The Olympian: The figure-skating duo Babilonia and Gardner dominated the US and World championships, but injury kept them from Olympic Gold. Hard-knock life: Pills, booze, weight gain, bad romance and a suicide attempt after the Olympics were taken from her. Extra obstacle: Randy Gardner's groin injury just days before the 1980 Olympics forced the couple to withdraw. He does not respond by drinking and popping pills, but that's why the movie doesn't get named after him, right? And featuring: Christopher Knight! (You know, from the Brady Bunch!) Should it air on Lifetime? Definitely.
