Skating for the Gold

Skating for the Gold - Chip Lovitt As a general overview of the setup for the 1998 women's Olympic competition, I suppose this isn't bad, but the devil's in the details, and boy are there some howlers in this one. Jumps are misidentified madly, in such a manner that one gathers the author really doesn't understand the significance of a double vs. a triple lutz (not to mention that he credits Tara with a triple loop-triple lutz combination - way to go, Tara!) Elvis Stojko, on a 1995 tour, is identified as the "future World Champion" (guess those first two just don't count…) Anyway, I'm sure the Michelle & Tara fan camps both had a ball dissecting this one.
