    That is a neat pic because the background almost matches her shirt so it looks like she is just holding up a piece of glass to her shirt while wearing the medal. :lol:

    Thanks for posting this. I always wonder what skaters do with their medals. How did you get to take these photos, are you friends with her?

    It would just be nice to see her do something else.

    It was a thrill to see the medals and her Olympic costumes. Yes, I'm good friends with Oksana. This was last week at her place before heading to the show at Elmsford.

    Great photo. She sounds like she is pretty down to earth and fun.

    A friend of mine skated in the gay games to swan lake, complete with tutu. The best bit was when he was blowing the feathers he had on the shoulder of his costume off his face.

    I think I see you on her FB a lot, Tim. At least she mentions a Tim a lot.

    So do Byzantine (formerly Greek) Catholics. I've always crossed myself right shoulder first.

    Tim: glad to see in the photo that she finally got the medal back. Didn't Galina take it and have it for years?

    I remember reading years ago that after the awards ceremony, Galina put Oksana's medal on and was showing it off (and bragging about it being hers). Don't know if that's really true. I do, however, remember, an interview with Oksana after she had broken away from Galina, where she mentioned that Galina had kept her medal. It was not long after their parting of ways, and at the time, Oksana seemed unsure of how to get it back.

    Again, old recollection, not sure I'm fully correct here.

    I've always heard Oksana's Olympic ex referred to as "The Dying Swan" like the one legendary ballerina Anna Pavlova did:

    The Dying Swan (originally The Swan) is a ballet choreographed by Mikhail Fokine in 1905 to Camille Saint-Saëns's cello solo Le Cygne from Le Carnaval des Animaux as a pièce d'occasion for the ballerina Anna Pavlova.

    As of today, August 29 - Monday, she has exceeded the amount of friends she can have - so Oksana started her official FB fan page :oksana1:

    Yeh, just like Evan Lysacek's & Brian Boitano's when it goes beyond 4500 it stops adding ppl.

    Yes after the show, we had a brief photo shoot for a special event.

    Is she a naturalized citizen of the USA? If so, when did she naturalize? (enquiring minds want to know :lol:)
