Dorothy Hamill

Shortly after she was born in Chicago, Dorothy Hamill‘s family moved to Greenwich, Connecticut–though once she began skating, she was constantly on the road training and competing. She was a three-time United States National Champion (1974-76) and won the World Championship and Olympic Gold Medal in 1976. She was an inductee of both the U.S. and World Figure Skating Hall of Fame, and a headliner for the Ice Capades for seven years before briefly owning it. She can be seen today as a judge on Skating with Celebrities as well as skating performing in skating exhibitions. Dorothy lives with her daughter Alexandra in Connecticut–and when asked when she plans on stopping skating, she contentedly declares: “never.”
