Henie's 1928 Olympic performance. Competition records for national,
international and Olympic events are available from the mid-19th
century to the present. Collections also include the only complete
collection in the world of Der Eissport, an early
German newspaper dedicated entirely to skating results and
skating history. Approximately 2,000 protocols are preserved
