    Compulsory figures, for the most part, determined the winners back in the days, and it was also rare that a current champion was defeated. I think Dij would have continued to win until retirement.

    But, what if Owen had been going into '64 as '63 World champ?

    And it rare but it was possible for a reigning champion to be beaten. Carol Heiss beat the new Olympic Champion Tenley Albright for the 1956 World title just two weeks after the Games.

    I'm guessing they were both close in the figures going into their LP and I think Tenley fell on a double axel.

    This is true. And Maribel I am sure would have drilled Laurence in figures until she could do those tracings in her sleep.
