, these organizations lent their name in support of specific campaigns to pass anti-gun legislation … All have officially endorsed anti-gun positions." The list is published by the gun lobby's political arm, the NRA Institute for Legislative Action, and while the list's purpose is not explained, it app ...

Comment on Planet of the (Little) Apes by Thomas Samaras
Practical Ethics - almost 5 years
While the comments presented here are quite rational, people on other sites have criticized of Liao’s paper and are based on a knee-jerk reaction to new ideas. First of all, we have already implemented size control actions through a food system that subjects the population to excess protein, calories, and various chemicals and toxins. We eat animals that have been fed genetically-modified foods, hormones and antibiotics. In contrast, for most of human existence, we ate simple, basic foods and we didn’t have them everyday. Sometimes we went without eating for days. Professors Popkin, Colin Campbell, Cameron, Burkitt and Rollo have noted that our emphasis on meat, processed foods and calories have led to faster aging and increased chronic diseases in middle and older ages. The problem is that we are blinded by our prejudice favoring taller and bigger people. This favoritism is a threat to human survival because 6 to 9 billion bigger humans consume so many more resources along with pollut ...

    More Details Hide Details
  • 2015
    In December 2015, Lipinski announced her engagement to Todd Kapostasy, a television producer.
    More Details Hide Details GP: Champions Series (Grand Prix) Lipinski is best known for her consistent athletic ability which included a number of difficult jumping passes. She completed a triple loop/triple loop and a triple toe/half loop/triple Salchow. These combinations are very rare to this day. Lipinski's jumps were tight in the air with very fast rotations, and her double Axel technique became very popular among many skaters for years to come. Lipinski has appeared in multiple television series, films and other programms. Other than that, she has had several technical parts. With Shaquille O'Neal and Denzel Washington, Lipinski is a national spokesperson for the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She is also a spokesperson for the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids and the Childhood Leukemia Foundation. Lipinski is also involved with the Office of National Drug Control Policy's anti-drug campaign. Her anti-drug public service announcement aired nationwide on TV and in theaters in 2000.
  • 2014
    In September 2014, Lipinski and Weir were promoted to NBC's primary figure skating broadcasting team with Terry Gannon after more than a decade of Scott Hamilton, Sandra Bezic, and Tom Hammond at the helm.
    More Details Hide Details This promotion meant the B team of NBCSN from the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games will be commentating at every major skating event aired on NBC networks including the Grand Prix of Figure Skating: Skate America and the United States Figure Skating National Championships. Before the promotion, Lipinski, Weir, and Gannon only did the other five Grand Prix events and the Grand Prix Final, while Hamilton, Bezic, and Hammond got the bigger events like the National Championships. NBC has increased Lipinski and Weir's exposure in having them as "fashion and lifestyle experts" for the Kentucky Derby since 2014, and in 2016, the pair was announced as "cultural correspondents" for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games.
  • 2013

  • 2011
    Lipinski made an appearance on The Today Show on March 18, 2011, where she skated to Ben Harper's "Forever".

