    US ladies medaled at every worlds from 1949 through 1960; after the 1961 plane crash, a US lady didn't medal until Peggy Fleming got a bronze in 1965. Then, US ladies medaled in '65, '66, '67 and '68, but not in '69, before the streak you mentioned. Another two years off the podium (in '93 and '94) and US ladies medal again consistently from 1995 through 2006.

    Cindy Botz and Jessica Mills were two skaters that I had hoped to see more in the senior rank, but they never duplicated their junior successes.

    Did Jessica Mills really win Jr. World? I thought she finished 2nd twice.

    She finished 1st in 1989 and 4th in 1990.

    And then Lisa Ervin finished 2nd three times in a row, 1991-92-93.
