    Nours that is definitely the 1949 Worlds in Paris. British Pathe have a lot of the same footage although they have it mislabelled as the Europeans from that year. Great footage and so cool to see such a lot of Dick Button's skating.

    AWWWWWWW! :cheer:

    Thank you for posting this! So sweet to see that even elite skaters once had to start with simple crossovers and waltz jumps. But you can defintly see already kind of special determination in this performance! :)

    She only competed internationally for two seasons (fall 1992 through winter 1994). It's pretty normal for skaters to keep the same program for two seasons.

    We don't know what she was doing at lower levels during the Soviet period. She was not sent to junior internationals.

    This is such a great thread--it has been wonderful to see so many when they were so young. I love seeing John Curry. My apologies if this has already been posted:

    Well, it's not Oksana's fault if the was only given the one LP for Senior competition. Perhaps it was a problem of finances? Although, I vaguely recall her coach saying something along the lines of if a program is working why change it for the Olympics? I suppose she thought they had a winner=and in the end it was.

    And fragment showing her skating with cute reaction of her students at the end .When asked why they were laughing, Tchaikovskaya said that she always taught her pupils to count to four and stay still after they finish their program but she herself failed to do it.

    Thank you SO much for these, lala!! Artur was SO cute here!! (still is!!) I adore the one from Plushenko's show..he skated VERY well there, and for such a tender age...no wonder Mishin was bragging to everyone about him. I so hope he can find his form this next season. It looked as though he'd be unbeatable by now... {{{{SIGH}}}}