  • THIRTIES
  • 2001
    For example, reviewers had particularly panned the rap ensemble performed by Lipinski with Kristi Yamaguchi and Katarina Witt in the 2001–02 tour.
    More Details Hide Details She has made several television appearances, which have included guest roles on a number of prime-time shows (Are You Afraid of the Dark? Touched by an Angel, Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, Malcolm in the Middle, Veronica's Closet, Whose Line is it Anyway, Early Edition, 7th Heaven, and Still Standing), as well as a cameo in the theatrical film Vanilla Sky. Lipinski also played a brief supporting role on The Young and the Restless in 1999, starred in the TV movie Ice Angel in 2000, and was cast in the independent film The Metro Chase. Additionally, she has been a celebrity guest on VH-1's The List, Fox's Beach Party, several Nickelodeon productions, and Girls Behaving Badly, and has appeared on numerous magazine covers as well as every major talk show. In 1999, CBS aired a prime-time special, Tara Lipinski: From This Moment On.
  • 2000
    After her surgery in 2000, she stated in interviews that the real reason she had turned professional was that she had originally incurred the injury to her hip in the summer of 1997 and that she had skated the entire Olympic season in terrible pain, contradicting her earlier account of the original injury having occurred in summer 1998 rather than in 1997.
    More Details Hide Details In a 2010 statement on her web site, Lipinski denied that her hip injury was a factor in her decision to retire or that she suffered particular pain during her amateur career beyond "the norm for any athlete". Lipinski participated in rehearsals for a fifth season of the Stars on Ice tour in the fall of 2002 but withdrew from the tour before it began. She had been increasingly unhappy with life on the tour; she felt isolated from the off-ice camaraderie of the older skaters on the tour; and her injuries caused friction with the show's producers and other cast members. She later wrote on her official web site, "It was really hard those last two years of touring for me. Emotionally I was drained and hurt. I have never been treated like that in my whole life." In later interviews, she also expressed frustration with the artistic direction of the show at that time.
    In September 2000, she underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in her hip.
    More Details Hide Details She said her hip problem had been misdiagnosed for several years. Lipinski suffered another hip injury in 2002 during a Stars on Ice show in St. Louis, when she fell hard on her right hip during a jump, and then tore muscles around the bruised area the next day. Many people have pointed to the repetitive stress of practicing the triple loop combinations Lipinski performed during her competitive days as the primary cause of her hip problems. Lipinski herself has issued contradictory statements about the timing, cause, and severity of her injuries.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1999
    Her most notable individual victory came at the 1999 World Professional Figure Skating Championships; at age 17, she became the youngest person to win that event.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1998
    Lipinski's professional skating career was hampered by a series of hip injuries. In August 1998, Lipinski suffered a hip injury in practice for Stars on Ice.
    More Details Hide Details
    In the spring and summer of 1998, Lipinski toured with Champions on Ice.
    More Details Hide Details She then toured with Stars on Ice for four seasons. Lipinski appealed to a younger audience, attracting new fans to what had traditionally been an adult-oriented show. Her signing to Stars on Ice was reported as a coup for the tour, which at that time was doing well, with some performances routinely selling out months in advance. Choreographer Sandra Bezic commented, "Tara reminds us why we're doing this – the idealism, the genuine love of skating. There's a real sweetness there that makes us all go, 'Yeah, I remember' ". Lipinski generally received favorable reviews and was popular with fans, sometimes signing autographs for hours after each show. Lipinski's decision to turn pro coincided with a change in the business climate for the skating industry. After the 1998 Olympics, many of the professional skating competitions that had sprung up in the aftermath of the 1994 Tonya Harding spectacle were converted to a pro-am format or discontinued entirely as audiences lost interest. Lipinski did not want to compete in the new pro-am events, and not long after she turned professional, she broke an existing $1.2 million contract to appear in made-for-TV events sponsored by the USFSA. Instead, she skated only in the remaining all-pro competitions, which were primarily team events such as Ice Wars.
    On April 7, 1998, Lipinski announced her intention to turn professional in an interview with Katie Couric on the Today Show.
