Peggy Fleming Biography:

Peggy Fleming was a world champion in the sport of figure skating. At the age of 17 years, she began earning worldwide attention when she won for the first time a bronze medal in 1965 in the Colarado Springs Tournament and a silver medal the same year in the Rochester North American Championships in the category of ladies’ singles. Next year, she bagged a gold medal in the World Championships at Davos consolidating her position in the first place more firmly. From then on, she had been leading the foremost position in the same sport and there was no looking back for her.

It was a cakewalk for her when she snatched a gold medal again in the North American Championship, Montreal in 1967. The same year, she took the gold medal in the World Championships of Vienna.  She continued to enjoy the monopoly of reaching the topmost position in successive years. It became a regular habit for her to receive gold medals officially in the world class tournaments. She was adorned with gold medal in the World Championships held at Geneva in 1968. She reached the climax of her fame when she was garlanded with a cloth band bearing the gold medal in the Winter Olympics of 1968, Grenoble in France.

After reaching the peak of her career, she performed on the television shows of the game and since 1981, she managed the role of skating commentator for ABC sports. She was acknowledged as the third most famous athlete in America after the Olympic champions Mary Lou Retton and Dorothy Hamill.

Born on July 27, 1948 in San Jose, California she continues to inspire her successors as well as  other contemporary enthusiastic skating aspirants. She was a survivor of breast cancer which did not deter her stealing the limelight in other activities garnering public attention.

A porcelain doll was made in 1988 and sold as a precious collectible by the famous Franklin Mint, USA. Peggy Fleming acted in a movie in a role of judge in Blades of Glory in 2007. An inspiring documentary was prepared on her and aired with the title “Art of the Olympians” which lasted about thirty minutes.

Peggy Fleming Motivational Quotations:

  • “We wanted to be achievers, but being an achiever didn't mean that you stopped being a woman.”

  • “The first thing is to love your sport. Never do it to please someone else. It has to be yours.”

  • “Skating was the vessel into which I could pour my heart and soul.”

    Peggy Fleming

  • “As a young child, I played the violin. I think that that started the spark.”

  • “Giving life to music through skating was something I wanted to be known for.”

  • “I think exercise tests us in so many ways, our skills, our hearts, our ability to bounce back after setbacks. This is the inner beauty of sports and competition, and it can serve us all well as adult athletes.”

  • “My sport taught me what I could do with my talents, whether in the rink or in the rest of my life.”

  • “In 1968, in the midst of the tumultuous 1960s, the Olympics were much more than just another event.”

    Peggy Fleming

  • “When the going got tough, I really had to draw on many of the same competitive instincts I did when I was skating. I really had to put my head down and stay positive. I had to fight.”

  • “I really loved what the guys were doing more than anything, how high they jumped, how effortless it was.”

  • “When I was on the ice, in the lights, with the music and the motion, there was a certain kind of flirtation that gave great energy and expressiveness to my performance.”

  • “I think skating helped me find myself.”

  • “Then came the choreography... the impact of music and choreography tends to really emphasize an overall feeling of what you really want out of the program.”

  • “The world went by, and we didn't get caught up in all the other things, because we didn't have time. We had no spare time. It was always thinking about training and focusing on what we wanted, our goals.”
