1992 Framed and Matted Kristi Yamaguchi Olympic Gold Medalist Signed Figure Skater Photo 18 x 22

The perfect inspiration for young Olympic hopefuls who Always Dream!

This is an authentic 1992 photo of Kristi Yamaguchi in her iconic deep turquoise blue skating dress from her 1992 short program.   At the 1992 Olympics there was no doubt that the judges liked Yamaguchi, the reigning world champion.  Wearing this ice-blue dress and skating to "The Blue Danube Waltz", she was first according to all nine judges.  On a scale of 6.0, she received seven 5.9's for artistic impression.

This professionally framed photo is from a local photographer Garibaldi Studios in San Lorenzo, California a town about 15 miles from Fremont, Kristi's hometown at the time.  The framing job has glass and the matte is signed by the photographer Garibaldi.  The dark teal frame measures 18 by 22 inches and holds a 11 by 14 inch photograph signed with Kristi's autograph.  I have included a photo of the skates Kristi wore at the Olympics which are on display at the Museum of American History to show her signature at that time included the flower she has added to this photo.  Although not authenticated by a third party, the provenance of this photograph is proven by the photography studio's stamp on the back of the mount and the local photographer's signature, there should be no doubt this is an authentic Kristi Yamaguchi signature and I am confident it will pass any certification.  Kristi and her family still live about 10 miles from where this photograph was purchased.

Kristine Tsuya Yamaguchi is an American former figure skater.  In ladies' singles, Yamaguchi is the 1992 Olympic champion, a two-time World champion (1991 and 1992), and the 1992 U.S. champion.  As a pairs skater with Rudy Galindo, she is the 1988 World Junior champion and a two-time national champion (1989 and 1990).  In December 2005, she was inducted into the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame.
