I've just opened a thread for the 1994 Olympic and 1993 World Champion. While all the figure skating fans carefully followed Kerrigan v. Harding drama, she grabbed the gold. I remember watching her gold performance and she was so fluffy, so pink and happy. Simply adorable. Upon retirement she performed in shows and professional competitions and struggled with personal problems. It seems she's overcome all the obstacles and now lives a happy life together with her husband and a daughter. She's still very active in numerous shows and her website offers great amount of videos and news. Enjoy :)

Yes Oksana seems very happy now. Good for her. She is still one of my favorite skaters. Wishing her and her family all of the best.
