Kristi Yamaguchi Wins Dancing With the Stars (Video)
Olympic gold medal skater Kristi Yamaguchi and her dancing partner Mark Ballas took home the coveted mirror-ball trophy on Dancing With the Stars last night on the finale. Kristi's sixth season win made her the second woman to win on the show, the first being soap star Kelly Monaco on the first season.
After finding out that she won Kristi said:
I love it! I guess 'K" is a good initial to have.
Yamaguchi and Mark held nothing back and scored perfect 10's on all three of their dances. This was the first time that a three dance sweep of perfect scores were earned by a team in finale history. Home viewers were with the judges and voted them into the top spot.
Runner-up Jason Taylor and his partner pro dancer Edyta Sliwinska told the host Samantha Harris that "Kristi very much deserves it." Finishing in third place was Cristian de la Fuente and his partner Cheryl Burke.
Congratulations to Kristi and Mark! Check out the video of the winners freestyle dance below.
