    Please ID Skater In These Pics For Me...*DONE*

    need some help here...these are from my collection...I know there's been a problem with sources so as soon as someone helps me out I will remove the image links. I hope it's OK for the moment though...Need to know because I'm sorting out old photos tossed in Misc. now that I have dedicated folders to some new skaters now.


    *Both pics ID'ed and thus deleted. Thanks guys!*

    The 2nd shot appears to be Ashley Wagner. I don't know about the 1st.

    Thanks...after doing closer analysis (comparison with a pic of Ashley) it does seem to be her (same shape nose, similar shape teeth, similar color eyes). The pics aren't high enough resolution for me to be 100% sure but I think I'm 85-90% sure it's her. I moved the pic to her folder. I'll leave the pic in the post though so I can get a second opinion...

    The first one is still fair game.

    Agree on Ashley Wagner for sure on number 2. Here is her official picture on the USFS site.

    Here is a shot I scanned out of an industrial supply catalog. Who is this girl taking orders over the phone?

    You've never heard of 2002 Olympic gold medalist Elena Berezhnaya?

    To me, it doesn't look like her at all, but if the person that ID'ed her has seen her in that costume, then it can't be disputed! I would have said it looks more like Alijona S, but I have no idea!

    If there is confusion I will put the photo back up again. I don't think it is Aliona Savchenko(sp?) (is that who you are referring to?) because I have hi-res photos of her and this skater does not seem to have her face (or body type) at all. Could be wrong, though.
