    A youtube user, gymerin, posted a very rare video of Sasha Cohen.
    It's the FS from the 1998 US Novice Figure Skating Championships where she finished 6th overall.

    Love it! :D I didn't realize Klimova was only 17 when she won the Olympic Bronze Medal in Sarajevo.

    I also enjoy listening to commentators talk about these legendary skaters when they first started their career. Thanks again for finding so many treasures.

    Clip from the Ice Carnival 1950, includes some brief examples of pairs skating, ladies, men, show routines and... a skating bear.

    One of the best show skaters of that era:
    Show routine Eva Pawlike & Rudi Seeliger and Eva-a child prodigy in figure skating.

    They had beautiful skills indeed and as lulu mentioned Marina was only 17 years old when they've started climbing the Olimpic stairs in 1984.
    Here is another 17 years old ice dancer Klara Engi with 19 years old Atilla Toth @ 1984 OG
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GHHCGIElIEI

    Thank you for the clarification and i am glad that you liked the video.I love figure skating and don't mind sharing something good, old, special and precious like the following adorable video of young Kitty and Peter Carruters starting from age of 10 months old.

    P.S. Kitty was very good ballerina for 2 years old .

    ^ I don't mind in this case because the footage quality is bad, but, if that was a double, it was huge with some very good technique.

    Another figure skating family :
    Takahiko Kozuka 2000-11 years old
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMTb8_EZ-gE

    and his father Tsuguhiko Kozuka in 1967
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=VUqrYPT0BkY#t=106s

    and in addition 16 years old Irina Cherniaeva (Marina Anissina's mother) with her partner Vasilii Blagov @ 1971/72 Russian Nationals( they won the pairs competition).It is a fragment of "This amazing sport" and i am not sure how long this one will exist since the youtube link for the whole documentary was removed.

    This one is probably a year earlier.Irina just turned 15 and Vasilii 16 apparently they had same birthday date. Tarasova was explaining why she was so harsh on them and how they are still kids who need to understand that in order to become a champion is important to repeat( again and again )jumps ,elements, lifts and etc. even though you are tired or upset.

    How voidy! Yes, I know that phrase gets thrown around a lot on FSU, especially by moi, but really I don't think any other word suffice.
    A million thanks again for this thread, it is wonderful to see a mixture of early & obscure performances from favorite skaters, and be introduced to new skaters as well. :)

    It is the right phrase :)

    This one is slightly off topic because we have earlier programs of John Curry in this thread but i couldn't resist to post this exquisite and mesmerizing piece.

    John Curry, in that exhibition piece, reminds me a bit of the Protopopovs, in that every moment is exact, percise, deliberate and completely finished.

    Thanks for posting the exhibition piece, I don't think we can ever get enough of John Curry's skating. :)
