Kostner's Riders on the Storm
Kostner's choreography and musical interpretation in her 2007-8 short program:
- excellent on both counts
- serviceable choreography, adequately interpreted
- The whole thing is a major WTF for me, given the lyrics of the song by The Doors.

the greatest 1-2-3 finish in ladies' singles at a national championship:
1968: Fleming, Noyes, and Lynn

Does Kwanita have a double Lutz?
Jamie Sale/David Pelletier
Elena Berezhnaya/Anton Sikharulidze
