Tarasova Voted to Hall of Fame

New, 2 comments

Tatiana Tarasova, one of the world’s most well known skating coaches, will be inducted into the World Figure Skating hall of fame at next week’s world championships. Tarasova’s list of Olympic gold medalists include Ilia Kulik, Alexei Yagudin, pairs skaters Irina Rodnina and Alexander Zaitzev, and ice dancers Marina Klimova and Sergei Ponomarenko. Tarasova has also spent time as coach of Sasha Cohen and Shizuka Arakawa, silver and gold medalists at the Torino Olympics.

In honor of Tarasova’s feat, I have linked to one of my favorite Tarasova-coached performances, Klimova and Ponomarenko’s gold-medal winning ice dance.
