    Since it is a game about the Olympics mainly I dont think T&D should have beaten G&P (2 time gold medalists) nor K&P (3 time medalists). All 3 are all time greats though.

    I thought it was about the champions themselves, not the Olympics. ^

    There were no rules. Some people voted on actual Olympic performances/records, others voted for overall career performances and still others voted for their favorites (or against their non-favorites).

    My own opinion: Virtue/Moir in 9th (last) seems wrong to me. I would have had them a couple of places higher and I would have ranked Linichuk/Karponossov last. Other than that, I must say...

    What an incredible podium!!

    Torvill & Dean have an excellent Olympic record though.

    5th in 1980
    Gold in 1984
    Bronze in 1994 10 years later.

    They completely dominated in 1984 and arguably would have dominated post 1984 if they wanted to as well. And we know they're good because 10 years later they were back at a level as good as anyone.

    And neither of those others dancers received perfect 6.0s either nor are they as iconic.

    I agree with the winners but I think V/M should have been ranked above L/K and N/K.

    Excellent but not as much as:

    G/P- 4th, gold, gold

    or

    K/P- bronze, silver, gold

    and I agree they could have easily stayed in and won in 88, and I would have expected them to at the time, but it was their choice not to. Yamaguchi could have probably won 5 or 6 Worlds in a row and the 94 Olympics, and Fleming probably could have won 7 Worlds in a row and the 72 Olympics, but they dont get credit for doing that.

    I do think T/D might be the best dance team ever, just not the greatest Olympic team ever. Anyway I am confused at the inconsistency. It isnt all about medals or Olympic results fine, but if it is about skating as opposed to Olympics wins or medals then why on earth is Katarina Witt on the verge of winning the ladies. Due to her superior quality of skating and not her 2 Olympic Golds. It seems people flucuate on what is important in the voting.

    As is the case with pretty much any poll on the FSU boards.

    I think the results of the top 3 are correct. I am not a fan of Grishuk, but you can't argue 2 Olympic golds, even if I disagree about the one they won in 1994.

    IMHO T&D and K&P are the two greatest ice dance teams in history, but T&D get the slight edge from me because of how they advanced the sport between 1980 and 1984. And all perfect scores for presentation at the Olympics Games? Unheard of until they came along.
