    Freestyle Skaters who have also done Pairs Skating.

    Say,I don't know if we ever have talked about this. But I'm interested to know how many Freestyle Skaters we can think of who do Freestyle most of the time have also done Pairs Skating? For example. I know Jennifer Don has done Pairs. But the majority of the time she's a Freestyle Skater. Anyone else?

    Rachael Flatt, too.

    The other night I dreamed I did a death spiral--filling in for another pair skater at our rink. . . very very weird.

    Johnny Weir competed in juvenile pairs along with single skating when he first started. He and his partner were the South Atlantic Regional Champions and placed 4th in the 1997 Junior Olympics.

    From Wikipedia:

    At the same time, Wylie was competing in pair skating with partner Dana Graham. They won the junior pairs title at the 1980 U.S. nationals. They were coached by John Nicks, commuting to work with him in California. They placed eighth in the senior division at the 1981 U.S. nationals, but then dissolved their partnership when they lost financial sponsorship.

    Kyoko Ina competed in singles - she was the Japanese Junior champion and US Junior champion. She finished fourth in Seniors in 1995.

    Yes, she skated in singles until 1998 or so. She was the Japanese silver medalist in 1994 and bronze medalist in 1998, I think.

    ETA: She finished 18th at the 94 Olympics.
