U.S. Figure Skating is celebrating its centennial anniversary in 2021. In the August-September issue of SKATING magazine, we look back at those skaters and moments which made the 1980s memorable. The “Battle of the Brians,” the “Battle of the Carmens,” Scott Hamilton, Rosalynn Sumners, Jill Trenary and Elaine Zayak were just a few of the greats who grabbed the headlines and left us cheering for more. We also continue to honor “100 contributors” — 10 in each issue of 2021 — who have dedicated their time, talents and passion at the grassroots level to make the sport fun and fulfilling for others. The 10 people featured in the August-September issue are Vera Wang, Karen Boswell, Beth Campbell, Mary Kate Dehm, Honor Johnson, Elaine Livingston, Sandra Loflin, Thomasa “Tommie” Palladino, Doris Papenfuss and Tim Rinkel.
