Biographical Info

First lacing up her brother’s skates at age five, Elizabeth Manley became the first Canadian woman to land a triple jump combination in competition, a triple salchow followed by a double loop. Moving to the senior division in 1981, she earned a bronze medal in her first year before becoming a three time Canadian Champion. Her 1986 gold medal at Skate Canada and her 4th place at the 1987 World Championships set the stage for her most successful and memorable season. Her electrifying free skate at the 1988 Calgary Olympics, which included five triple jumps, captured her a silver medal and the hearts of all Canadians. Retiring from amateur competition in 1988, she went on to enjoy additional success as a professional and was awarded the Order of Canada.
