Elvis Stojko (CAN) – 1998 Nagano, Figure Skating, Men's Free Skate

Nagano, JAPAN – 1998 Winter Games, Figure Skating, Men’s Free Skate – Elvis Stojko of Canada pulled a groin muscle in practice in January but kept silent about the injury. It would prevent him from being able to land the quadruple jump. However, his sheer determination and adrenaline would help him finish the Free Skate cleanly. He would place 3rd in the Free Skate and end up winning the Silver Medal. Elvis would aggravate the injury, tearing a groin muscle (you could hear him mumble in the Kiss N Cry, “I tore it”). He would never skate the same after suffering this injury as he would lose the consistency he developed in landing the quadruple jump.
