    As I recall, G&G were one of the early gorilla and flea teams. Teams before them, like Valova and Vasiliev, were more evenly matched in size.

    No, the term started in the 1970s, before Valova/Vasiliev.

    Notably Cherkasova/Shakrai

    Maybe the early years of Pestova/Leonovich

    Brian Orser too please. His jumps and performances from 1981 were incredible.

    It really is amazing what people have kept and been able to post on Youtube. Such a fantastic historical record of skaters.

    Challenge: can anyone find video of Johnny skating pairs with his partner Jodi Rudden? They skated on the juvenile and novice level in 1997 and 1998 and made it to what was then called the junior olympics both year.

    It is amazing and thanks to 3Axel1996,morogava and many others we can see those great skaters at the dawn of their career.

    Some mistakes but very impressive considering Johnny had only been on skates for four years.

    :) Mistakes can be forgiven especially when someone just started skating or just was paired with new partner as the case of Totmyanina /Marinin in the following clip.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vwTWWPSL3M

    As the comentator mentioned they both were good "jumpers" but had to improve when skate together(or something like that)

    ^Ironic that the elements they made the mistake on were the side by side jumps. Otherwise that was pretty good.
