Such a sweet picture of Oksana and Skyler Marie Grace, and a wonderful, down-to-earth interview. She seems to be very happy and at peace with her life. Thank you for sharing it.

So is she actually called Oksana these days?

Love that the article has the same photo of the pose that gave us the !
Glad to hear Oksana is doing well.
I don't know if the person who has that site reads here but in case they do I have a bit of unsolicitied constructive criticism I find the font really distracting. It's the second time I've followed a link here on FSU to an interview on that site and I couldn't finish either because the leftward slant on your font actually bothers my eyes.
I'm aware they obviously like the font they chose but just thought I'd mention it as I assume someone who does this wants people to read. I may be in the minority but I imagine not the only one who reacts negatively to the fonts.
Tessa and Scott: Thank you
She sounds like a really proud mom! And it's refreshing to see an interview with a Russian skater who actually enjoys living in the US. I do wish she were doing something more than coaching. The Dancing on Ice show proved that she's still in amazing shape and very creative.
Thanks for posting. Nice to hear that she is happy and enjoying life.
When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.
The article didn't mention whether or not she is married. Is she?

Well it certainly got her noticed
She still holds the record for TWO olympic golds
So who's gonna beat that ? V/M maybe ?
She was an amazing skater, but always rubbed me the wrong way as a person. Well, good to see she's happy.
Grishuk and Platov are the only ice dancers with two Olympic gold medals.
Ice dance has only been in the Olympics since 1976, so eventually someone will equal it, but Grishuk and Platov will always be the first.
Times New Roman, which is a widely used standard font that is favored by many online newspapers because it's supposed to be easy to read. And other than the lead in paragraph, none of it is in italics. I'm curious - what does the font look like to you? (Wondering whether your browser might be somehow showing something different.)
