is already making enemies on the Dancing with the Stars
set, but according to fellow figure skating champion Peggy Fleming
, this isn’t the first time Nancy has alienated the competition, RadarOnline.com
In her autobiography, The Long Program: Skating Towards Life Victories, Peggy recounts Nancy’s reaction to Oksana Baiul winning the gold over her at the 1994 Olympics. “Nancy went from a grateful competitor to a very ungracious loser,” Peggy wrote.
Peggy criticized the silver-medal winning Nancy for being obviously annoyed by Oksana’s emotional reaction to the major win.
“When Oksana, overcome by emotion, cried tears of joy for a good long time, Nancy’s body language was unmistakably disgusted. As if to say ‘Hey we can shut off the waterworks and just get on with it,’” Peggy observed.
