    Gritschuk/Platov did not lose a single event from the 94/95 until the end of their 97/98 season which culminated with their second straight bogus Olympic Gold medal. Bestiamina/Bukin were undefeated from the start of the 84/85 season until the close of the 87/88 season as well.

    plus

    1991 Nations Cup - 1st
    1991 Lalique - 1st
    1991 Canadians - 1st
    1991 Worlds - 1st

    And, Elvis Stoyko had himself a "golden season" in 1997:

    1997 Skate Canada - 1st
    1997 Nations Cup - 1st
    1997 Canadian Championships - 1st
    1997 World Championships - 1st
    1997 Champion Series Final - 1st

    You are incorrect on Kurt going undefeated in the 89/90 season. He was 3rd at Skate America in the fall of the 89/90 season, behind Bowman and Petrenko. He was 3rd at NHK that same fall. In fact his win at Worlds that year was remarkable given the rocky year he had. He was even lucky to win the Canadians over a raw Stojko with his 4-triple performance.
