Wow, just wow. thanks for sharing.
Thanks for posting that link. That is a powerful memoir.
Wow is right.
Wow. Thanks so much for the link. I can't believe she and Colledge didn't speak for 45 years.
This is an amazing story. Thanks for tipping us off to it.
I was speechless after I read that. Talk about a rough coach and a skating mom..
What an amazing memoir. Just wow.
What a stunning article,
Lorraine Hanlon, US Champion, 1963
Much more about the aftermath of the crash for Lorraine, and others:
Her later career:
Thank you skatesindreams for your interesting additions to the story.
Best line of the entire article was the last line.
"And after that I began living an ordinary life."
Because nothing in skating is ordinary!
That was an amazing story! Thank you so much for sharing it.
I am stunned, a bit tearful, and very grateful for every moment I have ever spent on the ice after reading that. Thank you, so very much.
This is a beautiful read. :')
um, was there a story behind her going 1st to 4th between 1963 and 1964? That's a lot of movement in that day and age.
That's kind of a long article, but it definitely sounds interesting. Can anyone please give us the Cliff Notes? A few sentences would be more than fine.
I'll add a wow to the pile. Thanks for the story and the links.
Thank you Iceman-what an amazing memoir. It's brilliant!
Thank you too skatesindreams for those wonderful links!
Forum won't let me rep either of you for another 24 hours but will do when I can!
wow. just, wow.
thank you SO much for the link, that was really, really interesting!!!
Didn't Tina Noyes and Peggy Fleming emerge as Seniors in the '63 - '64 season? Tina Noyes was still competing as a novice in '61. Maybe, you had a situation where some incredible talent emerged into the US Sr. Ranks just in time for the Olympic season....
Yes. Noyes was the 1963 US junior champion, and I believe Fleming was also a junior medalist that year?
That was a beautifully written interesting yet so very sad story.
It's worth reading the whole thing.
Also Carlo Fassi. While the have their job and the theirs, Ms. Colledge didn't mention the coaches' job -- off ice.
