Boitano ends touring career

April 29, 2001


— Brian Boitano, the 1988 Olympic gold medalist and the mainstay of the Champions on Ice figure skating show for nearly two decades, made his final tour appearance in his hometown area Saturday.

Boitano, who turned pro 13 years ago, did not announce his intention to retire from touring until his last show in the Compaq Center, which is not far from his hometown of Sunnyvale. His parents were on hand for the performance.

Boitano will complete the tour Thursday in Denver.
