    Trivia


    "What two ladies Olympic GM were related?"

    I believe Anett Poetzsch(?) was married to Katarina Witt's brother, Axel. So, I would imagine sister-in-laws count. Does anyone know if they are still married?

    "Who won the 1st & only Women's Oly medal for the USSR? Well, tough question. I think they ask for Oksana Baiul in 1994 but I'd say she didn't compete for the USSR but started under an international flag."

    1) Kira Ivanova won the bronze in 1984, that is the correct answer I believe.
    2) Irina won the silver in 2002, making her the second and last. The question was probably written before SLC.
    3) Oksana skated for the Ukrain as did Patrenko in 94. Maybe you were thinking of Patrenko in 92 who won Gold under the heading of "United Team".
