Russian dominance

Russia (and the Soviet Union before 1991) has dominated the figure skating scene for a very long time. 1994 was no exception. Alexei Urmanov is my favorite Russian male skater, no one really comes all that close (Ilia Kulik who came along 4 years later is a distant second). His style, his athleticism, and just his over-all ability to interpret the music just impresses me to no end.

Here is Alexei’s 1994 Olympic long program, watch it here or on Youtube:
