anne gerli Sad news.

We are deeply saddened to share the news that Anne Gerli, beloved member of the Skating Club of New York for over 80 years, passed away this afternoon at age 91. For generations, Anne was an inspiration to SCNY skaters, competitors and members sharing her time and talents to make our sport successful. Anne was one of the creators of Junior Nationals and also created the Young Internationals program that sent future Olympic skaters including Sarah and Emily Hughes and Evan Lysacek to European non-qualifiers. Last year, in recognition of her contributions to our sport, Anne was inducted into the US Figure Skating Hall of Fame.

Anne continued to be active judging tests and competitions, including Mids this year. Anyone who has been to Governing Council knows Anne. She was the voice of reason and history with an uncanny knack for simplifying the issues with wisdom and a sense of humor.

Anne was always about the skaters, whether they were beginning skaters, developmental or elite or those transitioning to the judging ranks. We were blessed that she was a part of our lives. She will be sorely missed. It is the end of an era, but hopefully Anne will be an inspiration to us all to continue in her footsteps.

There will be a memorial service on Friday, March 11 at 2pm at the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church.


Anne Gerli, US Figure Skating Hall of Fame judge and beloved SCNY member

Finding the right words to introduce and present the newest inductee into the Hall of Fame is no easy task…especially when it is someone of Anne Gerli’s status. But luckily for me, the second I was invited to present this honor tonight, I started hearing from a wide range of people whose lives Anne has touched. Whose lives she has changed for the better. People like Terri Levine, Skating Club of New York’s President; Lucy Brennan, Anne’s global partner in crime; Troy Goldstein, Olympic official; and, of course, Coco Shean, Anne’s daughter, who herself has an illustrious career as a judge spanning over four decades. These conversations only verified what I already knew. Anne is the model for all things GOOD about skating.

ESPN called Anne an “innovator.” How true. For many years Anne observed people trial judging. She watched compulsory figures take 12 hours with different panels for each figure. And it bothered her. She knew there must be a better way to do this. So what did she do? She REVOLUTIONIZED the judging system. Anne created an accelerated program for judges so that former skaters could move into judging positions faster. Her new system encourages skaters to get back into the sport. Her program has produced some of our country’s finest judges, many of whom have represented the U.S. at World Championships and the Olympic Games. Some of the officials she has had a big impact on are here in Greensboro: Shawn Rettstatt, Robbie Rosenbluth.

In all of Anne’s years in skating, no one knows who her favorite skater is! Anne just wants to help people who LOVE to skate. Sometimes they turn out to be the best in the world and sometimes they don’t. It doesn’t matter. What matters to Anne is that the skaters, and the judges she mentors, ALWAYS come first. She was, and is, constantly doing everything she can to make the sport better for the skaters.

Our last two individual Olympic champions, Evan Lysacek and me, are beneficiaries of Anne’s craftsmanship. Anne created the Young International series. One of these events, Anne and Lucy Brennan organized in 1997 in Milan, Italy. Not only did Anne and Lucy organize the event but they came to the event directly from the World Championships in Lausanne, Switzerland. There was no obvious reason for Anne to pick me and Evan. Evan and I were both only 11 years old. This would be our first international. Neither of us won in Milan but, thanks to Anne, the competition gave us the initial taste and experience we would need to succeed in the sport at the highest level.

Anne’s club, the Skating Club of New York, has produced three Olympic gold medalists. Carol Heiss, Dorothy Hamill and me. Sometimes we are referred to as the three H’s. Maybe it is just a coincidence all our names begin with an H, but some of us don’t believe in coincidence. Rather, some of us believe there’s a reason G comes right before H in the alphabet.

It has been a joy for everyone in skating to have Anne in our lives, peppering us with her wisdom and humor. I know some of you here made it to the “150 Years of Skating in New York” Gala and laughed out loud at her witty speech. Moments like that are why we treasure her.

It is my distinct honor to introduce the G that has supported the entire alphabet of skaters on the ice and off for almost seven decades. The U.S. Figure Skating Hall of Fame is more complete and innovative now that Anne is a member. Please help me give a warm welcome to Ms. Anne Gerli.
