    Thank you so much for posting all these, vivika1982 and thank you, Cherub721, for the Elena and Nikita vids! I had heard about the Elena solo dance vid, but could never find it, so I really appreciate you posting it!

    Vivika1982 - you must have a lot of time on your hands to dig all these out which we all appreciate very much
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    Thanks Vivika1982 for the vids. This is the time to sit back to watch the old vids to check out how far the current skaters have 'changed' or 'grown'.

    This is really interesting to see that those skaters were already so good at such a young age. So, even if you don't like their style, it's easy to see they were super talented !

    Well we appreciate your insomnia then. There are some real gems amongst them. I have posted a couple of them on our skating club's Facebook page for others to see.

    Just goes to show that with skaters like Plushenko they are freaks.

    Pretty amazing that Miki had only been skating for 7 seven years in 2002. Incredible talent.

    The 1st time I ever noticed Irina S was in 1996...she looked so different in 1993. She was good for her age but there was no hint of the powerhouse to come. I saw most of these performances at the time they occurred but I've enjoyed the stroll down memory lane today. I had forgotten how much I loved Kristi & Rudy and how much Rudy was the one to watch in that twosome. He was so elegant. I (of course) enjoyed seeing Michelle again in her debut at senior nat's in 1993. Was that Irina Rodnina in the K&C with her?
