    Skating podcast #29: Slavka Kohout, Janet Lynn's coach

    f you're a Janet Lynn fan, you're going to LOVE this podcast!

    Even if you're not, you'll love it anyway. ;-)

    Slavka Kohout ran the skating program at the Wagon Wheel resort in Illinois for 17 years. She ruled the place with an iron (but loving!) fist, and created great memories and incredible legacies for all her skaters. Students included Janet Lynn, Gordie McKellan, Mary Scotvold, Didier Gailhuguet, Debbie Stoery, the Santees and many many many more.

    Downloadable at my website at www.manleywoman.com or at the iTunes Store.

    Enjoy!

    I'm so glad Slavka Kohout was willing to talk to you that long! It was fascinating. I just wish she had talked more about Dick Button (not about their relationship, but as someone who knew Dick very, very well).

    We just ran out of time to talk more. She had somewhere she had to be, so I felt really pressed for time. But since she and Dick are still quite close, I asked her to put in a good word for me to interview him!

    She seems a charming woman! I like Dick, so I'm glad they are quite close.

    It would be wonderful if you could interview him!
