A visit to the skate is never to be forgotten.At the Broadmoor, no one really forgets. Since Feb. 15, 1964, a marble skate has sat next to where the renamed Broadmoor World Arena stood until it was leveled in 1994.
The skate lists the names of the eight Broadmoor members who died that day. Fleming used to sit on the skate during training
I really liked Westerfields skating in the clip shown. I had barely known anything about her before, except that she was one of those killed in the fateful crash. I think she and Owen would have had one of the greatest ever U.S rivalries, especialy considering Westerfield being stronger in figures. She also could have been a contender for the 64 OGM I think. I really liked Owen & Richards the pair team too.
