One of the most accomplished speed skaters in Olympic history, Bonnie Blair is a truly legendary female athlete. Blair, who competed for the U.S in four Olympics beginning in Sarajevo in 1984, is a five-time Olympic gold medal winner - the only American woman to accomplish that feat in the winter games. At the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Bonnie Blair set a world record when she won the 500-meter event in 39.10 seconds and then at the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, she captured gold again. Her 1.38-second margin of victory in the 1,000-meter race is most decisive in the history of the event. In March 1994, Bonnie Blair set yet another world record in the 500 meters, becoming the first female to clock the distance in less than 39 seconds (38.99). Of course Bonnie Blair also holds numerous U.S. speed records in the sport, and in 2004 she was inducted into the United States Olympic Hall of Fame.
