    In relation to the US team plane crash, I believe that a competition called North Americans had been held in Philadelphia just prior to the crash. I wonder if he had been there. There were practices in Ardmore, was he there? I don't believe that he had been World Champion prior to that.

    Would love to know if he feels lucky to have had such a long career compared to the current skaters, where there is barely a pro life. Did he teach?

    LOL. My personal beef with Carmen is that all Carmens were OK up until 1988. But once you've had a well-publicized "Battle of the Carmens" I think it's time to let the poor lady die. Plus frankly, with few exceptions, I don't see a lot of originality in Carmen programs anymore. Or the costuming of Carmen for that matter.
    In my spare time, I like to interview figure skating legends.

    WOAH! In doing my homework I found this documentary on him buried in his website. It really shows his jump technique.

    Thanks for sharing that. I'd love to see a picture of it.
