    I think the U.S were stupid to not send them to the Olympics. Wouldnt they have gone even if they came 3rd in the FD (keeping them 2nd overall). Anyway even with a fall they were much more skilled than a team like Mayer/Breen. It set them back internationally quite a bit to miss the Olympic and World team one year after their pretty good Worlds debut.

    I think maybe they (Mayer/Breen) won Juniors in 1989?????

    Did Sargent/Witherby win Nationals in '92?

    it appears that despite being defending national champs, Punsalan/Swallow were considered only the #2 team behind Sargent/Witherby by the time of 1992 Nationals. Perhaps fall competitions that year were an influence?

    They did the "Race" FD at SA that year and were 4th. Meyer and Breen were 6th. Did P&S ever do their Olympic FD prior to Nationals?

    The US judges treatment of P&S over the years was weird.

    They won SA over Anissina and Piezerat in the 94-95 season, but the judges put them behind Roca and Sur at Nationals and kept them off the world team.

    R&S barely made top ten while P&S probably would have done a couple spots better.