    More Details Hide Details She cited a desire to spend more time with her family, to have time for school, and to compete professionally against other Olympic champions. However, given the opportunities available to a newly crowned Olympic champion, Lipinski took on a full schedule of touring, publicity appearances, and acting engagements, albeit that they required constant travel. She was also heavily criticized by some for her decision to retire from competition at such a young age; for example, Christine Brennan, writing in USA Today, compared the pro skating circuit to "joining the circus". However, the criticism aimed at Lipinski was labelled by one commentator as "petty backlash" following her defeat of the expected-winner Kwan at the Nagano Olympics.
    On March 9, 1998, Lipinski announced her decision to withdraw from the 1998 World Figure Skating Championships, citing a serious glandular infection that required her to have two molars extracted, constant fatigue, and possible mononucleosis.
    More Details Hide Details
    At the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Lipinski skated her short program to music from the animated movie Anastasia, placing second to Kwan.
    More Details Hide Details In the long program, Lipinski performed seven triples, including a historic triple loop/triple loop combination and, at the end, a triple toe/half loop/triple Salchow sequence, to overtake Kwan for the gold medal. She became the youngest ladies' Olympic figure skating champion and the youngest individual gold medalist. (In 2014, Yulia Lipnitskaya, six days younger than Lipinski at the time of her Olympic victory, became the youngest Olympic gold medalist in ladies figure skating by winning gold with the Russian team in the team event, not the individual event as Lipinski had.) Lipinski trained at the Detroit Skating Club in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.
    At the 1998 U.S. Nationals, Kwan and Lipinski met again, but after a fall on the triple flip in the short program, Lipinski ended the short program in 4th place with Kwan in 1st place.
    More Details Hide Details Although she landed seven triples in the long program, she finished second overall to Kwan.
    A former competitor in ladies' singles, she is the 1998 Olympic champion, the 1997 World champion, a two-time Champions Series Final champion (1997–1998), and the 1997 U.S. national champion.
    More Details Hide Details She is the youngest person—by 32 days—ever to win a World Figure Skating title, doing so at the age of 14 years, 9 months and 10 days, and the youngest Olympic gold medalist in the individual ladies' singles event, having won in Nagano, Japan, on February 20, 1998, at the age of 15 years, 8 months, and 10 days.
  • 1997
    Lipinski also won the 1997 Champion Series Final, again becoming the youngest female ever to win the title.
    More Details Hide Details She went on to win the World Championships, again becoming the youngest person to win the title. The following season, Lipinski finished second to Michelle Kwan at Skate America and, while suffering from a bad head cold, to Laëtitia Hubert at Trophée Lalique. With Kwan sidelined due to a toe-related stress fracture injury, Lipinski defended her Champion Series Final title (now known as the Grand Prix Final).
    In early 1997, Lipinski unexpectedly won the U.S. Championships and, at 14, became the youngest person to win the title ahead of Sonya Klopfer who won it in 1951 at the age of 15.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1996
    In late 1996, at the U.S. Postal Challenge, Lipinski became the first female skater to land a triple loop/triple loop jump combination, which became her signature element.
    More Details Hide Details
    Later that season, at the senior level, she placed third at the 1996 U.S. Championships and qualified to compete at the senior-level World Championships.
    More Details Hide Details Lipinski was second in her qualifying round to Midori Ito, but fell twice in the short program, barely making the cutoff for the long program. Lipinski rallied to land seven triple jumps, including a triple salchow/triple loop combination, finishing 11th in the long program and 15th overall. Later that year, the International Skating Union voted to raise the minimum age for participating at the World Championships to 15. Lipinski, who was 13 at the time, was grandfathered in and remained eligible for future events, along with other skaters who had already competed at the World Championships before the new age requirement was introduced.
    After a fifth-place finish at the 1996 World Junior Championships, Lipinski changed coaches, joining Richard Callaghan in Detroit.

  • 1995
    By 1995, she was the subject of a great deal of media attention, coined "Tara-Mania" by the media.

    Later that season she placed fourth at the 1995 World Junior Championships and second in the junior level, behind Sydne Vogel, at the 1995 U.S. Championships.
    More Details Hide Details Lipinski was coached by Jeff DiGregorio at the University of Delaware.
  • 1994
    Lipinski first came to national prominence when she won the 1994 U.S. Olympic Festival competition, which at the time was a junior-level competition.
    More Details Hide Details She became the youngest ladies figure skating gold medalist as well as the youngest athlete in any discipline to win gold.
  • 1993
    In 1993, Lipinski and her mother moved back to Delaware, where she had trained before.
    More Details Hide Details She later moved to Detroit, Michigan, to train with Richard Callaghan.
  • 1991
    In 1991, her father's job required the family to move to Sugar Land, Texas.
