This performance was perfection—artistic, musical, and athletic! They were only 21 and 22! Imagine if they had stayed competitors until 1992!

Love this pair. Wish they had stayed together. Her position on the death spiral is gorgeous.

They should have medaled here, hands down.

Lord, how I miss these days of skating where skaters interpreted and skated WITH the music, instead of these crappy pop vocals being used today, which is in essence, just background music.

Loved it ! Great performance. Last one from Robert I guess. What a way to end your career. Would probably have deserved a medal if the SP was as good.

It IS the exact same version of Lecuona's "Malaguena" by Stanley Black and His Orchestra that many skaters use, including Kristi.
