"Randy [Starkman (1960-April 16, 2012)] lived by the same motto as the rest of us. The Olympics isn’t every four years, it’s every single day. He just got it." --Canadian Olympic kayaker Adam van Koeverden
You're right -- Tracy Tanovich/Michael Chau skated to "The Snow Queen Suite" from The Nutcracker in the 2007-08 season when they won the U.S. junior silver medal. I'm blanking on Evora/Ladwig, though -- maybe HeatherC knows?
I'm not HeatherC, but didn't Amanda & Mark skate to the "Pas de Deux?"
Re: other performances of "The Nutcracker," I remember "Nutcracker on Ice" in the mid 1990's (the one with Peggy, Nicole, Todd, & Brian O.). I loved watching Brian O. play the part of Drosselmaier.
Ilia's "Waltz of the Flowers" was terrific!
ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! AND FANTASTIC! AND BEAUTIFUL! AND AWESOME! AND AMAZING! ANDANDANDAND
At one point: "Hey, he looks really super familiar!" *dives into program* OMG IT'S EVGENY PLATOV!
I watched Petrova/Tikhonov's SP from the Olympics & Europeans in 02' last night. I think that was The Nutcracker.
It was my favourite SP that they skated to. I think it was under marked.
