    I guess it helps if you were invited to all of them, and have a long career
    Are you asking whether there is anyone who had a full and undefeated season in an Olympic year, winning fall GP events, GP final, continental championships, Olympics, Worlds, and their own nationals all in the same year?

    Or are you asking whether there is anyone who won all of the above, including all the possible individual fall GP events, at some point during their career? (obviously not all in the same season since no skater is allowed to compete in six GPs the same year)

    Either way, the possibilities are limited if you're looking for both Olympic gold and Grand Prix/Four Continents golds, since the GP and 4Cs have only been around for a little over a decade (decade and a half counting the "Champions Series" 1996-98), and there have only been 4 Olympics held during that period.

    And Cup of China has only been around since 2003. Would you allow Yagudin or other 1990s or 2002 Olympic champs who won everything else, should such a skater exist, to substitute the German GP event under whatever name it was called that year?

    How about if they won one of the current GP events in the early 1990s before there was a GP?

    Not in the same year, just in their whole career. I was only curious with current or newly retired, within the last 10 years or so. Even if you only count when Bofrost was replaced for Cup of China, that still spans two Olympics.

    S/Z won them all, S/S are close and so is Kim Yu-na but South Korea doesn't have nationals.

    Yamaguchi never competed at Euros. Are you counting US nationals (92) for her?

    I'm sure there are more skaters, but this is all that comes to mind right now.
    Actually all 4 OGM in 1992 also won Worlds that year (Kristi, Petrenko, Mish/Dmitriev & Klimova/Ponomarenko. It used to pretty standard for Worlds to be a coronation of the new Olympic Champion, before 1994.

    In 94 it was only Grishuk/Platov and since then few OGM have even gone to the following Worlds.
