    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    Wow!!! An SP from the 70's. They are so rare . . . and a woman doing a good 3S-2Lp, no less.

    Her triple sal double loop at Lake Placid Olympics SP was also amazing

    Linda's 76 Nationals LP and 77 Worlds SP were her two best performances, IMO. Everything else after that was Pffffft. I find it's interesting that the footwork she had in the 77 SP was more complicated than what she did in her 80 Olympic SP. I think Linda would've grown much more artistically and technically if her chief rivals were excellent free skaters like Denise, Wantanabi, etc.

    I wonder if Manley and Fratianne have ever gone out for drinks because it's clearer and clearer to me that they were the best two performers across all three portions of the competition in their respective Olympics ... Ito and Beillmann should also have drinks ... Thomas and Potzch should have gotten similar placements, whatever that should have been.

    Dianne De Leeuw - 1976 World Championships - SP

    Lovely. Maybe it is the low quality of the video, but I don't know what Uncle Dick was talking about regarding the 2A. Any lady today would love to do it that way

    I love the serpentine footwork. It is great to see good footwork in pattern.

    ETA: I never realized how relatively tall she is.

    Christine Errath - 1976 Olympics - Short Program

    The video is out of synch, but you can see she is a very good quality skater. Very sturdy.

    De Leeuw, despite being American herself but representing the Netherlands, was Hamill's closest rival for the OGM so the ABC hype 'n' trash machine went into overdrive on her skating, pointing out every minute flaw. She did have a strange technique on her double axel where she brought the free leg up and to the side as she rotated - kind of like a jazz pirouette position. She never crossed her ankles on it. Worked for her but it would be deemed horendous technique today. Here's a better view:

    Dianne de Leeuw1976 Olympics LP

    Errath was wonderful - sturdy yes, in the style of Gaby Seyfert, although they had different coaches, but she really was a great skater with a wonderful double axel she could do out of just about anything and one of the few ladies to start trying triples in the early 1970's. I have a fair bit of Errath on tape - I really need to get some of her stuff on youtube sometime!

    Another one ! Interview with Helmut Seibt, it says winter 1948 but I don't know which competition it is. Footage is played while the interview is going on.
