Dorothy Hamill Booking Agent Details

Dorothy Hamill is an Olympic Gold medalist figure skater. She is the 1976 Olympic champion in ladies' singles and the 1976 World champion. Hamill is credited with developing a new skating move based on her coach's idea — a camel spin that turns into a sit spin, which became known as the "Hamill camel." Created by stylist Yusuke Suga, the bobbed hairstyle that she wore during her Olympic performance started a fad. Her glasses with oversized frames also started a trend in the 1970s. A Dorothy Hamill doll was made in 1977. The media dubbed her "America's sweetheart." In 1993, the Associated Press released results of a national sports study, showing that Hamill was statistically tied for first place with fellow Olympian, Mary Lou Retton as the most popular athlete in America ranking far ahead of other major sports stars such as Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Troy Aikman, Dan Marino, Wayne Gretzky, Joe Montana, Nolan Ryan and 800 other athletes. In February 2013, it was revealed that she will be taking part on the sixteenth season of Dancing with the Stars, partnering with Tristan MacManus. After only two dances, on March 26, 2013 she was forced to withdraw from the competition upon advice from her spine surgeon due to a severe strain on her lower back which was caused during practice. She is also a breast cancer survivor, a sought-after cancer speaker and popular keynote speaker.
