Todd Eldredge inspires figure skaters around the world. From his humble beginnings to his parent’s hockey skate gift to him famously telling his parents that he wants to “jump and spin” in the air, we believe every moment is a reflection figure skaters can relate to in their lives.
His reign as champion led to achievements that every sports fan can appreciate:
- 1996 World Champion
- 6-time U.S. National Champion
- 3 Winter Olympic Appearances
Injuries led to the legend ending an illustrious career. His grace on the ice led to his induction into the U.s. Figure Skating Hall of Fame in 2008. He narrowly missed induction into the World Figure Skating Hall of Fame; he was a nominee in January 2011.
The sport owes a tribute to Eldredge – one of the best of his time.
The Massachusetts native coached in Estero, Florida and has since moved to coaching in Frisco, Texas at the Dr. Pepper StarCenter.
Stars on Ice, a tour, featured Todd following his 2002 retirement and before he formally joined the tour for a six-year stint. The show itself led to countless skaters stepping on the ice for the first time in an effort to “jump and spin” as Todd did for so many years.
Non-profits and the Special Olympics are two of the passions of Eldredge. The professional is also part of the United States Figure Skating Association, alongside a Chevrolet sponsorship, that helps teach basic skills across the country in various clinics.
He continues to raise money for charities and be an ambassador for the sport.
We are here to celebrate the great skater’s accomplishments and contributions to the sport.
