All teddy bears are of author's work, not a serial production. All are different and look like (maybe a bit) skaters awarded.

^ Thanks, AlexRus. Maybe they should change the thread title. So many skaters got the same reward, why only one of them should be "highlighted". Btw, that forum has a little more than 2,000 registered users.

Good point, let's talk. I changed it.
The teddy bears are cute!
The Russian fans have always been passionate, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about this sport. Seeing how they were able to put together the 2011 Worlds in such a short notice speaks volume about their commitment for this sport, up to the level of their country's top political leader.

I am sure he wants to carry this record into Sochi.

It's nice that both Meryl & Charlie and Tessa & Scott got awards!
Just to be more clear. That "Russian forum" is not really Russian, because you can't say any nice things about Russian skaters there, you will be the troll.

Russian fans are really rare there, but you can see many journalists, specialists and so on. It is very similar to Golden skate, but in Russian. The difference from GFS is they still have mentality of the iron curtain. I have seen they ban people all the time for nothing, especially really Russian fans, who admaire rissian skater.
So don’t be mislead about Russian fans love for Chan, many of them don’t even live in Russia, or do that because they hate Plushenko, Gachinski, and every Russian skaters.
Hard to believe, but that is my view.
Skater who looks the most like his bear: Charlie White.
You are absolutely correct. I hope they will change the name of the anti-Russian skaters forum.
