    ^It is terrifying indeed but I don’t want to go deeper. The reason I've decided to post this rare video footage was because those unnamed skaters were greatn and like the daring acrobatic skaters were way beyond their time.

    Reposted from the Voidy Show Skating thread, here's an interview from the 1970s with the late, great figure skater Belita Jepson-Turner.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffxll8MqoMI&feature=player_detailpage#t=90s

    The video is cued at the 1:30 mark, with Belita describing the atmosphere at the 1936 Winter Olympics in Garmisch, where at the age of 11 (!) she was representing Great Britain.

    (Fwiw, the entire interview is quite interesting, so check it out...)

    Now for a bit of figure skating archeology.... ;)

    The 1955 European Figure Skating Championships in Budapest, Hungary were held at the Városligeti Műjégpálya, - the huge outdoor ice ring in the city park.

    There is a 17 minute documentary film from the event, digital copy I am unable to locate, however.... this may be the next best thing - a 69 piece captioned slide show assembled from the film stills of the Műkorcsolya Európa bajnokság. Enjoy! :cool:

    There are some great pics here - including future stars at a very young age.

    Captions are in Hungarian, so here are a few key terminology words:
    kötelező gyakorlatok = compulsary exercises (figures and dance CDs)
    kűr = freestyle (free program)
    szabadon választott = free program (just another way of saying it)
    páros = pairs
    jégtánc = icedance
    testvérpár = a sibling pair or icedance team (e.g. Marianne Nagy+László Nagy pair, Hungary)
    házaspár = pairs or icedance partners who are a married couple (e.g. the two Czechoslovakian pairs)
    Any other translation questions, post them here or you can PM me - or just put it though an online translator - for Hungarian to English they work fabulously :confused: :rofl: :yikes: ;)
