1976 Olympic Champion

Hamill was fourth at the 1972 U.S. National Championships, just missing the Olympic team. She did compete at the World Championships that year, finishing seventh. She was runner-up at the 1973 Nationals, finishing fourth at Worlds. Hamill won the first of her three consecutive National championships in 1974 and took the silver medal at the World Championships behind Christine Errath of East Germany. She was second again at the 1975 World Championships to Dianne de Leeuw of the Netherlands. At the 1976 Olympics, she was second after the compulsory figures, but won both the short and long programs to earn unanimous first place votes from the judges. She went on to capture her only World Championship a month later. Hamill won the World Professional Figure Skating Championship four times, from 1984 to 1987. She later skated for Ice Capades, eventually buying the company in 1993 before selling it in 1995.
