Thank you so much, Crossover! They were splendid ice dancers.



Anissina's junior career with Ilia Averbukh was interesting, as was Peizerat's with Morel:

Anissina & Averbukh were 1990 and 1992 World Junior Champions, and finished fourth in 1991.

At that time, Gwendal Peizerat was skating with Marina Morel. They won the junior World bronze in 1989 and the silver in 1991. In 1990, they finished fourth. They competed as seniors in 1991-1992 and 1992-1993, finishing second at 1993 French Nationals, and 12th in 1992 Europeans.

I did not know that Marina's first partner was Sergei Sakhnovsky, who was later Galit Chait's partner, competing for Israel.

Anissina and Peizerat are one of my all time favorite skaters and I feel necessity for a place to collect their achievement even though they retired 12 years ago.

Enjoy the place and share whatever related to them!

Their Romeo & Juliet Free Dance in Nagano really got me into figure skating. Deeply moving & so noble. I fell in love with them and I find their expressiveness as well as chemistry still unmatched.

Thanks for the compilation on our featured skaters' performances with their previous partners. Anissina said that she felt left behind and angry at the hopeless situation after Averbukh abandoned their partnership for the sake of his love interest, Irina Lobacheva. By the twist of fate, Averbukh was beaten by Anissina not only at Salt Lake City, but also at Nagano as the result of his partnership with Lobacheva. He could've won the 2002 Olympics if he had chosen to stay with Anissina.

On the other hand, it is an interesting fact that Peizerat had competed with the two partners named "Marina" although their original nationality are different. Since Marina Moriel retired, he needed a partner to proceed his pursuit in figure skating and another Marina with strong wills and prowess came to him. :)

The free dance is by far the most mesmerizing R&J program ever done by skaters in my opinion. The choreography, music choice, and costume were all magnificent. I think the package of the program was well executed because the blue colored costume represents not only their identity as a French team but also symbolization of the characters' innocent and pure love. The choice of Prokofiev's piece also reminds of Russian-born Anissina and the dramatic piece suited her personality pretty well. I love the FD much more than their liberty FD at Salt Lake City.

Their RJ number was my favourite of all the things they did. Prokofiev's version isn't used as much lately, and they definitely did it to perfection, imho.

I never thought or knew about the symbolism in their R&J costumes. The most remarkable quality in design was for me that it complimented their airiness and lightness of their movement.
Everything about that program was so exquisite and highlighting the changes in that music as well as presenting the story. .

Interview with Marina Anissina (released 11 February this year!) and some fluff pieces from Russian TV. :) Unfortunately I don't understand Russian (maybe bar some 20% of it via common Russian - Polish vocabulary), there's no dialogue list either. Maybe someone could help? :(

When I was watched them as a kid, I was for some reason convinced they were a married couple. Years later I found out that they were never even romantically involved, I felt like some of my childhood got crushed. :laugh:

I get it. Marina and Gwendal had real HEAT with one another which made them exciting. Their chemistry was so good that one time someone joked that Gwendal was in the delivery room with Marina when she gave birth to her first child, and I actually believed it.
