Early Life

Oksana Sergeevna Baiul was born on November 16, 1977, in the Ukraine. She skates in the Olympics. She is the only child of Sergei and Marina Baiul. Oksana’s father left the family when she was very young. She fell in love with ice skating when she was four, and when she was seven, she started winning competitions.

After her grandparents and mother died when she was 13, Oksana Baiul had no one to take care of her. Her skating coach, Galina Zmievskaya, took her in and treated her like a child. Baiul lived with Zmievskaya’s family in Odessa. Zmievskaya told the Chicago Tribune in 1994 that “You have no idea what this girl did to prepare for the Olympics. There was no Zamboni at the rink. I used a hose to clean the ice myself. Never before has an Olympic winner had to train in such bad weather.”

Olympic Champion

Baiul won the World Figure Skating Championships and the Ukrainian National Championships in 1993. She beat Nancy Kerrigan to win the women’s figure skating gold medal at the 1994 Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway. After the Harding-Kerrigan scandal, which got a lot of attention because Tonya Harding’s husband and friends hurt Nancy Kerrigan on purpose, she won a big race.

Baiul was only 16 years old when she won the gold medal at the Lillehammer Olympics. She was only the second youngest figure skater in history to do that, after Sonja Henie, when she did it. (In 1998, Tara Lipinski, who won a gold medal at age 15, would be younger than Baiul.)

Life After the Olympics

After the 1994 Olympics, Oksana Baiul moved to the U.S. so she could skate professionally there. She ended her relationship with her longtime coach and moved to Connecticut. As her drinking problem got worse, things got worse in her personal life. In 1997, she crashed her car because she was using drugs so much. She went to rehab after that. Baiul was charged with DUI because of the accident, but the charges were dropped after she finished an alcohol education program.

Baiul’s autobiography, Oksana, My Own Story, and Secrets of Skating, a look at her sport from the inside, both came out in the same year. Baiul tried something new in 2002 when she released the Oksana Baiul Collection, a line of clothes for skating. She also kept skating, took part in ice shows, and was in the 2007 musical Cold as Ice.

In 2006, Baiul was one of the judges on the TV show Master of Champions. Then, he got a job on The Apprentice (season 13). In 2012, she took her former talent agency, William Morris Endeavor, to court, saying that WME stole some of her money. Even though that suit was thrown away, she tried again with a new one the following year. This time, she said that WME and a few other people stole $170 million from her.
