dorothy hamill Top 5 Quotes Olympic Gold Medalist Baby Boomer Dorothy Hamill “I was passionate. I found something that I loved. I could be all alone in a big old skating rink and nobody could get near me and I didn’t have to talk to anybody because of my shyness. It was great. I was in my fantasy world.”

“I think I dreamed about competing at the Olympics, maybe hoping to win a gold medal. Not that I ever thought that I would, but I dreamed about it.”

“Follow Your Heart.”

“It’s different today than it was then. In those days we were strictly amateurs. If I had wanted to stay in for the ’80 Olympics, my parents couldn’t have afforded it.”

“Every time you go out on the ice, there are slight flaws. You can always think of something you should have done better. These are the things you must work on.”

~Dorothy Hamill

Dorothy Hamill (born July 26, 1956) At the 1976 Olympics, she won the gold medal for Women’s Figure Skating.

Trivia: She is credited with developing a new skating move; a camel spin that turns into a sit spin, which became known as the “Hamill camel.” The bobbed hairstyle that she wore during her Olympic performance started a fad. A Dorothy Hamill doll was made in 1977. She quickly became known ” America’s Sweetheart.”
