    Marina Klimova & Sergei Ponomarenko

    Marina Vladimirovna Klimova (Russian: Марина Владимировна Климова) and Sergei Vladilenovich Ponomarenko (Серге́й Владиленович Пономаренко) are former ice dancers who represented first the Soviet Union and then the Unified Team.

    Marina was born on 28 June 1966 in Sverdlovsk (current Ekaterinburg) and Sergei on 6 October 1960 in Moscow.

    Marina and Sergei are the 1992 Olympic champions, the 1988 Olympic silver medalists, the 1984 Olympic bronze medalists, three-time World champions (1989, 1990 and 1992), and four-time European champions (1989-1992). They are the first figure skaters in any discipline to win Olympic medals of all the colours. After finishing their competitive career, they turned professional and started participating in shows and events for professional skaters (they are two-time silver medalists of the World Professional Championships).

    Marina's first partner was Oleg Volkov. They competed two seasons and won two silver medals of the Cup of USSR Final (1978 and 1979) and placed third at the 4th Winter USSR Spartakiad.

    In 2000 Marina and Sergei were inducted into the World Figure Skating Hall of Fame.

    They got married in September 1984 and have two sons: Tim, born in 1998 and Anthony, born on 5 January 2001. Anthony is a competitive ice dancer and together with Christina Carreira, his partner, represents the USA. For mor information about Anthony and Cristina look here.

    Currently they live in California and dedicate to coaching young skaters. Additionally, Sergei is ans ISU technical specialist for Russia.

    I've just opened a thread for this incredible couple. It's still under construction (I need to add the videos and detailed results).

    BTW, I started watching figure skating in 1990. The first discipline I discovered was ice dance and I absolutely fell in love with the Duchesnays. I remember I was very upset when they lost to Marina and Sergei at the 1990 Worlds, I cried with joy a year later and, again, was very sad with the Albertville's results. I simply ignored Klimova and Ponomarenko back then, but what could I know about figure skating at the age of 10? Anyway, thanks to all the videos uploaded in the Internet, some years ago I got back to the Duchesnays and Klimova/Ponomarenko's rivalry and … I fell in love with Marina and Sergei. I adore their Albertville FD and consider them a very deserved winners. I also liked a lot their programs after retiring from competitive career. There are quite many of them in the Internet and I hope to copy all the links between today and tomorrow.

    Other BTW: Marina was (and still is) simply stunning And Anthony is her copy

    Enjoy
