    Say,I don't know how many we can think of all together here. But I would like to ask you all today what famous Skaters we can think of whos Parents were also Skaters? I know that Alyssa and Amber Czisny's Mother Debbie (Deborah) was at least an Adult Skater. Anybody else?

    If "famous" is defined as skaters who have competed at the Olympics and Worlds, then Ksenia Makarova, who is both a Russian and an American citizen now - her parents are Larisa Selezneva and Oleg Makarov, who won the bronze medal at 1988 Worlds as well as the 1984 Olympics for the former Soviet Union. Here's a recent photo of the family when they became U.S. citizens: http://msnbctv.files.wordpress.com/2...uscis_0615.jpg

    Link to the thread about the children of famous skaters who are competitive skaters today (majority are still lower level): http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...r-not)-Skaters

    Doesn't Artur Dmietriev of Russia (twice World Champion in pairs with Mishkutenak) have a son who is currently competing internationally?

    Yes, but but he's not really "famous" - Dmitriev Jr. is mentioned in the other thread: Children of Notable (or not) Skaters

    Takahiko Kozuka's both parents and grandfather were skaters. His dad was even three-time Japanese Champion and 18th at Olympics. Mom was an ice dancer.

    The singles skaters, Chantelle and Brendan Kerry are trained in part by their mother, Monica MacDonald (who was on the 1988 Australian Olympic team as an ice dancer)

    Ashley Cain's coach and father is Peter Cain, who skated pairs for Australia with his sister, Liz. Liz is a coach and trained her son, Sean Carlow (a world team member three times)

    Was Juta Muller a skater before she became a famous coach (of Katarina Witt)? Her daughter Gabby Seifert (sp?) was competing at the world level, IIRC.

    ^^^ Yes. From Jutta Müller's wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jutta_Müller
    In 1949, she won the East German Championships in double women pair skating with partner Irene Salzmann. This category was created due to the lack of men in Germany after World War II. In 1953, she won the ladies' singles bronze medal at the East German nationals.

    After World War II, Müller became at first a teacher for German and sport. In 1946, she became a member of the SED, the former East German communist party. Later she studied sport at the DHfK Leipzig and since 1955 she is a figure skating coach.
    ...
    Her first student was her own daughter Gabriele Seyfert, who twice won the world championships (1969 and 1970).

    Right, this is the reason why I didn't mention him.

    He is two- time Olympic champion, in 1992 with Mishkutenok, and 1998 with Kazakova.

    Sorry, I transposed this thread's title to read "skaters who have a famous skating parent." Old age strikes again!
