Dorothy Hamill, 1976 Olympic ladies figure skating champion and hairstyle icon, was feted the other night at an event for the Figure Skating in Harlem organization. It was recently announced that Hamill is being treated for breast cancer, and she said she was doing "great" at the tribute at Wollman Rink in Central Park. We wish her well in her treatment and recovery.
The event was a who's who of skating stars:
Sasha Cohen, Sarah Hughes, Kimmie Meissner, Viktor Petrenko and Johnny Weir were among the skating stars of the past and present who attended the event, for which Donald Trump served as a host. Two-time U.S. men’s champion Evan Lysacek performed a tribute to Hamill.
That's good news about Lysacek - he must be doing better if he performed at the tribute.
