Kathryn Bertine has rarely met a challenge she couldn’t overcome. As Steve Friedman

Wrote in the September 2016 issue of Bicycling featuring Bertine on the cover: “Obstacles that stopped others, she clambered over, or rammed.”. It didn’t matter the sport, the time, or the place. When the Ice Capades urged 18-year-old Bertine to get a college degree before they would hire her as a professional figure skater, she went to Colgate University, where she was recruited to run cross country. When she didn’t get along with the track coach, she earned a spot on the rowing team. When the Ice Capades went out of business, she endured insulting mandatory weigh-ins as a performer for Hollywood on Ice.
