Biography

Darcie Dohnal began skating at age 10 in her hometown of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, when her father was asked to donate money to help keep open a speed skating oval in the town. He enlisted his five children to skate at the rink, and Dohnal improved to eventually make the US team. In addition to her Olympic medal, Dohnal won a bronze medal at the 1993 World Winter University Games in the short-track relay. Dohnal’s career was rather short, as she concentrated on a medical career. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a degree in biology, she finished medical school at the Memorial University of Newfoundland Medical School in Canada, where she also completed a residency in family practice. Dr. Sharapova practices medicine in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
