How did Benjamin Agosto Make His Money & Wealth?
Born on January 15, 1982, in Chicago, Illinois, Benjamin Agosto was raised in the affluent suburbs of Northbrook. As a young boy, he put on his first pair of skates when he was six years old, after having received it for his birthday. After mastering the basic skills, he began to do ice dance at the age of twelve. Early in his skating career, he was taught by Susie Wynne.
By 1998, he was partnered with Tanith Belgian, a fellow ice dancer from Canada. Training together at the work, they eventually won their first medals at the ISU Junior Grand Prix series in the 1999-00 season. From there, the pair finished first at the U.S. Junior National Championships for their first junior title together.
In 2000, Agosto and Belgian competed in their first World Junior Championships event. Finishing in third place, they successfully brought home the bronze medal. Two years later, they would return to the same competition for a gold medal.
Continuing their winning streak, the two ice dancers won three consecutive gold medals at the Four Continents Championships from 2004 to 2007. That last year, they also finished third on the podium at the World Championships in Tokyo, for a bronze medal.
From there, they made their Olympic debut in Turin, Italy, in 2006. As it’d happened, Belbin had successfully become a naturalized citizen of the U.S., which allowed her to compete for the country at the games. After an impressive performnace on the ice, they won the silver medal, which made them the first American ice dance team to achieve such a feat since 1976.
Ultimately, they eventually retired from ice dance in 2010. Since then, Agosto has remained involved with figure skating both as a choreographer and as a coach. For instance, he has helped to choreographed three Disney on Ice Shows in the past. Since 2014, he has also been the director of ice dance at a rink in Scottsdale, Arizona.
