Let's Play a Game: Guess What She Said?!
First, enjoy the short program by Vladimir Kotin from the 1988 Olympics if you'd like. He had a charismatic and expressive style to his skating that was very much different from most of the other Soviet skaters of the time.
However, for a good laugh, fast forward to about 3:20 and watch Elena Tchaikovskaya (who, with Kotin, coached Maria Butyrskaya to the 1999 World Championship) say something to the rink volunteer and then move past her, and watch the woman's face. PRICELESS.
So, what do you think Tchaikovskaya said in her deep Russian accent? :)
