Kristi Yamaguchi & Rudi Galindo

Both were amazing singles skaters, and they were also very special as a pair.

As a pair, the team competed as Kristi Yamaguchi & Rudi Galindo for six seasons total, two at the junior level, two at the senior level, and two years when they competed as seniors in the U.S. and as juniors internationally. They were the most successful mirror pair to date. They were twice U.S. Junior champions, in 1986 and 1987, 1987 World Junior Champions, twice U.S.Senior champions in 1989 and 1990, and finished twice in fifth place at Worlds. Kristi decided to concentrate on single skating, so the team split after the 1989-1990 season. Kristi was 18, Rudy was 20 at the time of their retirement, and would still have been eligible for juniors during their final season. Kristi and Rudi's free skate routines were so difficult that few pairs today could perform them, as they included a triple flip trip toe sequence and difficult transitions

Thanks for this! I love watching older programs from all-time greats. I'll definitely be watching a lot of these tonight.
