    Those interesting photos in the ISU website...

    I've found some that caught my eye...


    People just seem so friendly!

    http://multimedia.olympic.org/pic/baier_gal_l_05.jpg (1936...Ernst Baier and three members of the British team)

    Torvill and Dean in Lillehammer

    http://multimedia.olympic.org/pic/dean_gal_l_01.jpg

    It's funny that people get wowed whenever Anissina carried Peizerat, since that move has been in the books for years now:

    http://multimedia.olympic.org/pic/dean_gal_l_03.jpg

    I'm glad that people no longer wear tights...

    http://multimedia.olympic.org/pic/sk...g_gal_l_02.jpg

    People have long forgotten the difficulty of a well-performed stag jump (Barbara Ann Scott)

    http://multimedia.olympic.org/pic/sk...g_gal_l_06.jpg

    Who can forget that costume?

    http://multimedia.olympic.org/pic/sk...ig_gal_l_08.jp

    Carol Heiss just looked so cute! Tara Lipinski always reminded me of her for some reason...

    http://multimedia.olympic.org/pic/heiss_gal_l_01.jpg

    What level will Sonja's spiral be nowadays?

    http://multimedia.olympic.org/pic/henie_gal_l_01.jpg

    The first and last time Sonja finished last in the Olympics...

    http://multimedia.olympic.org/pic/henie_gal_l_03.jpg

    From first...

    http://multimedia.olympic.org/pic/boitano_gal_l_02.jpg

    to 6th...

    http://multimedia.olympic.org/pic/boitano_gal_l_01.jpg

    http://multimedia.olympic.org/pic/boitano_gal_l_05.jpg

    Before Tarasova...

    http://multimedia.olympic.org/pic/yagudin_gal_l_05.jpg

    I wish he was still skating...

    http://multimedia.olympic.org/pic/curry_gal_l_01.jpg

    They both looked so young!

    http://multimedia.olympic.org/pic/petrenko_gal_l_10.jpg

    This one interests me because of what Ernst Baier of Germany is doing during the 1936 Olympics medal ceremony...(Baier won the silver in the men's and the gold in the pairs)

    Ahem. Lambiel is a nice guy and a good skater - but he is miles away from Curry imho.

    I agree. All of the guys who've come after Curry have been miles away.

    Here's a nice photo of John with his gold medal...

    I just had to agree. There is just no one like John Curry or, for that matter, Toller Cranston. It always struck me as unfortunate that they had to compete against each other.

    It's eleven years since he passed now, right?

    Ten years in November since Sergei Grinkov passed...

    I dont think think this was a lift like A/P's. She just lifted him for 2 seconds.

    That's so very creepy. (And to think people in the US made a big deal about the 68 black power salute.) I'm going to research more on him. I wonder if he ended up serving in Der Fuerher's army.

    And considering that John Curry died so young of AIDs, it's a bit rude to say, Well, I'll just watch Lambiel instead. That's like saying Laurence Owen was good, but at least we DID get to watch a lot of Janet Lynn. :frown2:

    I think the reason OIC (not just US) made a big deal of it was precisely to avoid embarassing pictures like this in the future...

    Yeah that was Albertville. It was Michkoutienok and Dmitriev. She played a cloud, and he played a hunter, or something like that.
