Julie Dolan will never forget Grenoble 1968. That’s when figure skater Peggy Fleming won her heart and a gold medal.

To close 2016, we want to celebrate some of our Solid Gold Satellite Sisters. Today, we talk to figure skater/commentator/hair idol Peggy Fleming. ESPN says that Peggy Fleming launched the modern era of figure skating. Listen and you can hear Satellite Sister Julie Dolan hyperventilate as she talks to her idol. Someone get the smelling salts. Peggy Fleming is as gracious with the Satellite Sisters as she could possibly be. And for that, we send her holiday cheer. Of course, we wanted to dish a little bit on some of the skaters– but it’s clear Peggy Fleming does not operate that way, so we stuck to her standards. You’re the best, Peggy Fleming!

Who is your your Olympic hero? Which medalist would you love to have the chance to talk to ?
