  • John Misha Petkevich (* 3. März 1949 in Minneapolis, Minnesota) ist ein ehemaliger US-amerikanischer Eiskunstläufer, der im Einzellauf startete. Im Jahr 1971 wurde Petkevich US-amerikanischer Meister und gewann auch die nordamerikanische Meisterschaft. Er nahm vier Mal an Weltmeisterschaften teil. 1969, 1970 und 1971 wurde er Fünfter und 1972 erreichte er mit dem vierten Platz schließlich seine beste Platzierung. Petkevich nahm an zwei Olympischen Spielen teil, 1968 beendete er sie als Sechster und 1972 als Fünfter. Er wurde trainiert von und Gustave Lussi. Bekannt war er vor allem für seine dynamischen Kürprogramme. Von den meisten anderen Eiskunstläufern seiner Zeit unterschieden ihn vor allem seine freiere musikalische Interpretation und seine athletischere Kostümauswahl, die schnell Nachahmer fanden. Während er 1970 an der Harvard-Universität studierte, rief er die Eisschau „An Evening with Champions“ ins Leben, die Geld für verschiedene Krebsstiftungen sammelte. Petkevich war der Empfänger einer ungewöhnlichen Trophäe. Bei der Weltmeisterschaft 1947 schenkte Ulrich Salchow Richard Button eine seiner eigenen Trophäen, weil er von ihm beeindruckt war und enttäuscht, dass Button nicht gewonnen hatte. Nach den Olympischen Spielen 1972 gab Button diese Trophäe aus denselben Gründen an Petkevich weiter. Petkevich sagte, dass er diese Tradition eines Tages fortsetzen wolle. Nach seiner Karriere promovierte Petkevich in Zellbiologie, später arbeitete er als Investmentbanker. Er kommentierte auch Eiskunstlaufveranstaltungen für NBC, CBS und ESPN. Er ist der Autor eines Standardwerkes über Eiskunstlauf, genannt „Championship Techniques“. (de)
  • John Misha Petkevich (born March 3, 1949 in Minneapolis) is an American former figure skater. He is the 1971 U.S. national champion and North American champion. He placed 6th at the 1968 Winter Olympics and 5th at the 1972 Winter Olympics. His best finish at the World Championships was 4th in 1972; he placed 5th in 1969, 1970, and 1971. In 1972, he won the gold medal at the World University Games. Petkevich was coached by and Gustave Lussi. He was known as a particularly dynamic free skater for his time. His emphasis on freer musical expression and less rigid body lines set him apart from most other men's singles competitors of his era. He has also been credited with innovating fashion for male competitors by wearing a more athletic costume of a jumpsuit and turtleneck sweater rather than the more formal suit-and-tie outfit that was otherwise universal in the 1960s. By the early 1970s, many other skaters had emulated Petkevich's costume style. In 1970, while a student at Harvard University, Petkevich founded An Evening with Champions, a long-running annual ice show that raises money to benefit the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Petkevich was the recipient of an unusual trophy. At the 1947 World Figure Skating Championships, Ulrich Salchow was particularly impressed by Dick Button's skating, and gave him one of his own trophies. Following the 1972 Olympics, Button passed on Salchow's trophy to Petkevich. In 2010, Petkevich passed the trophy to Paul Wylie, keeping alive the meaning of the trophy which is meant to reward a skater for having had a material impact on the sport. Following his competitive career, Petkevich attended University of Oxford as a Rhodes scholar, earning a Ph.D. in cell biology in 1978. He subsequently studied music privately, was a Fellow in the Music Department at Harvard, and was composer-in-residence at Eliot House, Harvard. In 1983, he joined Hambrecht & Quist as a securities analyst following the biotechnology industry. From 1987 to 1989, he pursued healthcare investment banking. In 1989, he joined Robertson Stephens & Co. as Managing Director and served several roles including Head of Healthcare Banking and Head of Investment Banking. In 2008, he founded The Petkevich Group, a boutique advisory firm where he was Chairman and CEO from 1998 to 2005. In 2006, he co-founded along with Dennis McCoy, MD, BladeRock Capital, the General Partner of the V2MTM Life Sciences Fund. The Fund makes contrarian investments in undervalued public companies, which are developing medical breakthrough products that address large, unmet medical needs. In 2014 and 2015, BladeRock Capital was renamed V2M Capital and was reorganized with Petkevich as the sole Chief Investment Officer. Petkevich is on the Board of Trustees of the United States Figure Skating Foundation, serves as its Treasurer and is Chairman of the Investment Committee. Previously, he served on the Board of the San Francisco Opera, on the Advisory Board of the Gladstone Institute, and on the Foundation Board of UCSF. Petkevich is the author of Figure Skating: Championship Techniques (ISBN 0-452-26209-7), one of the standard reference works on figure skating technique. He has also served as a figure skating analyst for NBC, CBS, and ESPN. Petkevich has also composed a Clarinet Quintet, a Piano Trio, A Sonata for Piano and a number of songs in different genre. Most have the compositions have been played in small concerts. (en)
