Hayes Alan Jenkins

He began at the age of nine and in 22 years of competitive skating, captured almost every title available. AT age 19 he captured his first world championship in 1953 in Switzerland, and followed that with the North American, U.S. and world titles for three more years, including an Olympic gold medal in 1956. He shunned professionalism and chose a career in law. In 1960, he married Carol Heiss, an Olympic and national skating champion.
