The name Skippy Baxter was at one time synonymous with Sonya Henie. I heard many wonderful reports on his figure skating at the old Center Theatre in Rockefeller Center.
Apparently he was the first skater to execute a triple salchow (and he did it during his show routine!) way back in the late 40s. He also was the first skater to do the sommersalt flip on ice in his show routine.
According to the article he was born in Canada and he is still with us. Who knew? I think he could write a book or two on figure skating way back then.
Anyone have any other news on him?
