    Is there a good source of a summary which describes what Yagudin has been up to during the years since Salt Lake? He has had quite obvious opportunities to go in many different directions, and am wondering what exciting paths he has passed through. Thank you.

    I may be wrong, but IIRC it was the move which starts from 4:17: Alexei literally sliding on ice with his one hand, so that can be regarded as 'a fall', I think. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rwy-pNScPA4
    I don't know whether or not he was actually 'penalized' for this move, in accordance with ISU's rules back then, though.

    Sooo sad hip injuries pushed Alexei to retirement at such an early age from competitive skating...

    I hope he doesn't retire from show skating anytime soon, I want to see him skate again - it's been 9 years.

    I don't think he will retire very soon, he seems to enjoy show skating very much. I just hope he'll skate in more shows in Europe, not only Russia and Asia.

    I just watched his Salt Lake performances again. I was brought to tears again. He is amazing. I was wondering how his programs would have fared under the new system. I loved Gladiator with the knives. I thought to myself, well if anyone can do it...Alexei can.

    Those programs not very well, but he would have adapted them to the new rules. He tried a comeback in 2007, you know?

    I did not know that he tried to come back. Are there any videos on youtube? It seems that a skater like him would have been able to adapt to the new styles.

    Yayay, a thread for the emperor. Don't forget his revolutionary etude, a masterpiece with unreasonable low score.

    Yagudin will always be my favorite male skater. I miss him. *sniff* I was reminiscing today and watched his Exhibition routine from Oly's 2002. Perfection.

    Thanks for posting this! It so great to see this performance in HD. He had such a masculine way of skating combined with great artistry, for me he's one of a kind because of that.

    Yes! Masculine but also artistic. He was also very expressive too. Nowadays you can't find male skaters who have both of those qualities. It's usually either 1 or the other. I miss him... It was such a shame about his injury because he was too darn young to retire. I always thought if that injury never happened he would have kept on dominating and quite possibly won the next Olympics. Wish he would coach!

    I wonder if figure skating was responsible for Yagudin's hip replacements, and if he could have no surgery, provided there was no skating in his life. I understood he had a genetic problem, whatever that was.
