Olympian & Author Gary Visconti visits Chevalier’s

Chevalier’s is pleased to welcome US Olympian and figure skating Hall-of-Famer Gary Visconti, who will be signing his new book Falling for the Win on Sunday, January 10th, from 4:00-5:30pm.

085.JPGFrom the unlikely origins of Detroit’s lower end all the way through a Cold War era played out on the ice fields of the world, two-time U.S. Champion, North American Champion, Olympian, and World Professional Champion Gary Visconti became a national skating treasure and a Hall of Fame coach, helping to advance the careers of such iconic skaters as Scott Hamilton, Dorothy Hamil, Rudy Galindo and many, many others.

Within the pages of Falling for the Win, readers will not only be entertained and amused by the many recollections of this little Italian American hero but they will be challenged, personally, to examine their own inspirations, and challenges, shortcomings and inner strengths, as Gary had to do to rise above and overcome the many obstacles that stood in the way of his rise to fame and success.

Stop by the store to meet this renowned Olympian and pick up his inspiring book!
