    When I was watching the Olympic ceremonies, I heard the song "Chariots of Fire" earlier.. I remember that some skaters did programs to it, but I can't remember who. Can someone please enlighten me as to who did? Thanks!!

    I think Abitbol and Bernadis used it in 1998.

    Linda Fratianne skated a LP to it at the World Pro.

    I thought it was a pairs team, that's probably what I was thinking of.

    Steven Cousins used it for an Olympic-themed program in 1994, but it doesn't really include the famous part of the score.

    I think Scott Hamilton used to do a show number to Abraham's Theme. The best song on the album as far as I'm concerned. Very voidy. Kinda makes you want to be in the ice right now.

    Mandy Wotzel and Axel Rauchenbach used it for the slow section of their silver medal - winning free skate at the 1989 European Championships.

    I am pretty sure Peggy Flemming and Robin Cousins skated together to it at least once.

    Linda Fratianne skating to Chariots of Fire. In this clip Linda is wearing the dress that many people say Michelle Kwan later got as a hand-me-down, but I don't think it's the exact same dress. I think Michelle's dress was based on this dress rather than the two dresses being the same.
