Every summer, figure skating legend Evelyn Kramer returns to Lake Placid, NY to coach in Lake Placid's elite summer skating program. Her history with the Olympic village dates back to her days as a young girl, training under renowned coach Gustav Lussi, whose approach inspires Evelyn's coaching technique today.
She's worked with Michelle Kwan, transforming her spinning abilities, Robin Cousins and Peggy Flemming to name a few, coached the cast for the film "The Cutting Edge" and delivers skating seminars internationally. USA Today columnist, Christine Brennan, designated Evelyn as the "Spin Doctor" and the title is now trademarked.
Even with numerous accolades, Evelyn's fondest memories, both on and off the ice, are her days in Lake Placid.
