    Didn't Tina Noyes and Peggy Fleming emerge as Seniors in the '63 - '64 season? Tina Noyes was still competing as a novice in '61. Maybe, you had a situation where some incredible talent emerged into the US Sr. Ranks just in time for the Olympic season....

    Yes. Noyes was the 1963 US junior champion, and I believe Fleming was also a junior medalist that year?

    That was a beautifully written interesting yet so very sad story.

    It's worth reading the whole thing.
    In my spare time, I like to interview figure skating legends.
