An interview with John Misha Petkevich, the 1971 US National Figure Skating Champion, two-time Olympian, USFS Hall of Fame member, author of two skating books ("Figure Skating: Champion Techniques" and "The Skater's Handbook"), and the creator of the fantastic Harvard-run show "An Evening With Champions." He was also a commentator for NBC, CBS and ESPN. And if that wasn't enough, after graduating from Harvard he attended Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar where he was awarded a Doctorate in Cell Biology, and went on to become a successful investment banker. We discuss his massive jumps, how he liberated mens' costuming from the "monkey suit," his opinion on the demise of compulsory figures, and his proudest moment in his skating career. 1 hour, 20 minutes, 50 seconds.
