Olympic Heroes Then and Now

Peggy Fleming

Now: Fleming retired from competition after Grenoble to skate professionally, and spent 28 years as a skating commentator for ABC. In 1998, 30 years after spinning to gold in France, Fleming was diagnosed with breast cancer. Early detection saved her life. She and her husband launched a line of wines called Victories to raise money for breast cancer research. They have donated over $45,000 since 2004.
