Olympic champion Oksana Baiul reveals, in her own words, the principles, techniques, and philosophy that make up this immensely popular sport. New photography taken especially for the book gives readers an unprecedented, up-close look at how a triple lutz is really completed, how a professional ice show comes together, how a costume is created, and all the rigors and pain of training and Olympic competition. Readers learn first-hand what it takes to excel in the world of competitive figure skating - from coping with injuries to choosing the right music to choreographing a winning number.
