The Olympian: Ukrainian figure skater Oksana Baiul won gold in the 1994 games in Lillehammer. Hard-knock life: Abandoned by dad, mom and grandparents die, grew up under communism, lived through the fall of communism, and some seriously bad big hair/makeup combos. Extra obstacle: Injured right before the Olympic free skate -- but she prevailed. And featuring: Miguel Ferrer! Oksana Baiul as herself! Should it air on Lifetime? It won a Daytime Emmy. Yeah, it's Lifetime material.
