Jenkins, Hayes Alan

▪ American figure skater
born March 23, 1933, Akron, Ohio, U.S.

      American figure skater who won a gold medal at the 1956 Winter Games in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy.

      Jenkins was known for his precision and strength in the compulsory figures as well as his fluid artistic expression. He and his brother David (Jenkins, David) dominated American figure skating from 1953 until 1960. Hayes Alan was undefeated in major competition for four years, won the U.S. national and world championships from 1953 to 1956, and capped off his amateur career in 1956 with an Olympic gold medal. During the peak years of his skating success, Jenkins completed a degree from Colorado College in Colorado Springs. In 1960 he married Carol Heiss (Heiss, Carol), who earlier in the year had won a gold medal in figure skating at the Olympics in Squaw Valley, Calif. He spent several years touring with Ice Capades and later received a law degree from Harvard University.
