Peggy Fleming - 1968 Olympics LP

Many thanks to quillerpen for the DVD. This is a near complete LP in great quality. There's about 20 seconds missing just before her flubbed lutz jump. However the rest is lovely and while not her best skate - 1968 Nationals was the performance of her career - it's still a great historical moment in the history of Figure Skating. The couple commentating on this performance in retrospect are Carlo and Christa Fassi, Peggy's coaches.
