I was reading about past Olympic female figure-skating champions and I noticed that Katarina Witt won in 1984 and 1988. So what years did Kristie Yamaguchi and Oksana Baiul win? Nagano was held in 1998. That means Oksana must've won it in 1994. In which year did Kristie win? If Kristie won in 1990, that means there was only a two-year gap between Witt's Olympic win and the next Olympics. If Kristie won in 1992, that means another two-year gap between Olympics. Was the 1984 & 1988 wins of Katarina's incorrect (a typo)? Was there a decision to separate the Summer and Winter Olympics at some point during these years? Maybe I'm wrong and Kristie never won an Olympic Gold medal. What's the story? I'm confused.
