  John Curry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
John Curry (born 9 September 1949 in Birmingham, England, died 15 April 1994 in Binton) was a British figure skater who won the Olympic and World Championships in 1976.
Curry's father died when he was 16; he then moved to London to study with Arnold Gerschwiler, who coached him to his first British title in 1971.
Curry was reportedly a difficult person to get along with, and a dispute with the business managers of his company forced it to suspend operations in the mid-1980s.
