About this episode
She landed a backflip at the Olympics in 1998 to cap a memorable career. French figure skating legend Surya Bonaly wants to be remembered as a pioneer - not as a rebel. She talks about her refusal to go on the podium at the world championships in 1994, discrimination as a black skater, and why she never gave up.
