    Rosalynn Sumners

    U.S. figure skater Rosalynn Sumners was born on April 20, 1964 in Palo Alto, California. She was the World Junior champion in 1980, the U.S. National champion in 1982, 1983 and 1984, World champion in 1983, and won a silver medal at the 1984 Winter Olympics.

    I have always been a great admirer of Rosalynn Sumner's skating. There are a few gaps in my knowledge of her career. I wonder if anyone saw her perform at the 1981 Skate America where she finished fourth. She once gave an interview where she said she landed five triples in that competition and I wondered what they were. I heard she was capable of doing the lutz. I also wondered what jumps she landed at the 1982 NHK Trophy where she finished second to Katarina Witt. And most intriguingly, what happened to her at the 1983 Zagreb Golden Spin where she finished second to Sandra Dubravcic? She must have missed a lot of her jumps. Does anyone have any details? Any knowledge much appreciated. I wish she would write an autobiography.

    I don't remember the particular programs you ask about. I remember Roz mostly for her excellent 2A.
