    Plushy has probably many gold streaks to count! From 2002-2006 he lost the gold only 2 times i think.
    Most impressive from his debut senior 1998 till 2006, he got one time off podium!:cheer2:(worlds 2000 :fragile:)

    Irina Rodnina with both partners never placed lower than 1st in any portion of any international competition from the 1971 Worlds LP right through to the 1980 Olympic LP. THAT is amazing! :respec: What's more amazing is that other than the 1971 Worlds SP where she placed 2nd due to Ulanov botching his sbs 2t, and 1968 Euros; her first major international where she was only 5th, I can't think of any other instance where she finished behind anybody.

    add Gordeeva and Grinkov to the list of medalist at first time senior worlds.
    I'm sure Katarina Witt has many streaks that still go on...
    Shen and Zhao won every phase of a competition they entered from 2006 gp till the lp of the Vancouver Olympics in 2010!! hehe

    I'm not sure how this got from streaks to skaters who won medals on their first trip to senior Worlds, but you can add Angelika Krylova & Vladimir Fedorov (RUS). They won bronze in ice dance on their first trip to Worlds in 1993.

    Except for 2004 Worlds, Sasha Cohen has fallen at every Worlds and Olympics she has entered into.

    went for streaks late in her career. She ought to be known as "Glammy Hair." ;)

    Anastasia Gimazedinova was a skater given to streaks.

    Jeffrey Buttle tended to have more streaks as the season went on, but usually gave in to the blond side by the time Worlds rolled around.

    I'm not sure, but I think Joannie Rochette is just naturally streaky.

    :hat1:

    I was. But kudos to all the medalists, anyway. And betting that Joubert and Lepistö will have some more medals 2010-11.

    US ladies medaled at every worlds from 1949 through 1960; after the 1961 plane crash, a US lady didn't medal until Peggy Fleming got a bronze in 1965. Then, US ladies medaled in '65, '66, '67 and '68, but not in '69, before the streak you mentioned. Another two years off the podium (in '93 and '94) and US ladies medal again consistently from 1995 through 2006.

    Cindy Botz and Jessica Mills were two skaters that I had hoped to see more in the senior rank, but they never duplicated their junior successes.

    Did Jessica Mills really win Jr. World? I thought she finished 2nd twice.

    She finished 1st in 1989 and 4th in 1990.

    And then Lisa Ervin finished 2nd three times in a row, 1991-92-93.
