    1980 US Olympic Team Photo

    Here's a link to a wonderful photograph of the 1980 United States Olympic figure skating team. Tai Babilonia/Randy Gardner, Linda Fratianne, Lisa-Marie Allen, Scott Hamilton, David Santee, Charlie Tickner, etc. Notice how the men wore jumpsuits in that era....

    Somewhere between Linda and Judy, there is an unidentified lady.

    The "unidentified lady" two to the right of Linda Fratianne.....
    I think it's Elaine Zayak, who was then 14 and the Olympic alternate, as she had finished 4th at Nationals. It certainly looks like Elaine - what do you all think???

    That is Woody Allen (as Zelig, from the film of the same name).

    ITA Verbalgirl! It's a nice picture, though.

    It's kind of hard to look at the photo with Tai and Randy, knowing what happened to them at Lake Placid. Truly one of the saddest moments for American Olympic skaters.
