Thirty Three Years Ago Today: Katarina Witt's Olympic Gold Medal in Calgary

I just saw a post on Instagram from Katarina Witt commemorating her first Olympic gold medal in Calgary. It's hard to believe that it was 33 years ago today! I was just a baby. Though I didn't watch Katarina's Olympic performances, photos of that event are iconic. The young "Brook Shields" of figure skating stole the hearts of the world. What a beautiful champion of our sport!
