    For me, they are defenitely in the top three. They have superb technique and they skate with passion and heart!

    For me, S/Z are the greatest of all time. I've enjoyed watching their development over years - going from tricks r us to true artists on the ice. The personal connection they bring to the ice and being apart of building the China System means that their long-term contribution can't even be determined just yet is awesome for someone imagining the future of the Chinese program.

    Other teams, espcially Gordeeva/Grinkov, are great in their own right - but these two are truly special.

    Oh, I would defiitely not have them as the best pair ever. I wanted them to win this Olympics, for sure, but they've been 'beatable' at all oLympics, including this one where, if P/T had a stronger SP, Z/S would ahve lost.

    My pick is Gordeeva & Grinkov. They changed pairs skating making it more expressive. As parteners they clearly interacted with one another emotionally. For me, G & G were perfection on ice.

    I'll make my list after 2031 when I am sure all the acrobatic lifts will have been presented and the faux romantic sxs skating is just ordinary acting.
