    Michelle came in 8th, I think, at that 1992 competition. None of the skaters who finished ahead of her made it to the elite level. I wonder if any of them could have guessed at the time that they were skating with a future legend. By 1993, though, they could. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxjA5J76QBk

    A life lived with the love of skating.
    Thank you Doris!!!

    I love these old videos you posted of Midori Ito! When Midori at her prime was well before my time (I was only 4 when she won Worlds!), so I find these old videos fascinating! And I've always had a soft spot for the Japanese in general, anyway!

    And how great does Midori look now?! She looks even younger than she was when she was competing!!!

    A set of V/M gifs. I wonder if they're still like this.

    Newsclip of Yuzuru Hanyu , the first podium at Japanese junior nationals 2007.

    Rivalry between little Ryuju Hino and little Yuzu. We can see Yuzuru's mother making his costume at the rinkside.

    I've always loved the Virtue/Moir video on which these gifs are based.
    The formal interview with V/M only is sweet in itself, but the best part (corresponding to the gifs) is the spontaneous appearance of other dear and smiling faces, which starts at approx 1:40.

    Kiira Korpi, 13/14 years: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=slBP9Y_c0ZI
    Laura Lepistö, 13/14 years: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jM6DtRmdMnw

    Document of Kiira (probably made in 2006), there are two clips from 7-yrs and probably 8-10-years old Kiira (start from 3:35 until 6:50) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DLVdYDjWrQ

    That document is also quite interesting, Kiira is still quite young girl (17), nowadays she's a lady!

    I know, the video is underneath the links ( [x] ) on the tumblr page.

    Miniature Jason always makes me squeal in delight. He's adorable. And MBM is so cute in this pic too.

    Champs Camp starts on August 20, same day as SDU.

    Oh, I’m just so happy to see Yukina’s fans here!!!
    Another video of young Yukina in 2003
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZufEzt6xhgw

    And also, she skated on the same music 9 years later. (Sorry, there’s only homevideo)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQIHz5vT2U0

    I know I’m too sentimental but I think I can feel her life in that 9years. She must have had a hard time due to her injury….

    WOW!!!! Even 17 years ago Plushy was ever the showman!!!

    I know somebody asked this on the video page itself, but since there was no answer, I will ask on here.

    Does anybody know who Evgeniy’s partner was in this routine?

    Whoever she is, she is very beautiful!

    Erm, I know it's not Throwback Thursday any more, so let's make today Flashback Friday!

    For all you Plushy fans out there, here are some more videos of a young star in the making.

    Very young Plushy (report)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZegtnW4RVYQ

    9 year old Plushy (report)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40M3l2jZ35w

    13 year old Plushy (Don Quixote)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRZoZWEzCYQ

    Ach, this is taking too much time to type out. Here is a playlist of a whole pile of Plushy videos, starting from the above videos of him when he was very young, up to the 2012 Golden Skate Awards. Admittedly, a lot of videos have been deleted since the playlist was compiled, but there are still a lot of gems!

    http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLA6B6241E7DA91D30

    And, since Disney has just launched a “Lone Ranger” film, I thought it would be fitting to add this playlist. It consists of a whole pile of performances that Plushy did to the “William Tell Overture” in the 1996/97 season:

    Enjoy
