Episode #69: Don Jackson

November 2013
An interview with Donald Jackson, four-time Canadian Champion, 1960 Olympic Bronze Medalist, show skater, coach, author of several books, creator of  Jackson skates, and member of more than a few halls of fame. He's most notable in the history books for being the first person to land a triple lutz in competition (see video below) and was the subject of a short documentary called King of Blades (see that video below too). He talks about how many times it took him to pass the first figure test, that tremendous triple lutz, how he worked on quad salchows, and why it's his fault that Carmen is so popular for skating music. 1 hour, 27 minutes, 12 seconds.
