    This is a completely random question, but I was watching skating videos on youtube to cure my pre-worlds boredom and I came across a clip of a skating movie from 1979 called Champions: A Love Story.

    http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J94H_4kHy_c

    An online synopsis said that the movie was based on a real life skating tragedy from the 1970's...I was wondering if anyone else had heard the story. Which skaters are they talking about?

    Is this the movie where the guy skater dies in an airplane crash and the girl [his skating pairs partner] becomes a single skater?
