Still off topic but since it was asked. The first ever pairs throw was a throw waltz jump and it was introduced into the sport by Frances Dafoe and Norris Bowden. I just got this information straight from Frances herself. She also told me they were the first ever pair to perform a twist lift from a loop entrance at Worlds in 1955! The first throw axel was by the US team of Pieter Kollen & Patti Gustafson at the 1963 Worlds. It was invented by their coach Ron Ludington. Still don't know for sure if the first throw double axel was by the Militano's or Gross & Kagelmann. Both landed it in the 1972 season. I do know that the Militano's were only doing throw axels in 1971 but I have no footage of Gross & Kagelmann from 1971 so it's still unclear who was first.
