Skating Greats Share Olympic Memories and Advice for Athletes Heading to Sochi

Originally posted 01/21/2014 09:30AM

Everyone is talking about the 2014 Sochi Olympic figure skaters – past gold medalists included.

Four of America's most celebrated skaters – Apolo Ohno, Kristi Yamaguchi, Scott Hamilton and Dorothy Hamill – glided over to Parade to share their Winter Olympics experiences.

As gold medalists, this group knows what it takes to win, and what to expect once the closing ceremony is over. Transitioning from the top of the podium to normal life isn't easy, but then, neither are triple axels.

Ohno and Hamilton will serve as analysts at Sochi, but they won't be offering life advice like this. Before the Sochi Games start, see what these skating stars have to say, and relive their winning performances.

Fellow Dancing with the Stars Contestants Thought Kellie Pickler Would Win

Originally posted 05/22/2013 10:45AM



While Kellie Pickler says she had no sense she would win the mirror-ball trophy Dancing With the Stars, her fellow contestants said there were clues all along the way that she would be a star on this season's show.

Country singer Pickler, 26, who rose to fame on the fifth season of American Idol, said her ballroom strategy was to focus on being in the moment each week, not on the long-term outcome.

"I just tried to take it one week at a time, one dance at a time," the North Carolina-born Pickler told PEOPLE after her victory, with her partner Derek Hough at her side.

Lisa Vanderpump Blogs: My Dancing with the Stars Partner Is Tough on Me

Lisa Vanderpump is a restaurateur, designer, author, philanthropist and star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She's competing on season 16 of Dancing with the Stars with new pro Gleb Savchenko – and blogging about it on PEOPLE.com

Here we are again ... this time in our third round in the Dancing with the Stars ballroom.

Before the first elimination of the season, my partner Gleb Savchenko and I were around the middle of the leader board but the fan vote was low, which put us in jeopardy. I have a feeling that because The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was airing its final episode and the first part of the reunion at exactly the same hour, we may have lost my fan base.

Kellie Pickler Heats Up the Competition on Dancing with the Stars

It's only the second week of competition but Monday's episode of Dancing with the Stars was tense and emotional. That's because season 16's 12 celebrities are just a day away from the first elimination.

But Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough, the last couple to perform Monday, pulled out all the stops for their contemporary jazz routine, which earned 26 points.

"You are a dancer!" judge Carrie Ann Inaba said. "That was friggin' amazing!"

"Last week was a spark," Len Goodman added. "This week was a fire."

She's just 16. But Disney star Zendaya displayed confidence and grace well beyond her years at Monday's premiere of Dancing with the Stars, leaving her fellow dancers struggling to find enough superlatives to describe her high-scoring performance.

"I mean, oh my gosh," Dorothy Hamill told PEOPLE. "Doesn't matter if she's 16 or 12 or 100. It was just beautiful."

Added Karina Smirnoff, standing with her Super Bowl champ partner Jacoby Jones: "We probably won't be able to do what she did today after 10 weeks! Because that takes years of practice and training."

Hello and welcome to you all!

As you know Dancing with the Stars season 16 starts Monday and I am part of the new cast. I can safely say that the most enjoyable part of the rehearsal process so far – apart from being wrapped around my gorgeous partner Gleb Savchenko for 10 days – is the camaraderie that is shared between everyone on the new season.

Dorothy Hamill is a darling of a woman, whom I have bonded with; boxer Victor Ortiz is hilarious – and basically everybody has so much support for one another. I have seen tears of frustration, outbursts due to nervousness and squeals of laughter as we marvel at this incredible experience we signed up for.
