Biography

David Jenkins was the younger brother of Hayes Alan Jenkins, 1956 Olympic men’s champion. That year, David was third behind his brother and Ronnie Robertson, but in 1957 he took over control of men’s figure skating for himself. He won the U.S., North American and World title in that year, and would keep all three championships through 1959. In 1960 he won the gold medal, as well as defending his U.S. and North American championships, but faltered at the Worlds to finish second. Jenkins trained in Colorado Springs and while there, attended Colorado College. From there he attended Case Western Reserve Medical School and now is a practicing physician, specializing in internal medicine.
