Tara Lapinski abides.

Sixteen years removed from winning a gold medal as a 15-year-old U.S. figure skater at the 1998 Nagano Olympics, Lipinksi is old enough to order a White Russian.

With this memorable skate in Rockefeller Center behind her, Lipinski will in Sochi as a figure skating analyst for NBC.
