Kristi Yamaguchi Beats Out Cristian de la Fuente, Jason Taylor on 'Dancing with the Stars'

ABC

She already conquered the ice-skating rink, and now Olympic gold medalist Kristi Yamaguchi has won the battle of the dance floor and become only the second female ever to win Dancing with the Stars. Kristi and her partner Mark Ballas beat out pro-footballer Jason Taylor, who came in second, and telenovela star Cristian de la Fuente, who was the first to be given the boot in last nights finale.

Cristian, who is to undergo surgery Friday for a ruptured tendon in his biceps that he suffered on the show, consoled his partner Cheryl Burke as she wiped away tears. "I would never have the feeling of going into the final after an injury if it wasn't for Cheryl," he said. "She's been the best partner I could have."

Tell us, what did you think of last night's finale?
