And she skates better than I do, at 90! Truly inspirational.

Yvonne was truly amazing and a great inspiration.
Sadly, 2 days after this video was released, Yvonne has passed away (May 2, 2016)

Yes, now that you mention it, I remember seeing the announcement either on the ISI's or USFS's facebook page.  Hopefully we'll all make it to 90 and still be skating.

I set a personal goal to win the Yvonne Dowling trophy at Adult Nationals one year well in the future.

Pretty amazing, she looks like a young person wearing an old persons costume.
I do like this product it's a Bathmate.

My goal is to live to 100 years and keep ice skating the entire time too. Hence why I eat whole-foods high-carb-low-fat (HCLF) vegan diet.  (*see loma linda california and okinawa japan, HCLF vegans, longest living people on the planet and disease-free)
