Skaters' children skating?
I thought this would be fun.
Ellen Burka ladies champion Netherlands daughter Petra ladies champion Canada, World champion and Olympic medalist
Nobuo Sato men's champion Japan and wife was a ladies champion, Jampan daughter Yuka, ladies champion Japan, World champion
Marina Zoueva son Fedor Andreev
Igor Shpilband daughter Katia
daughter Ksenia Markova
Artur Dmitriev son Artur
Katia Gordeeva and Ilia Kulik daughter Liza
Lisa daughter Kimberly Navarro
Please add to the list
Ivan Bukin, who won the bronze medal in ice dancing at the JGPF with partner Alexandra Stepanova, is the son of Andrei Bukin.
Marina Klimova is the coach of her son Anthony and his partner, and they won a bronze at US Junior Nationals (juvenile or intermediate, can't remember).
At the rink. Again.
Maribel Vinsen Owen, US Ladies Champion and World Medallist. Maribel, Jr - 1961 US Pairs Champion and Laurence Owen - 1961 US Ladies Champion. All lost their lives in the tragedy of the plane crash.
That one really knocked me over when I learned of it some years ago. And if you ever see videos of Laurence Owen skating (there's at least one YouTube video), it will crack your heart open. She's so light and joyous on the ice. Toller Cranston, who certainly has an eye for artistry, spoke very highly of Laurence in one of his books.

I know that Daria Grinkova, Katia and Sergei's daughter, has stopped skating. I wonder whether Viktor Petrenko's daughter Viktoria is still skating? Like Daria, she appeared on one of Kristi's "friends and family" specials a few years ago. She looked pretty serious and well trained.
At the rink. Again.
Sorry to have cast a pall on the discussion, but so few people (especially younger skaters these days) really KNOW of the 1961 tragedy.
At the rink. Again.

May I introduce? Here's another bright star in skating on her way! OK, right now she's barely on her feet and nobody knows if she'll actually go for it, but her genes are sensational, with Mom and Dad being Olympic Champions! Already a charming little thing, don't you think?
PS:Sorry for being a bit OT!
She is sooo cute! And the genes are awesome, but her dad already said he doesn't want her to be a skater

no mention of Daria Grinkova but a mention of her little sister? too bad... Dasha was fun to watch when she was skating.
Viktoria Petrenko skates(skated?) as well, and was quite good if I remember the buzz a few years back.
2010 North Atlantics Victoria Petrenko withdrew from Intermediate ladies because of illness
Ilia Kulik and Ekaterina Gordeeva's daughter Elizaveta Kulik also skating and in pre juvenile level.
Did they do well, and will they be at Nationals?
