Happy holidays! Hope some of you get to listen to this on your commutes home.
Ms. Ruh is a 2-time Swiss National Champion, star of both SOI and COI, and was twice named one of the “25 most influential people in figure skating” by International Figure Skating Magazine. She astounded crowds worldwide with her gifts in spinning as an amateur skater throughout the 1990s, competing in eight World Championships and on the Junior and Senior Grand Prix Circuits. Her spins influenced how spins were judged when IJS was adopted, and in 2003 she became the World Guinness record holder for the longest spin on ice. She is the author of “Frozen Teardrop: The Tragedy and Triumph of Figure Skating’s Queen of Spin.”
We talk about her fascinating life story, how she was never interested in an Olympic Gold medal, and how she came to wear that iconic gold jumpsuit. The interview lasts 1 hour, 5 minutes, 23 seconds.
Interview is on my website or will be available on the iTunes Store (once the bots find it).
She also sent me two copies of her new book "Frozen Teardrop" to give away, so please enter the contest.
Have a great holiday everyone, and enjoy!
