OMG! That's so awesome!! :rofl: She was so GOTH! I really liked Bestandigova/Bestandig actually; they were the definition of a voidy Euro pair! poths should be happy!

So not only is he not a skater or any kind (hockey or roller at least has SOME semblance to fs, lol), according to this profile (http://www.pairsonice.net/profileview.php?pid=8) she is 31 and her only competitions since 2002 were the 2005 Euros/Worlds (apparently a bid to qualify for Torino). This is more exciting than Kokhlova/Andreev!

Here is another pic that we took during a training camp in July in Oberstdorf, Germany.

We saw them training. They were doing already double throws and overhead lifts (carefully).

Bestandigova was always an UBER VOID! Turns out, even her life is voidy :rofl:


She must be early 30's by now??

She definitely competed at Karl Schafer 2005 in a bid to qualify for Torino. SHe wore these parachutte pants and skated one of the voidiest No Teknik things I had ever seen. She skated with Futas at this point...and came last?/2nd last!

But they won on voids! :cheer:

I remember she landed two throws (both double footed) at Euros one year (2000?) which was pretty :kickass: for her....wore a leather skirt with violet hair, a nose ring and a choker whilst fondling her brother who always seemed aroused :invoid:


Miezekatze has pics and a report from SLC 2002 on her website: Good job Mieze!
