The Austrian skater is 60 today.

I put the link mostly because of the photo - she looks nice and energetic on it, and IMO better than she did as a young girl.

:cool:

Fröhliche Geburtstag! Trixi!!!!

Here's some clips of her from Sapporo (with Janet Lynn and Karen Magnussen too)

There's also some footage of her head and shoulders as she does a loop figure (those shoulders are just so rock solid!)

There used to be some clips of her free skating but I can't find them right now....

Obviously not what she enjoyed the most, but her basic skills are undeniable....
