    I feel horrible that I don't remember him. I remember other skaters of that time, but I don't remember him. I feel terrible. I hope he rests in peace.

    I saw a picture of him from 2005 in our paper today and was shocked. He was 300 pounds when he died. I hardly recognized him.

    One of the things I remember about him is that he had a really turbulent relationship with his coach.

    I just watched his 1991 US Nationals and 1992 Olympic long programs on You Tube. The pure joy he expresses at the end of his programs - even after a fall - just brought tears to my eyes. He could skate like no one else, it's too bad we never knew just how far he could have gone if he had been able to become disciplined enough to actually work at it.

    300 lbs? I had no idea. It's very sad.

    I saw some recent pictures of him on some links I had gotten from his official website and he had gotten hefty.

    I watched his '91 Skate America performance on YouTube (like hepcat had suggested) and he was soooo good.....they were talking about how he didn't do a warm up run-thru and how amazing it was that he did so well even after foregoing the run-thru!

    I guess the autopsy of Chris Bowman failed to show cause of death. That must be so frustrating for his family and friends.

    Former figure skating champ's cause of death still a mystery - CNN.com
