    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!

    I just got my copy and watched and, yes, cried. What a good movie!
