    She was so cool and :smokin: Best Russian splits ever.

    ETA: I had no idea her aunt was Roberta Flack. :eek:

    That was a great interview.
    Rory proves that you can achieve great success as a Pro, even if you don't have the results you hoped for in eligible competition.
    It's hard to believe that I first saw her as a Novice, in 1980!

    Love her Russian Split Jumps - amazing! I also had no idea she is related to Roberta Flack.

    I did not become familiar with until I watched her on TV as a pro. Boy, was I impressed! Good for her! :encore:

    She competed against Debi Thomas as they were going through the ranks.
    Stiff competition, indeed.

    Indeed - one of the truest examples of a skater going from disappointing results as an amateur to a very successful pro career - beating skaters like Nancy Kerrigan, Liz Manley, Yuka Sato & many more along the way. She's truly one of a kind! Just love her.
