Throw back to 1978 Worlds

This is where we discuss figure skating and skating related items. How did you favourite skaters perform, and so on? However we never speculate on the private lives of skaters, like who might be going out with whom, because that is poison and is not tolerated here. A good guideline is that if it's not publicly announced, in the papers etc. then it's probably best to leave it alone. Is it a gray area? Then write to me and ask.

Throw back to 1978 Worlds

Don Jackson (on the right), who landed the first triple lutz in competition, congratulating Vern Taylor of Canada who landed the first triple axle in competition. This was at the 1978 Worlds in Ottawa


Apparently both were coached at one time by Sheldon Galbraith.
