America’s best-known male figure skater was in South Dakota Friday.
Scott Hamilton flew into Sioux Falls to meet a 15-year-old girl from Mexico.
Perla is recovering from open-heart surgery. Her surgery is paid by a donation from Hamilton through the Los Cabos Children’s Foundation in Mexico.
Not only is Perla meeting a former Olympian, she is meeting him on her 15 birthday.
Perla’s complicated surgery was a success and she will be returning home Sunday.
This is Hamilton’s first visit to South Dakota, and the 50th state he has visited.
