article imageFigure skater Elvis Stojko marks beginning of music career

By Kevin Jess     Nov 6, 2009 in Entertainment
Elvis Stojko, a two-time Olympic silver medalist, released the first single from his new album "100 Lifetimes" yesterday. It marks the beginning of the skating champion's music career.
Elvis Stojko, 37, has returned to the spotlight after all but retiring following the 2002 Olympics with the release of the single, "Let Me Be The One," reports the Canadian Press.
Stojko's album "100 Lifetimes" will be released later this fall.
The album will be featured in a musical figure skating show titled "Rock the Ice" to be held Jan. 3, 2010 in Peterborough, Ontario.
The seven-time Canadian figure skating champion and three-time world champion moved south near Guadalajara, Mexico eight years ago to do some soul-searching and last year he decided to make a return to the sport with CNE's Aerial Acrobatics and Ice Skating Show this past August.
Elvis has not been sitting still these past years.
Besides working on his music career since 2006, Stojko has also been dabbling in acting and in 2004 he joined the Toronto production of the stage musical "Grease", reports Canadian Press.
Outside of figure skating, Mr. Stojko's biggest interest is in martial arts, and Elvis fans were able to see this side of him in the September 12 debut of the Bravo TV series "Star Portraits.''
According to Stojko's website music has played a large role in his life. His father was a "classically trained tenor and has been singing for over 40 years and his mother was a dancer back in her home country of Hungary."
