    Torvill and Dean, no doubt about it. They are legends.

    I went with Marina and Gwendal with Torvill and Dean really close in second... No doubt T/D where amazing but I have a soft spot for A/P since I wasnt even born when T/D won the Olympics, whereas I followed A/P very closely.

    I had to choose other. I guess for this vote I was thinking about this past Olympics only and believe that if Dubriel and Lauzon hadn't of gotten injured they would have won a medal and I definately looooove them!

    or are we just going with the country? which is what I used to do because it was how my aunt told me to cheer for... if all you're looking at are the US skaters, you're missing out on some fantastic talent!

    Most of my favorite Ice Dance couples were not Olympic medal winners, so the only choice I'm left with is Klimova&Ponamarenko.

    I have three favorites I think SHOULD have won an Olympic medal - Blumberg&Siebert(US), The Duchenays(France), and Rakomo&Koko(Finland).

    My hands-down favorite couple of all time is Lisa Spitz&Scott Gregory of the U.S. They went to 3 Worlds (82,83,84) and finished 10th at the 84 Olympics.
    Scott Gregory went to the 88 Olympics with his 2nd partner, Suzy Semanick, and I think they finished 6th. Scott Gregory's wife is Kimmie's coach, Pam.

    I really enjoyed their dancing too! Their folk dance sections were very, very entertaining (IMO anyway), particularly their hoedown and Kalinka. I'm glad someone else remembers them.

    BTW, video clips of them can be found at fsvids and rinkside.

    Torvahl and Dean. Pure dance - no histrionics.

    I didn't like all of their numbers but would have to agree Joe.

    My favorite is Navka/Kostomarov. I like Belbin/Agosto and Torvill/Dean too.

    I'm not easily taken by 'passion' over beautiful dancing, Dee. The Duschesnays(sp) now they had passion but it was not the "suffering" kind of Russia but the "sensuous" passion of France.
