What IS this guy wearing?? Tights and shorts and a tunic ... that's different. Actually they both have puffy topped sleeves, like a Disney's Snow White, which came out at this time. And, looking closer, she has a collar that stands up like Snow White's collar. This photo is from a Canadian skating exhibition, not a competition, so I guess they are going for a themed look. Who knows, maybe they were skating to "Some Day my Prince Will Come."

The video below shows many of the skaters from the 1936 Olympics. Sonya Henie won gold that year. You can see how the routines are based on LOTS of spinning, very little jumping.
OH ... SORRY! I was going to keep this blog about skating, but look what I found!
And LOOK at that sled. WOW, not too much protection. So different from the encased bullet shaped things used now. I even found a video of the bobsled event from that year.
So, Olympic week is over. I have had more fun digging up all these old photos and videos. I have only scratched the surface really. Just go to YouTube and search and loose a few hours of your day.
