He also competed in the 1988 and 1992 Winter Olympics, placing seventh and fourth, respectively. Bowman later performed with the Champions on Ice tour and the Ice Capades. After his professional skating career ended, Bowman admitted that he had a serious cocaine addiction; his death was attributed to a drug overdose.
