Dear Website Visitors!!!
Thank you for your visit to the website "Poetry in Motion ",
dedicated to Elena Valova and Oleg Vasilev. I hope, that you have found
or will find interesting information not only about this remarkable
pair, but also about the figure skating of 80’s.
March 2003 marked 20 years since E.Valova and O.Vasilev's had won the
1983 World championship in Helsinki in their first attempt. The launch
of the website was dedicated to this 20-year anniversary.
Since the launch time, the website has undergone several
changes in design. An English version of the website was created and
added. The website now has sections "Articles' Archive" and
"Champions of 80’s " section has turned out to be a
significant addition to the site. However, its English version has still
been under construction, but in the near
future it will also be finished and presented to your attention.
Please, send all your remarks,
concerns, criticism to the webmaster at
And to everyone who has already written to me -
Please, come back again!
New on the Website!!!
The English version
is created and added
New section "
Champions of 80’s
" is added.
The section is a unique opportunity for a virtual journey
through the 80’s, to recall remarkable figure skaters of that time,
their faces and achievements. "Champions of 80’s " presents the
information about the World Championships and Olympic Games that took
place throughout the decade. It includes text commentaries and extensive
photogalleries of all winners and medalists. This section is unique
because almost all pictures in the photogalleries were taken during the
event they represent, which will give the opportunity to the visitors of
this website to plunge into the atmosphere of those years!!!
Some pages of the section are still under construction, but
they will be updated with new information and pictures on a regular
basis – so, stay tuned and watch for updates!!!
Everyone who owns and is ready to share
any additional information or photographs of the period from 1980
through 1989, please, contact the webmaster at
