    I was just thinking about the fact that the US ladies won 8 consecutive bronze medals at Worlds, 1984 to 1991.

    Of course, in some of those years they also won gold or silver, or both in 1991 when they swept the podium.

    So what are some other interesting or fun medal streaks?

    Obvious one: Russian or Soviet pairs won the Olympic gold for 12 consecutive Olympic games.

    Russian ladies won the gold at Europeans 8 consecutive times, from 1996 to 2003.Granted, it was the same two ladies winning over and over

    American ladies won JW bronze for 6 consecutive years - 2004-2009.

    What about the every reigning American World Champion winning Olympic Gold until after Scott Hamilton?

    ETA: not sure if this is right, but I remember them mentioning something of the like in commentary at the Olympics.

    Worlds:

    US men won from 1948 - 59
    Russian men won from 1998 - 2004
    At least one US lady has been on the podium from 1995 - 2006

    That is not quite correct; it is that every American male who has gone into the Olympics as reigning world champion has won the gold medal, up to and including Evan Lysacek. This streak is still alive.

    Grishuk & Platov's results at Worlds 1990-1994 were 5-4-3-2-1.
    Platov was 6th in 1989 with his previous partner, so he went 6-5-4-3-2-1.

    Nancy Kerrigan's results at US Nationals 1989-1993 were also 5-4-3-2-1. When I mentioned this on another site years ago, another poster pointed out that she could be considered to have finished "0th" in 1994.

    Does half-naked count? (I was thinking of the guy in the tutu and no shirt who appeared at Worlds 2004, just before Kwan's free)

    If we're talking about senior worlds, yes.

    But, at junior worlds in 1976, Peter and Liz Cain won bronze at the innaugural event in 1976.

    Also, Michael Pasfield has won the compulsory figures silver at junior worlds (I think it was '77 or '78), and Stephanie Zhang won silver in the short program (in 2002).

    Michelle Kwan medaled at every event she skated in between 1996 until her 4th place at worlds in 2005 which was her last event. She also did not place lower than 2nd at any event between 1996-2001.

    Not sure if Rudy qualifies, since he was at Worlds as a pairs skater before winning the bronze in the singles event.

    I think Evan Lysacek's first Worlds was in 2005, when he won Bronze.
