Biography

In 1957 Ron Ludington paired with Nancy Rouillard to win the National Pairs Championship. Later that year they married, and as Nancy and Ron Ludington they went on to win the U.S. championship for three more years. Their best world finish was a third place, which they equalled at the 1960 Olympics. Ron Ludington was one of the very few skaters to have competed and placed in the National Championships in all three disciplines – singles, pairs, and dance. This was in 1958 when his dance partner was Judy Lamarr. After his competitive days were over, Ron Ludington went on to become a very well known figure skating coach, numbering among his pupils Cynthia and Ron Kaufman and currently, Kitty and Peter Carruthers. He and Nancy later divorced, and he married Mary Batdorf, who would coach American Olympians Paul Wylie and Nancy Kerrigan. Ludington actually started out in roller figure skating, and was discovered by Maribel Owen at the 1953 North American Championships in roller skating.
