Phil Hersh, often excoriated as a grumpy old fellow with nothing good to say about skaters, has written what is a hymn of praise to the 1988 Olympics (now exactly 25 years past) in general, and to the life, career, and 1988 performances of Boitano, in particular.
It's a pleasant read for Boitano fans, and for fans of the 1988 Olympics (still my own all-time favorite Olympics).
Hersh names his top Olympic performances of all time in each discipline. You may want to see whether his list matches yours Hint-Boitano is the only American in that list. He also names a runnerup to Boitano; he is not American either.
