They are great!!
I remember Vladimir Besedin & Alexei Polishuk skating together and feeling that they should have been allowed to skate @ pro worlds. They were never invited I think(I could be wrong though).
Their numbers were mostly acrobatic, but they were capable of skating "formal" pairs programs too. I remember watching one of their programs and being surprised how unacrobatic it was. They performed lifts, spins, jumps, throws, and actual pair skating. To this day I remember that program, but can't remember what they were skating to. Youtube doesn't have a video of this performance.
I just like this clip. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQJxtq--W6o Although I didn't really understand at first what was going on with Stéphane and his jumps, until I read the comments below that he was jumping my way, not his regular way.
With cute videos of these male-male partners, what would everyone's ideal pair be? Someone like Yuzu would be good to throw since he's so small and light. Potential partners?
Szolkowy/Trankov/Shnapier throwing Yuzu for the first ever 4A!
