Yeah! Where is Tonya Harding!? She so should have won. She just wished her opponents all the best "break a leg" she intimated.

so many I could see their faces, even their skating, and couldn't remember the names - total blank.

I think technically the 2018 winner should be listed as OAR, as Russia wasn't allowed to compete as a team.

OAR would be a valid choice as well, but she's still from Russia. Never mind what the "R" stands for ...

Aargh, I tried Vitt instead of Witt. So close and yet so far.

The Olympics, like the Holy Roman Empire, has betrayed all of the principles that it claims to uphold. And, like the HRE, will probably last indefinitely, or at least as long as there is money to be made selling broadcast rights.

I was going to say that I must have, for some reason, been more interested in figure skating from '84-'98, because those are the only ones I got or can even remember hearing of before. But then... looking at the quiz results... it looks like the world was more interested in figure skating those same years.

Surprised to see that Sasha Cohen cannot make the list.
