I do not like biographies, yet this book was able to keep my attention.Oksana discusses her life as it relates to various parts of ice skating. This documentary chronicles a journey undertaken by director and journalist Craig Leeson to understand the depth of the issue, and how we can fix it.
I sprinted to the bookstore the day this book was released and snatched up the last copy. But I get the feeling that she just wasn't ready to truly share herself at the time, which makes sense, considering when she wrote it.Sober since August 1998 when she completed rehab, the Russian-born Olympic champion skater is slowly making a comeback.In February 2003, she began training to re-establish herself as a world-class athlete and, in April 2003, she performed in two numbers for a CBS skating special. The only drawback is that you do not learn about the everyday Oksana.You do not learn about any of her other interests (sports done in her training routine do not necessarily count as "fun, relaxing hobbies"), her favorite foods, favorite types of music, or her feelings about having a family or dating.For years, companies have turned to Athlete Speakers to get Oksana Baiul's booking fee, appearance cost, and booking agent contact information. Growing up, Baiul took an interest in ballet, but her grandmother did not think she was thin enough, so she took Baiul to skating lessons.
