    3. Usova/Zhulin - Russia
    4. Navka/Kostomarov - Russia
    5. Krylova/Ovsiannikov - Russia
    6. Domnina/Shabalin - Russia
    7,8. Anisina/Peizerat - France
    8,7. Virtue/Moir - Canada (I prefer V/M)
    9. Denkova/Staviski - Bulgaria (for representing a small federation. Could have been Rakhamo/ Kokko, or Drobiazko/Vanagas though)
    10. Duchesnay/Duchesnay - France - (only for their programmes. Would not have even made my top 50 list, if it was about skating skills)

    Hmmm let's see:

    1. K&P
    2. U&Z
    then the rest who have been mentioned above but in no particular order - too hard to decide.
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    I agree! Then, Evgeny Platov would have definitely made my list. Sorry to her fans, but I can't stand Pasha.

    It's too hard to make a definite order, so here are my top 10 in no particular order. Well, it might end up being kind of chronological based on years of competition.

    Klimova & Ponomarenko
    Grishuk & Platov
    Usova & Zhulin
    Duschesnay & Duschesnay
    Anissina & Peizerat
    Krylova & Ovsiannikov
    Belbin & Agosto
    Bourne & Kraatz
    Virtue & Moir
    Navka & Kostomarov

    Honourable mentions:
    Denkova & Staviyski (at first I had them on the list, but then I realized I forgot N&K!)
    Delobel & Schoenfelder
    Davis & White
    Lobacheva & Averbukh
    Fusar-Poli & Margaglio
    Drobiazko & Vanagas
    Dubreuil & Lauzon

    It's either a very big ice rink, or there's a lake under there.

    These are my top 3 for their creativity...

    1 Denkova/Staviyski (I lurve to death their 2006 worlds Adagio FD)
    2 Duchesnay/Duchesnay
    3 Krylova/Ovsyannikov (1999 worlds African Dance FD was just brilliant)
    ...
    4 Grishuk/Platov
    5 Anissina/Peizerat
    6 Virtue/Moir

    The rest...I'll have to think about.
