Just like gymnasts,ice skaters tend to be 5'3" or under. (Ditto with jockeys.) Tara is very pretty on her 5'1" frame,and she's sweet,like petites generally are. She's my favorite skater!

Sweet 5'1" Tara looks a lot like 5'2" Janet Lynn,the dominant ice skater during Cathy Rigby's reign as the dominant gymnast. Janet,though,has battled severe coughing asthma for years. Jan's asthma is "cold induced," just like Cathy's coughing asthma,meaning when Jan and Cathy come down with nasty chest colds,it turns into bronchial asthma. Cathy,though,has much milder coughing asthma than Jan,but they somehow control their coughing "cold induced" asthma pretty well,but Jan,unlike Cathy,suffers severe wheezing with her coughing asthma,while Cathy wheezes lightly with her coughing asthma. The other difference is Jan's asthma is also exercise induced,while Cathy's strikes only when she gets the flu or a nasty chest cold,but Cathy once exercised on a nasty head/chest cold and she stopped coughing.

A sweet 5'1"! She may have been only 4'9" as a skater,making her smaller than my 4'10" girlfriend Joanie,but ice skaters and gymnasts do run tiny.

I read in a book that she was only 4'8! IT was about her and Michelle kwan.

Hi rob i think u should downgrade her to 4'11 or 5'0 not more than that.

She is short. 5'1 is possible but I wouldn't be suprised if she was more 5'0 even but shes not under 5'0 though.

Did she really grow over three inches after 15?

i think she's shorter than 5ft 1. I'm a figure sk8er myself, and 5'6", I've gotten an autograph from her backstage at "Stars on Ice" at the Milwaukee bradly center (LOTS of other people got backstage passes), and man oh man! Was she short or what!
