Kristi Yamaguchi Wins DWTS

Mother of 2 and Olympic gold medalist, Kristi Yamaguchi, became the second female Dancing With The Stars winner on Tuesday night.

“This is the icing on the cake,” she stated. “I thank all the fans … and everyone who has made this a dream experience.”

She and dancing partner Mark Ballas scored a perfect 30 for their final dance, the jive. Judges said they were the most “consistent” dancing pair throughout the season.

36 year-old Kristi is married to Bret Hedican, a professional hockey player she met at the 1992 Winter Olympics. The couple have 2 daughters, Keara, 4 1/2, and Emma, 2 1/2. In 1996, Kristi established the Always Dream Foundation for children.

    I didn’t watch the show but I have to say that it’s no big surprise to me that a professional figure skater has turned out to be a fantastic dancer. It seems unfair to me that the others were competing against someone who has “danced” her whole life. Seems a no brainer that she would be the winner.

  6. I’m glad she won. She was definitely the best all along. Very musical and full of grace.

    I think she overcame the club foot LONG ago. She’s a professionally trained ice skater/dancer and she definitely had the upper hand advantage in the competition. Not a fair match at all for the other dancers in my opinion!!
