    Sure i know that, but i still like comparing it. Who wouldn’t? And who of
    those who commented and pressed the play button did it to marvel at
    sportive achievements. I guess everyone here thought something like: “Hey
    cool… this might be funny… just imagine the costumes and the just
    barely developed network of talent scouts and sponsoring for figure skating
    in that decade…”

    thanks for this clip – I haven’t seen a lot of skating vids from the 40’s,
    I enjoyed seeing Button and Scott here, as well as some skaters I had not
    heard of before.

    Figure skating is definately more… artistic. As in it has more dance
    incorporated into it now a days.

    Thank you for posting this. I can’t imagine where you found it. So much has
    changed in the years; I’ll never understand the bent free leg on the
    landings of jumps.

    If skaters in Juvenile or novice traveled back in time, they would win the
    competitions. So amazing how figure skating evolved because of these great
    champions. Thanks for the upload.

    Thanks very much for posting this. After hearing so much about Dick Button
    being back to back Olympic champion, I really wanted to see this history
    being made. Thanks again.

    I wonder why they edited out everyone’s triple axels and quadruple toe
    loops…(just kidding! ;-P)

    Except they would flunk at the compulsory figures

    you weren’t alive 64 years ago!!!! Skating has evolved. But this was the
    BEST in the world at that time. Grow up!
