Aljona got together with Robin in 2003 after Ingo Steuer arranged a meeting via Email between the two. Since then they have been skating as a pair. In longevity, Aljona & Robin have broken a record as well. In pairs it is quite rare to skate that long together. The Protopopovs were another example for longevity and success.

Tatiana V. looks more like Ksenia Makarova or Caitlin Yankowskas. Aliona doesn't really look like anyone else, she has unique eyes. If she dyed her hair brown instead she would look nothing like Volosozhar.

Dumb question here, but are you guys talking about Artur Dmietriev?? One of my favs----where are you seeing him?

^ Thank you. skatedreamer! Maybe NBC will show their their recap on 4/13, but I doubt it. I guess I'll have to check out icenetwork.com for them (I much prefer watching all of the competition on a bigger TV screen).

Alas, yes. I gather he is taking part in Worlds, but since I haven't seen any of the footage, I just went to Google Images and found some photos there. He was and still is a fave of mine, one of the great pair skaters ever, but his looks have coarsened considerably.

Artur Dmitriev is currently coaching the pair Antipova/Maisuradze which got 8th place here. So he was seen in the kiss 'n cry with them.

thanks for your answers, re: Artur Dmitriev, DianaSelene and Olympia. I'm watching Worlds via Universal Sports, so am not seeing all the participants, like Antipova/Maisuradze (are they Russians?). I did look up those pics on Google, Olympia, "coarsened" looks is probably generous, lol! Oh well, I don't care----he was still to die for as a pair skater

Yes, I've seen A. Dimitriev in kiss and cry with the skaters he was coaching. Yes he is a big guy, and he gained more weight, but he wasn't on the thin side not even when he was competing, especially at the end of his career. I always wondered how was he able to jump that 3T...
