The videotape was grainy. Sometimes, there was no sound, just the image of a little blond pixie moving across the ice blithely on her skates. The tape belonged to Joe Inman, the skating judge, and to him it was priceless. It was a special night indeed when he could invite Brian Boitano, in town for a skating performance, to come over and watch it. Boitano sat transfixed in front of Inman's television set. These performances were nearly twenty-five years old, and other than a snippet here or there, he had never seen them.

She is the Olympic bronze medalist, a two-time world championships medalist, and a five-time U. Lynn began to skate almost as soon as she could walk, and took part in her first exhibition performance at the age of four at Chicago Stadium. By age seven, she was living away from home part of the year, staying with the slightly older skater Kathleen Kranich to be close to her coach Slavka Kohout , who worked out of Rockton, Illinois , but her close-knit family was never far away. Eventually her family moved from the Chicago suburb of Evergreen Park to Rockford, Illinois , some fifteen miles from Rockton and the rink. Janet would attend Lincoln Junior High in Rockford, she used her middle name Lynn instead of Nowicki, which was constantly being misspelled and mispronounced.
