12 Days of Christmas Skating Countdown: Day 9: Robert Wagenhoffer's "Bridge Over Troubled Water"
A couple of years ago, I discovered Robert Wagenhoffer via You Tube. It was one of the best discoveries I've ever made. I'm positive that if I had been alive back in the years of Robert's competitive career--he would have been one of my favorite skaters. I've greatly enjoyed watching some of his competitive programs and his exhibitions, in particular. Robert was third at the 1981 U.S. Championships and second at the 1982 Championships. His qualities and artistic impact are, as Dick Button would say, "first rate."
