Kristine Tsuya "Kristi" Yamaguchi-Hedican (born July 12, 1971) is an American figure skater. She is the 1992 Olympic Champion in ladies' singles. Yamaguchi also won two World Figure Skating Championships in 1991 and 1992 and a U.S. Figure Skating Championships in 1992. She won one junior world title in 1988 and two national titles in 1989 and 1990 as a pairs skater with Rudy Galindo. In December 2005, she was inducted into the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame. Yamaguchi was a local commentator on figure skating for San Francisco TV station KNTV (NBC 11) during the 2006 Winter Olympics. In 2008, Yamaguchi became the celebrity champion in the sixth season of Dancing with the Stars.

Yamaguchi was born in Hayward, California, to Jim Yamaguchi, a dentist, and Carole (née Doi), a medical secretary. Yamaguchi is Yonsei (fourth-generation Nikkei). Her paternal grandparents and maternal great-grandparents immigrated to the United States from Japan, originating from the Wakayama Prefecture and the Saga Prefecture. Yamaguchi's grandparents were sent to an internment camp during World War II, where her mother was born.

Yamaguchi and her siblings, Brett and Lori, grew up in Fremont, California. Yamaguchi attended Mission San Jose High School for her freshman year of high school but later transferred and graduated from Willow Glen High School in San Jose, California. She did not attend college.
