    Those two were not out when they won their respective championships. So they don't count




    Now if I am correct both Takahashi and Abbott are "now" out! So...


    Go get them boys!

    Daisuke is gay?
    Not sure why I'm surprised, I just don't recall any direct statement from him
    I guess is one of those things everyone "in the know" knows but doesn't really talk about.

    I find it ironic that Morozov pits Plushenko's masculine, hairy, swaggering, unmistakably straight skating style against the presently favored elegant, lacy, balletic, queer crowd, yet the skater who ended up winning Olympics over Plush marketed himself as an anti-balletic, unmistakably straight, giant-balls guy. Rrrrrawrrrr!

    Huh? You're joking, right? (Tho I guess he marketed himself that way)

    Anyway, I take his (Morozov's) comment to have nothing to do with sexual orientation, but, instead, context.

    It's changing though.

    In 2010, Gay =north american male skater without quad

    In 2011, Gay=north american skater with skating skills, choreography, and transitions, has quad

    So, the comments about PCS are clearly not true, but I guess interesting to think about. (Side note - it reminds me of this quote from the completely un-pc and words-not-safe-for-work Lutz Chat http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QC-koOpiKs&t=1m11s ).

    It got me thinking about the uncontested leader in men's PCS -- Patrick Chan. I don't particularly think he skates in a gay way. Am I wrong/do people think his skating is effeminate? (not that that's equated with gay but I think Morozov is equating the two)

    There are also several examples of "straight-skating" skaters (by my imagination of what Morozov means) who have or had great PCS, including Michael Weiss.

    I think you are a legit contender for a World Gold Medal, and you aren't Yags, Plush or a Morosov student, then, by Morosov's definition, you are GAY

    I wonder what he thinks of Gachinski, having been tainted by Tom Dickson a few seasons ago and this season.

    Hmmm, after seeing a few videos I have to wonder about Alexei Rogonov and Nodari Maisuradze but I really think they are just good friends. The facial hair on Klimov has me concerned but not enough to think he was gay. Vera Bazarova and Yuri Larionov are dating, Konstantin Bezmaternikh is dating Alexander Enbert partner, Enbert has a girlfriend as does Trankov and Smirnov is married.

    So...I don't know enough about the dancers although they are all really cute I should want to learn more and as far as men go Artur Gachinski has me thinking but he is still young.

    Mens skating is too physical across all disciplines to worry if someone is gay. unless you are trying to pick them up in a bar or something. An athlete is an athlete.

    Seriously? Probably not very many. Most NCAA women's sports require a completely different body type from figure skating. Gymnastics and diving are the only two I can think of off hand that would be easy for a girl with a figure skater's body to do well in. Certainly not rowing or basketball.

    I'd never heard that Daisuke was gay, let alone out. Source, please?

    I remember someone on FSU mentioning that Jeremy was with Massimo Scali, but even that I don't think was ever officially verified. I wish it would be, though, because Jeremy and Massimo would make for one hot couple.

    Don't worry about Morozov, Mishin has his ideas of Gay Style and how a male skater should "come out of the closet" (literally)....
