Tara Lipinski 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki

In June 2017, after two years of dating, Lipinski married sports producer Todd Kapostasy. They met in May 2015, when Lipinski presented Kapostasy an award at the Sports Emmys. Johnny Weir was a “bridesman” and Scott Hamilton was a guest.

Lipinski is Catholic; she has had a devotion to St. Therese of Lisieux since 1994. Lipinski credited St. Therese for her Olympic win in 1998 and the recovery from her hip surgery in 2000.

She wore a necklace with a good-luck charm, given to her by her uncle, that said, “Short, but good”, as well as a medal of St. Therese, given to her by Rev. Vince Kolo, a Catholic priest from Pittsburgh, during the Olympics.

She thanked St. Therese at the kiss and cry after her short program in Nagano, and her coach held a small statue of St. Therese during her long program. Lipinski would also place a statue of the saint on the boards before every competition.

A few months after the Nagano Olympics, she donated her medal and costume to an exhibit.

Ann Rogers-Melnick of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported in 2001 that Lipinski had established a playroom in Saint Therese’s honor in the children’s ward in a Detroit hospital.

Lipinski told Rogers-Melnick that roses, a symbol of St. Therese, had “always appeared at her best and worst moments”.

About her friendship with Weir, Lipinski stated that although their skating careers had not occurred during the same time periods and as a result, they did not know each other well when they began to work together at the Sochi Olympics, they bonded “on air and off air”.

She also said, “It’s like a long-lost soul mate that I met late in life. I can’t imagine my life without him”.

Both Lipinski and Weir told GQ that they would bring dozens of suitcases to the competitions they announced, and would do their best to wear matching clothes and never the same outfit twice.

By the 2018 Olympics, they brought every item of clothing they owned and would “sort it out” at the event. They also reported that they assisted fellow broadcaster Terry Gannon with his on-air fashion choices.

Although her competitive career in the amateur ranks of figure skating was brief, Tara Lipinski filled the record books with her accomplishments.
