It is odd. Plus not to show up as a coach somewhere, somehow, even if his health did not allow competitive skating.

It appears that Evy and Mary Scotvold liked to recycle moves from skater to skater.
Sandy Lenz pre-dated Nancy Kerrigan's program-ending spiral by 10+ years!

Sorry. Wrong link. What a scatterbrain I am. Here's the right one.

Does anyone have the BBC Euro coverage of the V&M gold medal skate?
I really want to hear what Robin Cousins said about them?
I guess YT can't put it up yet right?

Dittos. I wonder if we can set up codes here for youtube vids such that they aren't found under the skaters names. I'd love to see ANY of the eurosport coverage.

I watched the BBC2 coverage of the Free Dance. Robin Cousins was totally exhilarated by Tessa and Scott's gold, I've rarely heard such high praises from a commentator. He said it was the highlight of these Olympics for him and one of the most beautiful moments that he has ever witnessed in his career. He compared Tessa/Scott to Torvill/Dean and said that "the Canadians have found their Bolero". He was also delighted with how Davis/White skated and praised them as well. I absolutely loved his commentary.

Does anyone know where I can find vid of JoRo's "Summertime" exhibition. (Not the later SP.) I was mentioning it on another board but couldn't find any example to link to, on youtube or anywhere. TIA for help.

This Summertime is from 2008 Ice Gala in Italy.

The footage from 1973 Worlds is so freaking epic. Irina Rodnina, scorned, musicless, and with an inexperienced partner, winning a World Championship by an act of sheer will.

I had never seen this M&D gem before, from the 1990 Worlds:
So many things to love: the beautiful arch of the classic death spiral. Natalia's head seems to be close to touching the ice. Natalia's beautiful, centered, fast spins (Artur couldn't keep up). Their spirals. The lovely, understated elegance of the program. Love, love, love, and at the same time puts me in a million depressions that we will never see a skater like Natalia M. again.

At Euros in Sofia 1991 M/D did CanCan as an SP. Afterward, the judges advised them against using that program again and they never did. I tried for years to get a tape of it but was never successful.

Tamara used Swan Lake for all of her top Russian pairs. B&S were the best at it though.

From the sublime to the ridiculous:
Is this the worst eligible G&G program ever made? Has to go under the "wtf were they thinking?" file. I've also never seen Katia fall out of a death spiral, and for them to skate so sluggishly. I don't think we ever saw this monstrosity again.
04-11-2010, 06:11 PM
Weeell, they did skate this program once again at 1990 Worlds, still wearing "unlucky" green, but no mistakes this time.
