Lipinski grew two inches and turned 15 in between seasons. Sandra Bezic choreographed both her short program and her free skating, for which she selected film scores. At the Trophée Lalique, Lipinski finished second to French skater Laetitia Hubert, who hadn’t won a major competition since 1992. After achieving her season’s best with a well-executed triple Lutz, Lipinski finished second at the 1998 U.S. Figure Skating Championships.
In her short program, which she called “the lowest point” of her career, Lipinski failed on a triple flip attempt. Because of a bad Lutz jump, the judges gave her a lower score than in the previous season, as low as 5.3. She claimed that she had performed her jumps, in the same manner, the year before, when she won both the Worlds and the Nationals, and she disagreed with the judges’ evaluations of her jumps. Lipinski did her famous triple loop-triple loop and difficult triple toe loop-half loop-Triple Salchow combination in her free skating program.
U.S. Figure Skating picked Kwan, Lipinski, and Nicole Bobek, who came in the third spot at Nationals, to ship off the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan. With seven triple jumps in total and a triple loop-triple jump combination, Lipinski’s free skating program was the most technically challenging Olympic program to date. Lipinski was granted 5.8s and 5.9s for her specialized and show stamps, and acquired six out of them. Because the free skate was more heavily weighted than the short program, she received nine first-place marks from the judges and won the gold medal. Kwan came in second, and the surprise bronze medal winner was Chinese skater Lu Chen. Lipinski became the sixth woman from the United States to win a gold medal in the Olympics in figure skating.
