    So slim! Any idea how old she is? Seems young and unsure of herself.

    She was good! Great carriage I thought, and killer death spiral. Funny how simple lifts were in those days - barely held a position, no changes.

    Without seeing her competitors, I give her points for what appears to be an ambitious program, but she'd get trounced by any of her students today! The head flung back was distracting, but not enough to hide the lack of unison, and unsureness of her movements.

    What fun, thanks for posting!

    Priscilla Hill Competing at US Nationals and 1978 and 1982 Worlds are on YouTube - for some reason I can't copy the links.

    Indeed! The feat they perform these days are amazing and so demanding on the body. :eek: But this does not take away the beautiful skating of the old-timers.:)
    Thanks Vash01.

    That's their EX at 1965 Europeans.
    Her partner was Georgi Proskurin.

    Does anyone know of any videos of Frank Carroll or Richard Callaghan competing? There is a video on YouTube of Frank Carroll skating in 1963 Ice Follies, but it is so dark I can't tell which skater he is.

    That makes no damn sense!!! I have to say that if i were a pairs skater, I wouldn't let her retire before i took a few lessons from her. It would definately be on my bucket list
