    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    I remember a Oksana/Pasha Grishuk piece (during the '98 Olympics I think) where it was strongly implied she was copying Oksana Baiul, right down to Baiul's "The Feeling Begins" music from her exhibition. I think Pasha/Oksana called Baiul 'a criminal' in the piece which cracked me up. On the other hand, don't know if Oksana Baiul has ever been accused of adulterous affairs with married men ala Pasha...

    You mean Japanese Weir and his Swan Lake? Yuzuru Hanyu? Yeah they are pretty similar, but Hanyu has the potential to be way better than Johnny ever was.

    Many thought Vasiliev tried to make TT/MM out of MM/MT, esp. their first year together.
    Some find a lot of similarity between Crone/Poirier and Duchesnay team this season.

    Didn't people think that Joubert had stolen Yagudin's style at some point?

    Sarah Hughes' re-worked ending to her Oly LP was totally a rip-off of Kwan's Sher that year. She stole it after seeing it work for MK at '02 Nats.

    To me, it was more like Yags gave that style to him since he coached him for a little while there.

    I think I remember that there was some N. Korean skater who attempted copying Yagudin's Man in the Iron Mask move for move.

    No there was a chinese skater with the otonal music in Gp, i dont remember his name.
    Hanyu doesnt remind me of Weir except for costume design maybe which was Weir's.

    With and Yagudin Joub I used to find the Morozov steps similar, but nothing else, although last year's sp from costume to choreo was reminding a lot MITIM. Especially the sphere thing and the beginning.

    I thought that came pretty soon after Yags was forced to retire and someone watched a training session with Tarasova and Joubert where basically, she created a programme for Yags and Yags would show Joubert how to do it.

    Appearance wise there was a period where it looked like Kristin Fraser was copying Tanith.

    I honestly don't think Weir's programs are that much like Galindo's.

    Last year, I thought Pernelle Carron and Lloyd Jones' (can't remember if it was the OD or FD, but I think FD) resembled Bourne and Kraatz's Riverdance a bit too much.

    I also think maybe Coomes and Buckland were trying to channel B & K at some points.

Julie Lynn Holmes certainly was packaged to look like Peggy but when I watch her skating I don't see too much similarity in skating style.
    And let's not forget Fassi student Manuela Ruben (GER) as Fratianne clone -- exact same cut of music in CARMEN and hair/dress/style -- during the 83/84 season.

    I think that is kind of crazy for a skater to say someone stole their style. Who said they own it?

    As far as Rudy coming out during his competitive career, I don't remember that. I remember he dodged the subject during interviews after he won '96 nationals saying that wasn't relevant to his skating. He was castigated for it in the gay press. He then came out publicly. However, at that point he was 26 and it was pretty much a given that he would retire after that season.

    This one really bugs me, because both of Paul/Islam's programs this year seem like copycats of Virtue/Moir's, especially the FD.

    Wow! I had never seen that video! But Linichuk did their choreography too! And she gave Huang & Zheng DomShab's waltz too this year
    Running out of ideas maybe?

    I thought so too, especially when Fraser/Lukanin skated to Shadrista in 07-08.

    Seems like B/K or Morozov were also impressed with G/P when making their outfits for the 2003 FD.
    I also find them being influenced by F-P/M 2000-2001 FD costumes.
