Lipinski grew up in New Jersey, and began roller-skating before she started kindergarten. She began competing a few years later, ultimately winning the primary girls freestyle at the 1991 United States Roller Skating Championships. She was nine years old at the time. She also began figure skating around this time, and when her family moved to Texas, she moved to Michigan to train. From 1994 to 1995, she racked up multiple podium finishes at various figure skating events, often becoming the youngest figure skater to ever do so. After switching coaches, she became even more of a powerhouse on the ice, and became the youngest person to win the US Championships and the World Championships, in 1997, at age 14. She went on to win the Gold Medal at the 1998 Olympics in Nagano, Japan, and then chose to turn professional almost immediately afterward. She spent the next few years touring, before injuries forced her to take a break. She now serves as a commentator for Universal Sports, and works for various philanthropic groups. She was also one of the main commentators for the 2014 Sochi Olympics games.
