This is Nancy's hometown during a snow storm in the winter.
~ Nancy still appears in numerous advertisements including, Campbell Soup, Walt Disney World, Ray Ban, J.C. Penny, Seiko, and Reebok. This shows how much the world loved her. What I found interesting is that she retired in 1994 and still to this day she is in advertisements.
~ Nancy and her husband, Jerry Solomon, had their first kid, Matthew, in December 1996. "Though Nancy was excited to be a new mother, she also planned to continue skating, and she had to work hard to regain her fitness level" (Edelson 57). It's amazing how fast she recovered. Just four months after giving birth to Matthew, Nancy was back on the ice, performing in the 1997 U.S. Professional Figure Skating Championships held in San Jose, California. She had an amazing work ethic.
When Nancy Kerrigan was little, she described herself as a tomboy. At six years old she became a figure skater. At age nine, Nancy won her first competition at the Boston Open. Nancy has competed in a couple of Olympics, worlds, nationals, and so many more competitions. She has won 13 medals, all ranging from 1st to 3rd place. Now Nancy is married to Jerry Solomon and has three wonderful kids. "Nancy Kerrigan is now able to enjoy her family and her career without the pressure of succeeding in front of millions people" (Edelson 59). She has lived a very accomplished life and was very worthy to receive a biography about her life.
