American teenagers Tai Babilonia, 18, and Randy Gardner, 19, practice their pair ice skating routines in 1977 at a rink in Southern California, USA. They won a gold medal at the 1979 World Figure Skating Championships, and qualified for the Winter Olympics in 1976 and 1980. The young couple also won five U.S. Figure Skating Championships in a row from 1976 through 1980. The celebrity skaters were the star performers in Ice Capades shows from 1980 to 1983. The pair remained skating partners for almost 40 years until retiring from the sport in 2008. Historical photo.
