    Very old videos of current coaches as skaters

    I found this very old video of Tatiana Tarasova as a pairs skater. I had never seen her skating.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDeDqBWk0LY

    Here are a few more coaches that skated in the past:


    Tamara Moskvina-Alexei Mishin:

    So slim! Any idea how old she is? Seems young and unsure of herself.

    She was good! Great carriage I thought, and killer death spiral. Funny how simple lifts were in those days - barely held a position, no changes.

    What fun, thanks for posting!

    Priscilla Hill Competing at US Nationals and 1978 and 1982 Worlds are on YouTube - for some reason I can't copy the links.

    Indeed! The feat they perform these days are amazing and so demanding on the body. But this does not take away the beautiful skating of the old-timers.
    Thanks Vash01.

    Navka/Morozov FD at 1998 Olympics skated almost entirely on 2 feet. Navka is extremely thin with short brown hair. They look like they borrowed Torvill/Dean's Bolero costumes.

    Along the same line, their OD that year: http://youtu.be/NiqO7qstzSY

    (on a side note, I had no idea Zhulin choreographed and/or coached for Navka & Morozov as well)

    That's their EX at 1965 Europeans.
    Her partner was Georgi Proskurin.
