    1. Evgeny Plushenko (That's why he can perform so well at high altitude locations!)
    2. Hmm...Alexander Abt?
    3. Vakhtang Murvanidze. Also Ludmilla Nelidina.

    I was wondering if this thread was going to be approved.

    1. unless you mean me.
    2. I think Sasha
    3. pertaining to ones that made it but didn't win?

    And do we now need to come up with 2 or 3 new questions if we answer them? Will you be back to see if we got them correct?

    Well, number 3 could be almost anyone really, but Michelle Kwan was who popped into my mind first.
    Number 2 was Sasha, I think.
    Number 1 was probably Evgeni Plushenko.

    I don't think we can count Michelle Kwan for number three, because she won the very first Grand Prix Final in Paris in 1996 -- only in those days it was called the Champions Series instead of the Grand Prix and it had the Sparkassen Cup from Germany instead of Cup of China.

    Irina Slutskaya was second and Josee Chouinard was third. For the men, Alexei Urmanov edged Elvis Stoiko for the gold.

    Now I'll do one: Which skaters won both the ISU World Championship and the World Professional Championship (Landover) in the same year. (I can think of three.)

    I believe Michelle won World Championship and World Pro in the same year. Her only appearance at World Pro's.

    Another 'guess' would be Kristi.

    Michelle and Kristi are right. The other one I was thinking of was Alexei Yagudin, the same year as Michelle. Any others?

    The answer to number 2, 3 is correct. Congratulation to those who answer it correctly. Evgeni nose is still small compare to someone else hehe, so please make more guess hehe

    I can't believe everybody got the #2 answer that easily

    In an interview around the time he got married, Evgeny said he didn't used to like his nose, but his fiance told him it was his most handsome feature, so now he likes it.

    Now here's a bit of Golden Skate trivia: For a brief time we once had a poster named "Esongib" (get it? Haha.) IIRC Esongib was banned for violating the guidelines against bashing skaters on the basis of physical characteristics, etc.
