Tara Lipinski, the internationally acclaimed figure skater who won over the world’s hearts when she earned the gold medal at the 1998 Nagano Olympics – earning her the distinction as the youngest individual Gold Medalist ever in Winter Games history – has applied the same grace, finesse and assiduous character as a role model to empower a whole generation of young girls to achieve any goal they set their minds to. Tara was also recognized as the youngest ever World Figure Skating Champion and United States Champion. In the now 22 years since her Olympic triumph, Lipinski takes the same championship-style approach to her new roles as a TV sports commentator for NBC, NBC Sports and Universal Sports, an actress, a philanthropist and more. In following her love for performance as a popular professional ice skater into these new high-profile jobs, it is clear Lipinski was born to be a performer both on the ice and on the screen.

Today, Tara is NBC’s prime time figure skating TV Analyst, covering events like the World Figure Skating Championships, the Grand Prix of Figure Skating Series, the U.S. Figure Skating National Championships and will cover the 2018 Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. After her huge success at the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia with NBC Sports, she was promoted to the NBC prime time team for the 2018 Olympic Games in South Korea. Aside from figure skating, NBC has enlisted Tara for their live event coverage of the Kentucky Derby, Superbowl XLIX and 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Previous to her role at NBC, Tara attended multiple Olympic Games where she worked with many of the world’s top media outlets and partnered with sponsors, further burnishing her global stature as an iconic Olympian of accomplishment and inspiration.

Tara married longtime boyfriend, Todd Kapostasy, in June 2017 and they reside in Los Angeles, CA.
