I guess I've always known that Kristi and Rudy skated pairs. But to the best of my recollection, I had never actually seen them skate pairs until today. Given the age of these videos, the quality isn't what it is today. But if you can deal with that, it's a fun watch.
I didn't realize the did jumps and spins in opposite directions. That must be a choreographic challenge, and also must make the pair spins very challenging. I LOVED watching their various death spirals in different programs. I'm not qualified to comment on the technical quality from an expert's perspective, but it sure looked great to me, and many interesting positions, entrances, etc.
Especially after watching the videos, I can't even imagine how heart breaking the "split" decision must have been for Rudy, and probably for Kristi too. Obviously Kristi made the right career decision, but I have to think that it was hard on her too to *bail* on her partner.
The videos didn't include any info on final results. Does anyone recall what their best placements were at Jr. Worlds, Sr. Nats, Sr. World's before they split?
