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.

Wow, what achievements! I got out of breath just reading this article, and must admit while I have been an ardent fan, many of these "firsts" had been lost in my memory. Once again, thank you Elizabeth for keeping us on our toes - virtually of course.

That's really something!! i knew Don was the first to land a triple Axel, but the first triple jump in '58 was previously unknown to me. Barbara Ann Scott got her name in there a few times, as well. I wish I had known all of her achievements when I got to speak with her at Minto. Of course I think i was already sufficiently impressed. All of them helped define our Canadian identity. What a great job they've done.
