Tai Babilonia



Tai Babilonia, along with her one and only partner Randy Gardner, is a five-time U.S. national champion, a World Championships gold medalist and a two-time Olympian in pairs figure skating.

Tai and Randy rose through the ranks of pair skating, earning a coveted spot on the U.S. Olympic team in 1976 and won the World Championships title in 1979. Heading into the 1980 Olympics, Tai and Randy were heavy favorites to medal but were forced to withdraw due to injury. Because of their tremendous popularity around the world, Tai and Randy’s post-Olympic professional career took them to every corner of the globe, headlining shows, tours and competitions.

Away from the ice, Tai’s story has intrigued the American public for decades, and her life was chronicled in the NBC movie “On Thin Ice: The Tai Babilonia Story.” Tai has authored one book with Randy Gardner, titled “Forever Two as One.” She has also appeared on other television specials, such as “Skating with Celebrities,” and cohosted the talk show “Ken Boxer Live,” produced in Santa Barbara, California.

Forever known as one of America’s great pair skating teams, Tai and Randy’s 50-year partnership has earned them the status of true icons both on and off the ice. Perhaps Tai’s proudest achievement is her role as mom to her son, Scout.

“Getting sober was the absolute smartest decision I have ever made, and I now feel a brightness within me that was lost for a very long time. I’ve worked hard to finally get to this amazing and magical place in my life, and of course, that work never ends. I know how fragile sobriety can be, so I take care of it and protect it with every fiber of my being. Most importantly, I know that with sobriety comes honesty: My days of hiding and lying to family and friends are now behind me, and that feels so damn good. On November 4, 2023, I’ll celebrate 15 years of sobriety. I’m so proud of me!”
