    WOW!! I was so impressed with the list. These people are great role model for young skaters. Life after skating is very important, can't say enough. Education is the key. I hope the future list gets bigger, e.g. Flatt, Emily Hughes, etc. I was embarrassed when people talked about Bobek or Harding. Thanks for the thread.

    I don't know about rankings, but as someone who did something completely different after skating, Todd Waggoner was a Navy fighter jet pilot and now flies for United Airlines.

    Kristi definitely deserving to be on that list for doing something notable outside of skating ... the Always Dream Foundation:

    Also adding Tara Lipinski to the list for her charitable work which includes national spokesperson for Boys & Girls Clubs of America and the Childhood Leukemia Foundation. She's also involved with the Childrens Circle of Care, the Make A Wish Foundation and supports St. Judes Childrens Research Hospital.
