    Rachael Flatt as a Pairs Skater.

    Say,I know that Rachael Flatt did Pairs Skating at one time. So I was wondering if anyone knows of any photos or images of her doing it? Thanks.

    When you asked this question before, this was the only online photo that was found ("Flatt and Andrew Speroff, Broadmoor Skating Club members and the current U.S. national Intermediate Pair champions") in 2004:

    Say,do we have any Record of what Moves in Pairs Rachael has with Andrew? Does she have her Deasth-Spiral and all? Though I don't know what moves you do in Intermedite Pairs.

    I think that is the biggest that the picture can be. If it's enlarged any more, it goes out of focus.

    If they were the intermediate champions, they definitely did death spirals and probably doubles.

    From Skating magazine article (January 2004):
    Intermediate pairs

    A handful of familiar names showed up in the pairs event – that's because fans had seen these skaters perform in the ladies and men's event already.

    The clear class of the field is Rachael Flatt and Andrew Speroff (Broadmoor SC). Coached by Tom Zakrajsek and Eric Schultz, this team's side-by-side double Axels were outstanding and beyond their age and level.

    "The double Axels haven't been as consistent as we'd like them to be, but we finally got them down to a fine art," Flatt said.

    Skating to the Spy Kids soundtrack, a fall on the throw double loop by Flatt and Speroff, who had also competed in the men's event, was offset by two strong lifts, the death spiral and twist lift.

    "I'm excited and proud of ourselves; we did a nice job in our program," Flatt said before rushing off to inform Speroff of their first-place finish.

    And then a Correction in the following April issue:
    "The article on the 2004 U.S. Junior
    Figure Skating Championships in the
    February 2004 issue of SKATING
    incorrectly stated that intermediate
    pairs champions Rachael Flatt and
    Andrew Speroff fell on a throw double
    loop. The pair skated a clean program.
    SKATING regrets the error. "
