Another G&P fan here.
I voted for Torvill & Dean, but Gritshuk & Platov and Anissina & Peizeral are really big favourites of mine, also.
I voted for Jayne and Chris... it is my regret that Povilas and Rita did not get to accomplish a medal in the olympics... I thought they were always undermarked... :-(
I voted other because I have 2 favorites not listed: Minnie & Mo (Moiseeva & Minenkov), & Blumberg & Seibert.
In my younger days ,,i was heavily into watching figure skating,,i had my favorites in each category. But the most moving and romantic performance I'll never forget is 1992 Winter Olympics with Klimova & Ponomarenko,,,just wish i could find the music,,which is in the new Ford Five Hundred commercial.
since it only said "favorite medal performance" and did not designate, I would have to include My personal favorite...Colleen O’Connor & Jim Millns in the bronze medal performance of the 1976 olympics. That performance was one of the best examples of a team relating to each other on the ice that I've witnessed. Even though Torville and Dean would be deemed, most likely, to be superior skaters, O'Connor and Millns had a connection that Jane and Chris did not achieve until later in their professional careers.

I picked Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean.
There is no doubt that Torvill/Dean are still the best Ice Dancers. They remain the standard for all to follow

I have the bad habit of loving all ice dancers, but if I have to pick:
1. Torvill & Dean
2. Klimova & Ponomarenko
3. Usova & Zhulin
5. O'Connor & Millns
6. Pakhamova and Gorshkov
And if I can include non-medallists at Olys, I loved Blumberg & Siebert and Rahkamo and Kokko and Annenko & Sretensky!
Although I liked many of G&P's performances, I always felt Memorial was mailed in as to choreography-all those Besti squats. I far prefer their Feeling begins program.
I voted for Marina and Gwedel. I always liked their programs.
I went with Marina and Gwendal closely followed by G&P. Both amazing teams.
Colleen O'Connor & Jim Milnes got me interested in the first place, oh soooo many years ago. They did a gorgeous waltz to Send in the Clowns, as I recall.
Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto.
Irina Lobacheva/Ilia Averbuh! So sorry that they never got gold !
