With Olympic figure skating kicking off Thursday evening stateside, and the 2018 Winter Olympics opening ceremony happening Friday morning in PyeongChang, People Now took a look back at some of the most memorable moments in Olympic figure skating history.
The video highlights everything from Tara Lipinski’s history-making 1998 victory at the Nagano Games — where she became the youngest female figure skater to win an individual medal — to the dramatic moment when 24-year-old French skater Surya Bonaly landed a stunning (and illegal) backflip during competition.
The video also covers Dorothy Hamill’s iconic cropped hair cut, the scandalous moment that resulted in Canadian pair Jamie Salé and David Pelletier sharing a spot on the top of the winner’s podium, and the sensual routine that won Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean the gold medal — and sparked some serious romance rumors — on Valentine’s Day in 1984.
