    The posters skewed vision is not limited to height....weight and nationality continuously play into the commentary.
    I think sky fly is the same as let's talk.

    agreed, I dont get how some will get mad when height similarity is brought up
    lifts is a required element in ice dance right ? how can a couple perform difficult and extended lifts when they have almost the same height

    Monko is 5'7" and Khavialin is 5'10". That's 3 inches height difference.

    Denkova is 5'5" and Staviski is 5'8", also 3 inches difference, and they were one of the best dance teams ever.

    So, I fail to see why M/K "shouldn't be allowed to compete".

    lifts before were not that demanding
    look at the top teams now, they have the most difficult lifts and will get good levels and huge GOEs

    Among other many things, like Bukin, how I&K are constantly hosed, etc and that is only for the russian ice dancers

    It's not very comlicated. Both m and k are on skates and k has deeper knee bend and frequently m will appear taller and m is kind of stiff so all of this is a negative and why the most sucessful teams have men who are taller than the women by more than 3 inches.
