Wow. Thanks so much for the link. I can't believe she and Colledge didn't speak for 45 years.
In my spare time, I like to interview figure skating legends.
This is an amazing story. Thanks for tipping us off to it.
I was speechless after I read that. Talk about a rough coach and a skating mom..
What an amazing memoir. Just wow.

Thank you skatesindreams for your interesting additions to the story.
Best line of the entire article was the last line.
"And after that I began living an ordinary life."
Because nothing in skating is ordinary!
That was an amazing story! Thank you so much for sharing it.
I am stunned, a bit tearful, and very grateful for every moment I have ever spent on the ice after reading that. Thank you, so very much.
This is a beautiful read. :')
um, was there a story behind her going 1st to 4th between 1963 and 1964? That's a lot of movement in that day and age.

That's kind of a long article, but it definitely sounds interesting. Can anyone please give us the Cliff Notes? A few sentences would be more than fine.
I'll add a wow to the pile. Thanks for the story and the links.
Thank you Iceman-what an amazing memoir. It's brilliant!
