    The 2013 version. :swoon: :swoon: The combination spin may be my absolute favorite by any skater.

    Dmitri Shostakovich's Winter Olympic medals:

    - 1988 OSM in men's singles (Orser skated to "The Bolt".)
    - 2014 OBM in men's singles (Ten skated to "The Lady and the Hooligan" and "Romance" from The Gadfly)
    - purple Inoue/Baldwin's throw triple axel in the free skate at Turin (to a ridiculous combo of the last movement of Symphony No. 5 and "Romance"), even though they only finished in seventh place
    - purple Babilonia/Gardner's 1980 FS (the last cut of which was the humorous "Apotheosis" of "The Bolt"), even though they never got to skate it in Lake Placid
    - purple Ugh! It's so obvious! How can you forget about ____________?

    No golds that I can recall. I blame Stalin.
