Favorite Ice Dance Teams (in no particular order) || Marina Klimova & Sergei Ponomarenko

1992 Olympic Champions, 1988 Olympic Silver medalists, 1984 Olympic Bronze medalists (the only skaters to have a medal of each color); Three-time World Champions; four-time European champions

Admittedly, I only recently REALLY came around to them and started to consider them a personal favorite, even though I understood and appreciated their high praise. Pity about the my life prior to this realization, how I lived in the dark!

In 20 years of skating together: 2008 World Champions, 2007 European Champions, 2008 Grand Prix Final Champions, Three-time Olympians, Six-time French National Champions

    For fun, general entertainment and archiving purposes, I’ve been planning on doing a series of several of my favoritest~ of favorite skaters (starting with ice dancers. I’ll get to other disciplines eventually!), past and current (and for some, hopefully future) that includes links to some of the programs I hold so dearly in high regard, for whatever reason. I have, like, 10 planned, but there is a slight chance I may add more in the distant future.
