Guestbook About Links Champions of 80's Русский


WELCOME to the web site dedicated to the great Russian figure skaters, Olympic champions, three-time World and European champions, Elena Valova and Oleg Vasiliev. Elena and Oleg continued the tradition of Russian victories in pairs’ figure skating after the retirement from sport of Irina Rodnina and Alexander Zaitsev. The skating style of Elena Valova   and Oleg Vasiliev united the grace and elegance of Ludmila and Oleg Protopopovs and also athleticism and dynamics of Irina Rodnina and Alexander Zaitsev. Elena Valova and Oleg Vasiliev were the first pair to perform side-by-side triple jump. They were the first Soviet figure skaters who turned  professional after retirement from the amateur career

Burden of glory – is it easy to bear?

E. Valova:  Difficult. Some people exaggerate

our virtues, others - our flaws, and a few of them

want to see us the way we are.
