Look at what I just discovered on amazon.com:

http://www.amazon.com/Champions-Vincent-McNichol-Jennifer-Schedeen/dp/B003NTT74U/ref=sr_1_1?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1292871172&sr=1-1

This is quite the chestnut from years past. Glad to see it commercially available and on DVD.

OMG .... I remember watching this on TV. And it was "inspired by real events" ... uh, who was it based on?

I'll black this out just in case someone doesn't want to know plot point, but which skater was it that was killed in a plane crash -- or was it car wreck -- the guy or the girl?

I think the guy died in a plane crash and then the girl went on to skate singles? I think I saw this when I was 6 or 7 (I'm 34 now), so my memory is a bit faulty!
