Biography

Cecilia Colledge was the youngest competitor at the 1932 Winter Olympics, aged only 11. She won her first British senior ladies' title in 1935. After finishing second at the 1935 World Championships and the 1936 Olympics, she won the 1937 World Championships, and was also three-time European Champion (1937-39). During World War II, Colledge served as an ambulance driver in London. Resuming training in 1945, she won her sixth British title in 1946 and then turned professional. In the early 50s, she settled in Boston, where she coached at the Skating Club of Boston from 1952-1995. One of her most successful students was Ron Ludington, who won an Olympic bronze in pairs in 1960, with his wife, Nancy. Ron Ludington later became a very successful coach in Wilmington, Delaware and credited much of his knowledge to Cecilia Colledge.
