As a biography Nicole Bobek is an American figure skater born on August 23, 1977 in Chicago Illinois. Bobek began skating at three years old. She placed 4th at the 1992 World Junior Championships. Eight years later she made it to second place at the U.S. Championships. In 1995 she successfully won the U.S. title and placed 3rd at the World Championships. Later in the year Bobek also appeared in Nutcracker on Ice.
Although Nicole was a success on the ice when she was focused, her personal life seemed to interfere. She went through eleven coaches and was coined “figure skating’s answer to Madonna.” On top of her smoking, home invasion charges and excessive jewelry, Bobek just couldn’t seem to pull it together.
Nicole Bobek’s other competitions include the 1997 and 1998 U.S. Championships placing 3rd, the 1998 Winter Olympics, Skate America and the Trophee Lalique. Unfortunately injuries and bad health caused Bobek to end her figure skating career.
Nicole Bobek currently coaches skating on Florida.
