Biography

Kitty Carruthers skated with her brother, Peter, throughout her career in pairs, although both had been adopted as young children from the New England Home for Little Wanderers. They were US Champions four times, from 1981-84, after placing at the Senior Nationals in 1980, which qualified them for their first Olympic team. They also competed at four World Championships, highlighted by a bronze medal in 1982, and placed fourth in 1983, fifth in 1981, and seventh in 1980. After the 1984 Winter Olympics, the pair turned professional and skated in ice shows and professional competitions, winning the 1985, 1989, and 1992 Challenge of Champions. After retiring from professional skating in the 1990s, Kitty Carruthers married and like her parents, she and her husband have adopted two children, both boys, and have one daughter of their own. In 1999, she and her brother were inducted into the United States Figure Skating Hall of Fame.
