    I'm glad we have tapes of them.

    I think Sale and Pelletier are close in their approach to pair skating, but they're pros now.shdotz
    and S&P are arguably the best Pro Pairs team nowadays. I say that because their technique has improved so much and they show so much versatility in their performances with a variety of music styles.

    Yes, the choreography was by Zueva. I guess to me Katya of '88 is rather like Lipinski - delightful to look at, cheery, bubbly, but not much more than that.

    OUCH!!!

    I would never, ever compare Katia to what's her name. UGH!!

    Katia is a much better skater than L and her joy is real; she's a skater's skater, not a roller skater.
