    If one skater (Hamilton) used the golf club as prop, it should not spoil the level of other male competitors who skated. E.g. Ilia did not use any props and had great programmes in previous Ice Wars. And definetely I don´t wish to see Urmanov and his costumes (the bra one and the one where he is wearing harem trousers and has a bald head...).

    All Oly champs, and all with a controversial win over a North American to boot! (Viktor/Paul, Oksana/Nancy, Ilia/Elvis, B&S/S&P) (Well, maybe not Ilia/Elvis) [/QUOTE]

    There was nothing contraversial in Ilia´s win over Elvis in Nagano Olympics! Elvis was third in the freeskate.

    Substitute Midori and Brian Orser with Katarina and Kurt and you just named the team lineup for the very first Ice Wars back in 1994! :D

    I'm still hoping one more woman will be added to each team before the event takes place: If Nancy's still skating (I don't know where I got the idea she retired altogether!), I don't see why she can't be added to the North American team. And with Yuka now added to this year's SOI cast, hopefully she'll be added to Ice Wars this year as well--the world team needs at least one token non-former Soviet Union skater in order to reduce all those inevitable "Cold War" references the commentators are sure to make, don't you think?

    "There was nothing contraversial in Ilia´s win over Elvis in Nagano Olympics! "

    I agree when talking about the FS, or overall result.

    I do however remember the entire Sky Rink fuming after the SP with "Elvis wuz robbed!" venum.

    Unfortunately for Ilia, I think a lot of people carry the Urmanov thing over to Elvis's second silver. Not saying I agree, just telling how I perceive many NA fans feel.

    Yes, that must be national bias... Even in Lillehammer Elvis was not even close of winning the freeskate. From Nagano I have got tapes from different countries, and I don´t think that any of the commentators thought that it was Elvis who should have won the short programme. On the other hand even if he would have won the short programme, he would not have won the freeskate. The international judges though don´t easily put Elvis on 1st place (because of his presentation), if they have some other possibility.
