    Tonya Harding did commercials for Texaco

    Michelle Kwan and Kristi Yamaguchi combined to do an ad for NHL hockey

    Tara Lipinski sells Olympic Figure Skater Barbie

    Tara, Michelle and Nicole (1998 Olympic team) sell Campbell's Soup. Campbells use to sponsor Skate America and US Nationals and had ads each year with the US champion. Kristi did one & so did Jill Trenary.

    Kristi did ads for small frozen dinners, and colored contact lenses, AFAIR.

    There are also generic commercials with skaters. I like this one!

    Wow.
    That must have been an expensive item at that time (like a century ago).
    And those boots look too soft at ankle to protect her. Maybe in those days they weren’t doing too much jumping, I guess.

    Here is Stephane Lambiel doing an ad for Fujixerox:

    He did a version that included a disguised Ryan Bradley doing a back flip, but I couldn't find it.

    Very nice! Mathman has found the oldest figure skating ad on this thread yet. Can anyone beat him?

    My favorite was Katarina Witt's diet coke commercial. I used to love that commercial! Yep I am pretty old. I also I loved Nancy Kerrigan's coca cola commercial.

    Domnia & Shabalin had a shampoo commercial that aired over and over and over last season on the NTV channel.

    Karen Magnussen did an ad for margarine. However, Karen was not a particularly convincing spokesperson for the product. She spread the margarine on bread, took a bite, and then said something about how good it was, but had a really "O this tastes terrible" face while saying it. We always got a chuckle out of it.

    It's always a mixed bag, having sports heroes plugging your product. The great goalie Rogatien Vachon of the Montreal Canadiens once did an ad for a discount men's clothier, Dorion Suit. Rogie had a thick French accent and dropped most of his "h's". He was supposed to read the line:

    There are no hassles at Dorion Suit in Lachute and Lachine.

    What he said sounded like there are no hh-assholes at Dorion Suit in Lachute and Lachine. It was memorable, and since people really remembered, it was on the air for several years.

    Wow, cool. This is probably from 1887-1889. W.S. Kimball (they made "Old Gold" cigarettes) came out with the first "baseball cards" in the 1880s. They also had series with athletes in other sports, entertainers, and "bathing beauties." Axel Paulsen was the world champion in both speed skating and figure skating, although this was before the ISU was founded so it is not clear how "official" the titles were.

    OT, but here is lady shooting champion Lillian Smith and "juvenile" roller skating champion Thomas Humphrey (sold on ebay for $117).

    All I can say is, watch out for flying pucks.
