Kristi Yamaguchi, Captures the “Dancing” Trophy

Olympic figure-skating champion, Kristi Yamaguchi conquers the crown of the 6th Season of the ‘Dancing with the Stars’ Tuesday evening on ABCs hit show. This mirror ball trophy is another addition to her collections, but this time, she got it ... off the ice!

Throughout the past weekly shows, Kristi who was paired to Mark Ballas who also acted as her professorial coach and trainer generally dominated the judges’ (Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tomioli) scoreboard.

Considering the shows history since the First Season, she is the second woman to get the crown. It could be well remembered the first woman champion was the actress Kelly Monaco, preceded by, 98 Degrees singer Drew Lachey, NFL star Emmitt Smith, Olympic speed-skater Apolo Anton Ohno, and the last season’s Indycar-racer Helio Castroneves.

Kristi, 34, a mother of two daughters (Keara and Emma) and a wife to hockey Bret Hedican, said, "This is just the icing on the cake ... I honestly thank all the fans out there ... everyone who's made this a dream experience ... You obviously have to get the technique, but (also) compete with the personalities that all the boys have ... I think their smiles and their personalities melt hearts across the country."

Among the finalists are, soap-actor Christian De La Fuente with Cheryl Burke, and 'NFL-Man of the Year' Jason Taylor with Edyta Sliwinska. More actions and fun can be seen on the videos below.
