    Retired Skaters Fan Fest

    Have news to share about a retired skater without a thread of their very own? Find yourself watching a program from 20 years ago and thinking 'holy crap, that's better than anything anyone has done in the past 4 years?' Share it here!

    To get us started, last night I watched Marina Anissina & Gwendal Peizerat's 200- World Championships FD to Carmina Burana, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDNPtUXd8mE IMO one of the best ice dances of all time.

    Who else has something to share?

    Since the subject has been brought up in the Rostelecom Cup Pairs thread, I'd like to commemorate Sergei Grinkov, a great skater passed away too soon:

    Gordeeva/Grinkov 1988 FP and 1994 FP

    That 1988 FP is one of my favorites ever. The expression on her face toward the end is just SO joyful, it's impossible not to smile along!

    Since the thread "request translations" is already archivised I'll ask here: can anyone translate or do a summary of THIS interview with Tomas Verner? Pretty please

    Bonus: https://www.instagram.com/p/BBew1_WO...ome_oberstdorf Reason I love him to death

    Thanks to Perdita who kindly provided a link to translation: http://fs-gossips.com/tomas-verner-d...your-thinking/
    I'm very glad to hear he is happy with his life after retiring and I hope that one way or another he will stay involved in coaching, he's got great attitude towards children
