Toller: "If this is the new trend in ice dancing, they'll be naked by the year 1992." Well, not by 1992, but he was sort of close - we did get dancers pretty close to naked in the '00's, didn't we?

This has become a U&Z uber thread.:lol: but I don't mind it.

I have to join the U/Z worship. I loved them then and I love them now. I think that's why I am firmly on Zhulin's side after all these years, especially in coaching debates. He was a stunning skater ( and I am not talking about his looks :D)

"Four Seasons" were amazing, but I also love their 1991 FD. So deliciously weird and gorgeous.

My favorite of their free dances. I thought they should have won Worlds in '91.

Back during the 6.0 days it was all about reputation. You had to wait your turn especially if you were a Russian team. That's why it was a bit shocking when Platov/Grishuk who were the Russian and World number 2 won the Olympics in 1994 they had never beaten Usova/Zhulin. 1998 in Nagano was supposed to be their time.

I remember Zhulin stating in an interview how disappointed he was not winning OG in 1994 and how important it was to him that Tanja Navka / Roman Kostomarov could make it. At least as a coach he won a gold medal. However, I always felt that it was partly caused by all that personal mess around Zhulin what prevented U/Z winning the gold in 1994. It certainly didnít help their preparation for upcoming competitions nor with support of their own federation. Surprisingly while I loved Gishuk / Platov as well, their 1992 FD was one of their programme I enjoyed least. :shuffle:


Bazarova and Larionov win gold at WTT!
:40beers: to them. However, Russian team results in general :fragile:
