    !0 yrs already, WOW time goes fast. Anyway, I always think about him on november 20th every year... G&G were the greatest pair ever. He was so special, he was very nice and I think that we will always remember him. It feels like it was just a couple of years, it is so fresh in my memory.

    I know, 10 years. An entire decade since the ice was last graced by their skating. And in my honest opinion I don't think skating has ever truly recovered from his loss and pairs skating has still not caught up to G&G in general. Somne pairs have some aspect, some have others but none has the entire package. He was a greater skater, and by all appearances an even greater man and that is really what lies at the heart of this tragedy.

    We still love you Sergei!!

    Godspeed, Sergei!

    I hope there is a wonderful library/skating rink up there! What a great skater he was and a great person, as well.

    Wow.... 10 years already.... what a tragic loss it was for skating. I remember watching the skating tribute to him and just crying through the entire show, especially when Katia took the ice by herself. Daria still looks very much like her dad... especially when she smiles.

    It’s a sad time each year we have this tragic anniversery again. Up to now it’s still hard for me to watch old performances of Katia and Sergej ....

    And I agree, Daria looks so much like her Dad.
