Trivia

Moira Kelly injured her ankle during shooting, so to make it easier for her between scenes, she was moved around on a porter's truck (the sort of thing usually used to move boxes, etc.).

Christine Hough and Doug Ladret, who play the Russian pairs team, are a figure skating pairs team in real life representing Canada.
Moira Kelly was cast to play the role of Geena Davis' sister Kit in A League of Their Own, however an injury she sustained in this film prevented her from taking the role. Lori Petty was cast instead.
Moira Kelly and D.B. Sweeney made a deal with each other to not do a sequel without the other. They had been offered a script to a possible sequel, but Sweeney said the script was terrible and the money being offered was insultingly low. Since then, a direct-to-DVD sequel and two TV-movie sequels have been made without their involvement.

Some of the commentators and reporters were actual U.S. figure skating stars. Judy Blumberg (one of the Nationals and Olympic commentators) was a US ice dance champ and Olympic medalist, JoJo Starbuck, the blonde interviewer who is at rinkside when Kate and Doug come off the ice after their Olympic short program, was a US pairs champion in the early 1970s, and Robin Cousins (Nationals commentator, who also choreographed the skating programs) was a men's Olympic and World champion from Britain. (For some reason the filmmakers chose to dub over his English accent with an American voice.)
The interaction of Kate & Doug in the film has some resemblance to that of Kate & Petruchio in William Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew and Beatrice & Benedick in Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing.
