    Another Hungarian newsreel clip, although this one unfortunately has very faint sound.

    1948 European Championship - Prague, Czechoslovakia

    http://filmhiradok.nava.hu/watch.php?id=6652


    Skater IDs and rough synopsis of the commentary:


    Alena Vrzáňová (Czechoslovakia) executed a well-received program, took the bronze medal. The young pair Blažena Knittlová / Karel Vosátka, (Czechoslovakia) were a pleasant surprise, winning second place silver out of 11 competitors. Andrea Kékesy / Ede Király (Hungary) captivated the crowd and won the pairs competition. Defending 1947 Ladies World Champion Barbara Ann Scott (Canada) takes the 1948 European title. Gorgeous style of skating presented by Dick Button (United States) - almost without opponents, a high-ranking European victory.


    Some competition tidbits...


    The winning Hungarian pair also competed in singles - Andrea Kékesy placing 7th in Ladies and Ede Király placing 4th in the Men's comp.

    Interesting Slutskaya-Butyrskaya-esque Czechoslovak rivalry between 16yr old Alena "Aja" Vrzáňová (3rd) vs. her slightly younger teammate, Jiřína Nekolová (4th) - who spent the summer training in Canada as a guest of Barbara Ann Scott. Both ladies do well at the Olympics (Nekolová 4th, Vrzáňová 5th), and 1948 Worlds (Nekolová bronze, Vrzáňová 5th.) By 1949, Vrzáňová packs a 2 Lutz and begins to dominate. During the 1950 season both emigrate. Nekolová quietly obtains political asylum while training in the UK, skating 1950 Worlds under the ISU flag. Team Vrzáňová launches a not-so-quiet defection in London right after her victory at the World Championship. Both start their pro careers and join ice revues.

    Big thanks to you for posting all those videos from the past, and great appreciation to those who taped/captured, collected and uploaded these clips in the first place.

    One last dip into the Central European figure skating vaults, a quick yet interesting glimpse of Czechoslovakia's National Figure Skating Championship, 1958. ...

    http://www.bbcmotiongallery.com/gall...050473_3000.do

    First off, please mind the Yank voice-over to this BBC Motion clip - recorded proof that commentators back then could be just as obnoxious as they are now. Just Ladies and Pairs here, couldn't locate a video for the Men's comp (Karol Divín) or the Icedancers.

    Ladies champion Jindra Kramperová goes on to place 5th at Euros and 17th at 1958 Worlds. Note: At that time Kramperová was (and still is) a renowned concert pianist. Here is a really nice magazine story about her from last year.

    Věra Suchánková + Zdeněk Doležal, the pairs champions, win with a creative and lively program that will bring them a second European title and a silver medal at 1958 Worlds. Note the death spiral... S+D are often credited with being the first pair to present this element in competition before the Protopopovs further refined it and presented their 3 variations.

    That is because they skated with different partners before. Didn't someone post an Anissina/Averbuch video previously? I thought I'd seen it around.
