Their artistic versatility is such that they can even skate to Chinese music (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33tsgrYu0Tg) and still come off as absolutely mesmeric.

What's that supposed to mean? :rolleyes:

I believe both Polish and Hungarian have the "sz" combination, only they are pronounced differently (if I'm not wrong it's pronounced as a simple "s" in Hungarian and as "sh" in Polish). So yeah, I guess might be Hungarian as well.
well, it could be Polish since there is many Polish-German families and he was born in Greifswald near to Polish-German borderline. but I was wondering if his surname could be Russian or Ukrainian. Szolkowy means "silky" in both these launguages.

Silly. What mrinalini is trying to say is that throughout their history, the Chinese race have yet to create anything of artistic merit. I hope I'm not putting words in anyone's mouth.

I know, that is what it sounds like. Hope she doesn't mean that.

My goodness, that's not what I mean at all! I just meant that S/S are artistically so versatile that they can skate to everything from Pina to Out of Africa to Chinese music. I'm trying to picture V/T skating to the piece I linked to, and somehow I just don't think they'd do as good a job as S/S.

I like that piece, btw, and considering that I find traditional Chinese characters the most beautiful writing in the world, I'd say that the Chinese have come up with at least one invention with some artistic merit. ;)

ETA: Thanks, Proustable; that's precisely what I was getting at!

FWIW, that's how I took it - that S/S can skate to something dissimilar to what they've done before and do wonderfully with it.

"Szolkowy" sounds Polish to me, definitely not Hungarian, and I'm Hungarian, lol. (Right on about the pronounciation though)

imagine if this were done with trankov in the mix and not morozov :) of course, trankov may not agree to this kind of music but then again, just imagine the mind-blowing possibility of the top two teams doing this kind of exhibition together
