    If you could build a pair out of 2 single skaters who would they be?

    Just for fun…


    If you could build a pair out of 2 single skaters who would they be?

    For me I would like to pair Johnny Weir with Sasha Cohen


    I'm pretty new to this board so forgive me if this question has been asked before. I just thought it would be fun to see whom other would pair together.

    Everyone keeps saying that they'd put Johnny and Sasha together, but I just don't see them being a good pairs team.

    I think Mike Weiss would make a great Pairs skater. I don't know who I'd pair him with though

    Braves........great idea. Michael is a solid singles skater, plus he's got the upper body strength needed for lifts and throws.....now, who do we pair him with? Angela? 42

    I know there is a history of skaters transitioning from pairs to singles (yamiguchi & galindo)... but does the same hold true for singles skaters transitioning into pairs?

    Wasn't both T & M (2004 World's Pair Gold medalists) both single skaters?

    Kristi and Rudi were both singles skaters. I'm not sure if you can classify their pair partnership as transitioning to singles as they competed both events at the same time.

    Kristi and Rudy were both singles skaters first, I think

    Jamie Sale and David Pelletier were more successful at pairs, but they also competed as singles before they started skating together...

    I'd pair Kurt Browning and Josée Chouinard... not sure if it'd have worked... but their little numbers they've done together have always been so much fun! :D

    Yikes Dee, I forgot about the wife.......Angela's programs of late have been beautifully choreographed, maybe she could insist they use her choreographer...!!! 42

    Yuka Sato transitioned to pairs with her hubby, but that was in the pro world. There are lots of people who are singles skaters when their young, but switch in their teens. Older than that, I can't think of any.

    Marinin did skate singles, but switched when he was beaten by a much younger Plushenko.

    How about Timmy Goebal and Sasha Cohen? I think Sasha and Timmy go better together than her and Johnny. Plus I think Johnny is only her shopping partner.

    Oksana and Victor P or possibly Illia!!!

    I would have liked to see one of those configurations for a pairs team...well not Victor and Illia, but you know what I mean.

    I also agree with soogar that Tim and Sasha would look nice together, maybe they could work up to a side by side quad. JK
