Is it true about Christopher Bowman? A girl I work with just told me and I can't beleive it. He is one of my favorite skaters. I remember when I met him back in the late 80's on the Cambell's Tour of Championships.

Yes he was found dead in bed by a friend in a cheap hotel [suspected drug overdose ]

Yes, I read about it this morning. There was an article about it in the sports section in our local paper. I kind of figured that his death might be drug-related. He was one of the best skaters, and one of the best performers. I always enjoyed watching him skate. Few skaters could match his performing ability. No wonder he was dubbed "Bowman the Showman". How lucky you were to have met him.

It's sad that his fame and talent weren't enough to make him completely happy. I guess, though, that nothing ever does make you happy once you get addicted to drugs.

Have to agree about the drug adiction

I think he struggled with it all his life but could always pull that fantastic skate out when ever in competition

Loved to watch him skate and always thought he felt the music whatever he skated to
Bowman the Showman was such a great nick name for him because that is what he was ...such a great showman to watch

Very sad as I enjoyed to watch him so much. Too bad he could not hit the technical end cleanly as he was the most entertaining, other than Scott Hamilton.
