Interview With Rory Flack Burghart
Another new interview at http://www.facebook.com/SkateGuard and http://skateguard1.blogspot.ca for you all - this time with U.S. Open and American Open Professional Champion, coach & choreographer Rory Flack Burghart: http://skateguard1.blogspot.com/2013...-burghart.html. A fantastic skater! Just love her.
She was so cool and Best Russian splits ever.
ETA: I had no idea her aunt was Roberta Flack.
That was a great interview.
Rory proves that you can achieve great success as a Pro, even if you don't have the results you hoped for in eligible competition.
It's hard to believe that I first saw her as a Novice, in 1980!

I did not become familiar with until I watched her on TV as a pro. Boy, was I impressed! Good for her!

Stiff competition, indeed.
Indeed - one of the truest examples of a skater going from disappointing results as an amateur to a very successful pro career - beating skaters like Nancy Kerrigan, Liz Manley, Yuka Sato & many more along the way. She's truly one of a kind! Just love her.
