    The event is the 1967 World Figure Skating Championships, in Vienna.

    The event took place between 28 February and 4 March 1967.

    "Peggy Gale Fleming" should read Peggy Gail Fleming, (nevertheless she was known simply as "Peggy Fleming").

  2. jamied says

    "Gabrielle Seyfert" should read Gabriele Seyfert.

    Peggy Fleming is the girl dressed in white, seen between 03:15 and 04:12.

    Gabriele Seyfert is seen between 04:24 and 05:14.

    Hana Maskova is seen between 05:27 and 06:07.
