    Some Questions

    I have some questions that will really help me in writing a skate fic...Thank you so much in advance

    What rinks were their in New York in the early 70s?
    At what age would a future champion get their single axel back then? What about early doubles?
    How much did custom skates cost?
    About what jump level did top skater have at the diffrent levels in ladies and pairs?
    Were throw triples common in the mid-80s amoung olympic level skaters?
    How were American pairs "put together" so to speak? That is...how did coaches decide that this girl and that guy should skate together?
    What is early pairs training like?
    What age were skaters when they began pairs in America in the 70s?

    May I suggest looking up some of your information on-line? There are many figure skating sites that can give you the info you are looking for. Just type in Figure Skating or History of Figure Skating. You will be amazed at the number of sites that you will find. Best of luck with your project!
