Dorothy Hamill won the Olympic Gold Medal in Innsbruck, Austria at the age of 19. Overnight, she became one of those rare champions who transcended her sport and captured the country’s imagination. Still, she has said she is most proud of her World Championship title in Gothenburg, Sweden, which followed her Olympic win. At that time, everyone had advised her to retire from amateur competition, saying that even a second place finish would tarnish the luster of her Olympic gold. Characteristically, once she set her mind to it, she would not be dissuaded, and won.
As a professional, Hamill has skated with many productions, including the Ice Capades and Stars on Ice. Four ABC primetime television specials have been produced in her honor and she has produced and starred in her own touring productions of “Cinderella — Frozen in Time,” “Hansel, Gretel, the Witch and the Cat,” and “Nutcracker on Ice.” She won an Emmy Award for her lead role in “Romeo and Juliet.”
