Synopsis : Full-color photos throughout Here is the real-life fairy-tale story of figure skating superstar Oksana Baiul, the sixteen-year-old Ukrainian orphan who stole the spotlight, the gold medal, and the hearts of millions at the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway. Oksana, who overcame unbelievable tragedies and obstacles to achieve her dream, has fans of all ages and is a true heroine and role model for young girls. Between her numerous skating show tours, competitions, and television appearances, Oksana trains in Simsbury, Connecticut for the 1998 Olympics. Told by Oksana herself and filled with exquisite photographs--many of them never before seen-- Oksana: My Own Story reveals both the fantasy princess and the very real teenager to readers for the first time.
Note de l'éditeur:
"There are pictures of Oksana and her family on almost every page which gives kids an idea of her lifestyle. The descriptions made me feel like I was in her skates ... Whether or not you are an Olympic fan, you will enjoy this book. I recommend it for all ages ..."
