Dorothy Hamill will be a Special Guest and Honorary Referee of the 2017 World Figure & Fancy Skating Championships in Vail, Colorado!
For immediate release - July 12, 2017
For additional information contact, email@example.com
The World Figure Sport Society is thrilled to announce that Dorothy Hamill, Olympic, World, & US Champion will be a "Special Guest & Honorary Referee" of the 2017 World Figure & Fancy Skating Championships, World Junior & World Skating Festival in Vail, Colorado from September 28 - October 1st, 2017!
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.”
