Clichy Competitive Audition Protocol Auditor
I meant that this music is much more suited to her skating that later programs.
I only recall Jill using "Conga" (the song) for the 1987 Short Program - and that was effectively 1 continuous piece of musicI can't believe I am saying this . . . I just found this Jill Trenary LP
. . . and I have no idea why Fassi had her doing conga music all those years. This program is just breathtaking.
Jill Trenary - 1986 U.S. Olympic Festival, Figure Skating, Ladies' Long Program
Jill is two years older than Tonya, but they emerged onto the international scene about the same time, competing at junior and senior B events. They had a rivalry for about 5 years, which ended with the death of figures that coincided with Jill's "ankle injury".Too bad ESPN didn't show Tonya Harding in the LP. She skated great too. Technically she was fantastic. Trenary ended up beating Harding on a 4-3 split in the LP
Interesting that in 1990, ABC sports did a Jill Trenary and Tonya Harding profile piece before their Nationals coverage. Perhaps they based this on the results of the 1989 Skate America competition.Jill, obviously, had the political upper hand, being coached by the producer of 3 OGMists. I always contend that the results of 1989 Nationals had more to do with Jill's rivalry with Tonya than Yamaguchi's rivalry with Tonya. I don't even think that Tonya thought of Kristi as much of a rival in 1989 because she could do everything Kristi could do in freeskating with better quality technique (ie no flutz, better edges, etc.) and her figures were at an entirely different level.
Thanks. This is great info. I would not know how to find results for Club, Sectional and Regional Events from back then, but those competitions must have sure been exciting.In 89 Yamaguchi was most definitely a rival to Tonya Harding. They met a few times that year had club events and Pacific Coast Sectionals. Every time Tonya would win the SP but then Kristi's consistency would come thru and she would beat Tonya in the LP. Yamaguchi skated lights out at Pacific Coast sectionals that year. Harding skated nowhere near as well at that event. By the time Yamaguchi got to Nationals in Baltimore she was most definitely a USFSA darling.
It's sad when happens but 3Axel96 did a clever thing to save the trouble and keep his/hers precious collection .It's an odd one-I had the whole clip up and was notified that in some countries there might be an issue with copyright but not some others (presumably not the US, because they didn't take it down), and don't do anything about it, just be aware. So I'm aware :laugh: The problem is definitely with Delahunty's Hornpipe, but why the owners of Delahunty's don't just stick an ITunes link on the vid, like the owners of Seachran do, I don't know.
I can see 3Axel96 being careful-hasn't he/she lost their youtube uploads once or twice before? and he/she has thousands.
Baby Kwan in her 1993 U.S. Nationals senior debut. She lands 5 triples, and this program is actually quite good from a musical nuance/budding artistry point of view.
You can still see them (and every other skater of every event) on the NBC olympic site under their full event replays.I will admit I haven't read through all 650 notes, but have Mirai's 2 Olympic programs been taken off YouTube? I can't seem to locate them.
That's actually not Brian. It's his twin who does transitions, spread eagles and spiral sequences in his programsJoubert at about 11-12 years. So cute
