Is this Ilia A.?
Is this Ilia A.?
NOOOOO! I have already said NO to that one, but do keep guessing! You ARE in the correct country.
I got it (not by guessing). There is no way anyone could guess this one! And your hint regarding the same country is not quite accurate...
Okay, let me be more specific. The gentleman USED to skate from the same country as IA. Surely the fact that the girl is Marina indicates that he is from that country! :rollin: He no longer skates for that country.
The Israeli guy? Not gonna try to spell that one. That may be waaaaay out in left field - I'm not all that up on my ice dance facts, but I curious about this one now.
BINGO! We have a winner! The gentleman is SERGEI SAKHNOVSKY, who now skates for Israel. (The key word was "NOW" as in "now having stood on the World podium" or something like that.... since he just won the bronze yesterday! YAY!)

Yes Denise has some very strange outfits. But you have to admit if you were in as good shape as she is for her age you would wear costumes like that too!
I would like to add Michael Weiss's long program outfit at the 2002 World's to the list of the worst skating outfits. Did he wear that at the Olympics? The material looked like it belonged on an old couch and the ruffles at the end of the sleeves looked....:rolleyes: I can't think of the right word. Attach a skirt to it and it would of been perfect.......for someone else.
first of all thank you for all the contributions and pictures LOL. I have some outfits to add to the list:
Alexsandr Abt-SP and LP
Sasha Cohen-SP and LP
I and Z-SP
S and P-SP and LP
Keep telling me what you think ~Spyralz

Idleracer your comment on abt made me LOL. never thought about him looking like a dead jellyfish but, after I look at the pictures you posted I would have to agree with you. But, I have to say when I read what you said I cracked up. ~Spyralz
"I'd better win this or ELSE!"
Here are a couple of appearance things that could be critiqued in this same category: best/worst hair, best/worst make-up. Please keep your thoughts coming all of them are making me laugh and I am enjoying reading them. ~Spyralz
That's a good one RGal! LOL!
<font size=4><font face="comic sans ms">[c]Alright, is this thread going to be about funny costumes, or funny facial expressions? Oh, what I would give to find a photo of the expression on the face of that Russian judge that gave Cohen a 5.0. He looked like a constipated sea elephant. You can tell what was going through his head...There! That'll teach your mom to defect over to the west!
