Speaking of Peggy - here is a look into figures, skating outdoors in the cold and the never ending trickery of Fassi.
Some are "streetsmart," and Fassi was that as well as being "icesmart."
"At Davos, Carlo Fassi made sure that Peggy was prepared for the high cold by engaging the West German team trainer, Curt Schumacher, to rub her legs with liniment each time she went out on the ice. After each turn Fassi would take her back to Schumacher to have the liniment rubbed off with alcohol lest it overheat her legs."
