Peter Carruthers is now married and has two children. He works as a broadcaster for several different skating events. Kitty works as a coach in Houston. While they are no longer a double-bill act, the siblings still have a close relationship and often reunite for special occasions.
They most recently participated in a TV special in 2013, where they skated together again. Kitty and Peter both still love skating, and while they can no longer dazzle audiences with their moves, the pair still appreciates their time on the ice. Even though being a professional ice skating duo can be tough, they both say they truly enjoyed their time on ice.
Scott Hamilton - Now
Many of the figure skaters on this list have made appearances on “Stars on Ice,” but did you know that it was actually Hamilton himself who founded the program? In 1997 he defeated cancer, proving that there's nothing that can stop him.
Hamilton's height has always been an interesting fact about him – he stands at only five-foot-four. This is because of a childhood condition, which has also caused him to have cancer. Since then, Hamilton has founded the CARES initiative, which focuses on cancer research. He's also been an ambassador for the Winter Olympics since 2018.
Kitty and Peter Carruthers
Few American figure skating pairs can boast the same amount of success as this brother-sister team from Massachusetts. Back in 1984, the Carruthers dominated their Soviet opponents when they won the silver medal – despite the fact that Kitty Carruthers was suffering from tendinitis at the time.
When they learned that they had won the silver medal, the brother and sister were so overwhelmed they embraced each other for a full minute as the crowd cheered. While it might be strange to think of a brother and sister working together so much, it's actually relatively common when it comes to figure skating.
While Viktor Petrenko might not have had the incredible career of some of the other performers and athletes on this list, his career is special for one reason: he represented not one but two countries in the Olympics. He represented the Soviet Union before its dissolution.
Once the Union split up, he was able to represent his country of birth, Ukraine. It during his time with the Unified team that he achieved the most success in his career -- in 1992, at Winter Olympics in Albertville, Petrenko took home the gold medal and made his country proud.
Viktor Petrenko - Now
Petrenko has retired from figure skating, but his love for the sport is still obvious to everyone. He still has a deep passion for ice skating and has remained involved with it in a number of ways. The Ukrainian star is now coaching numerous figure skaters, including ones who are already champions in their own rights.
He has even coached a few people you'll find on this list. Some of his most famous students are Oksana Baiul, who won gold two years after Petrenko did, and Johnny Weir, who was a three-time champion. You have to be a true lover of a sport in order to pass it down to the next generation.
