Worlds Rewind: Ottawa 1978

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.

Worlds Rewind: Ottawa 1978

Post by Elizabeth » Sat Oct 19, 2019 11:17 am

My first opportunity to attend a World Figure Skating Championships was 1978 when they were held in Ottawa (where I still live). It was the only Worlds that I have attended where I didn't have all event tickets :( (A group of us shared some sets of tickets, each attending some of the events.) Live and learn!

This is part 4 of the 10 part series from Skate Canada leading up to World 2020 in Montreal: https://skatecanada.ca/2019/10/worlds-r ... tawa-1978/

It was exciting to see Vern Taylor land the first triple axel in competition!
