America's Tara Lipinski became the youngest ever individual gold medalist in the history of the Olympic Winter Games when, at the age of 15, she won the women's figure skating at Nagano in 1998. In the long programme, Lipinski performed seven triples, including a historic triple loop/triple loop combination and, at the very end, a triple toe/half loop/triple salchow sequence, to overtake teammate Michelle Kwan for the gold medal. Lipinski turned professional shortly afterwards and is now a sports commentator for Universal Sports.
