She is one of the top skaters of her time, and one of the most decorated athletes in Olympic history. Blair competed for the United States in four Olympics, and in her Olympic career won five gold medals and one bronze medal.

Blair has won more medals than any other American in Winter Olympics history. She has smashed world speed skating records and was Sports Illustrated's 1994 Sportsperson of the Year. But to her children, Grant and Blair, she's just "Mom," and that is the way that Bonnie Blair likes it.

Bonnie Blair was born in Cornwall, New York but was raised in Champaign, Illinois. After graduation from Centennial High School in Champaign, she moved to the Milwaukee-area to rain with the United States national speed skating team.

Blair appeared at her first Olympic games in Sarajevo in 1984. She failed to medal but it was clear she would become a force in the future.
She won no medals in 1984, but continued to train hard, and in 1988 won a gold medal in the 500m and bronze in the 1000m. She left skating after the Olympics, turning to cycling, but returned to the faster sport after just a few months. Blair won a world sprint title in 1989, and switched coaches, to Peter Mueller.

Bonnie Blair won the gold in the 500m in the 1992 Winter Olympics, the first time an American woman won gold medals in two consecutive Winter Olympics. She also won the gold in the 1000m. In 1996 she won gold, again, in the 500m and 1000m competitions.
She retired in 1995, after again breaking the 500m world record. Her Olympic success led to many endorsements. Healthy Diet Tv
Blair is the spokeswoman for the coast-to-coast initiative "Millions of Women. One Secret. Let's Talk!", a campaign designed to bring awareness and dialog to a condition millions of women have, yet few talk about: stress urinary incontinence (SUI).
SUI is the accidental leakage of urine due to physical activities such as sneezing, coughing, laughing, lifting or exercising. Not to be confused with an overactive bladder, which makes people feel as if they always have an urgent need to void, SUI only occurs during a physical activity. It affects women of all ages, yet is rarely talked about and often causes acute embarrassment for those who suffer from it. Blair was one of those women.
