    To be honest though, with the exception of her treatment of G/P and that whole Yuri Balkov scandal afterwards, I do think casken's analysis of her commentary is what almost every poster here would be guilty of.

    IIRC, Wilson said in one of her comments ('92 Olys, I think), that she'd been Maya Usova's bridesmaid... Maybe, this relationship had an impact on her attitude towards some others around that time in general and Grichuk in particular...

    Wow, I didn't know that. I could see why she would dislike Grishuk if she is friends with Usova.

    I didn't know that either... that explains a lot! I wonder how they became such good friends. Per wiki, U&Z were married in 1986, and they weren't competing at major international comps by then (in fact, they didn't go to Worlds until after Wilson & McCall turned pro).

    o/t but it also says Usova has appeared in many ads for Marlboro in Russia (no source)... is that true or was that esta?

    Ah, well that would explain it. I think "being Maya Usova's bridesmaid" ought to be a rep!

    Looking through old results, I see that Usova & Zhulin were competing internationally at non-championship-level events at least since Prague Skate in November 1983.

    But not as far as I can see at any of the same fall events as Wilson & McCall. So I don't know where they would have met during Wilson's competitive career.

    Some sort of training camp?
