While I'm sure Tonya could've won '91 Worlds if she had merely duplicated her '91 Nats LP there, how many mistakes could she have committed and still won?

I suspect she needed 6 triples. Personally, I'd have awarded her the title with 5, but I don't know about the judges.


she made a hash out of her 3t-3t combo

So they had a kitchen in the arena? That is so neat. I bet not even Sandra Lee could've come up with something that creative. ;)


Would she have had to skate completely clean to beat Kristi in Munich '91 [KY was clean except for a popped sal, I think] or could she have still made a mistake and beaten KY in front of an Intl. judging panel?

Tonya could've singled one of her jumps, I think.


Also, what would a win have done for Tonya going into an Olympic year?

Made her stop practicing? ;)


What would the USFSA's attitude have been??

"Oops, Kristi goofed things up again." :D


Any change??

Well, if they did have some, the USFSA probably wouldn't have given any to Tonya, since she'd have been up to her elbows in endorsements. :lol:

Thanks for all the great videos. Not the greatest, but still a great skater with unrealized potential. Her skating, when she was on, puts most of today's ladies to shame.

Well, I tried to, but the TV in there was too loud, so I just went home. ;)

Fabulous skating, but the editing of her music has always made me CRINGE. :yikes:
