    SkateCast #75: interview with Sjoukje Dijkstra

    SkateCast #75 is an interview with Sjoukje Dijkstra, the 1964 Olympic champion in ladies’ singles, the 1960 Olympic silver medalist, a three-time World champion (1962–1964), five-time European champion (1960–1964), and the six-time Dutch national champion (1959–1964). In other words, she dominated skating in the early 1960s. We talked about how she’s glad she became a figure skater rather than a speed skater, traveling and training in London as a youngster, and how much hairspray it took to keep her hair big while competing. 40 minutes, 17 seconds

    I'm so glad our paths could cross to do an in-person interview! She rarely travels to the United States.

    Listen here on my website or at the iTunes Store when it appears.

    A few videos:
    1961 footage
    1964 Olympics
    1964 Olympics, again
    In my spare time, I like to interview figure skating legends.

    The interview was full of historical "nuggets".
    What a treat to hear/get to know more about her!

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.
