Olympic Flashback #1: Kristi Yamaguchi's "Blue Danube" from Albertville in 1992
The 22nd Winter Games have begun! To celebrate this momentous occasion, I'll be highlighting memorable Olympic moments from some of our favorite champions in Olympiads past. At the 1992 Games in Albertville, Kristi Yamaguchi became the first Asian-American figure skater to strike gold. Her short program to "Blue Danube," a waltz by Johan Strauss, set the tone for the competition and set the stage for Yamaguchi to earn gold in the freeskate.
