From Russia With Love: Battle of the Blades winners
Well the Russians have been developing great skating pairs well before Ekaterina Gordeeva began skating with her future husband Sergei Grinkov. So it should come as no surprise that Gordeeva and Valeri Bure won season 2 of Battle of the Blades. Though it wasn't a sure thing since they never got a lot of support from viewers and finished in the bottom two on three separate occasions despite raving reviews from the judges. In the end Canada stopped voting with their heart and voted for the best skaters.
What a way to finish. The always graceful Katia dropped the crystal trophy as the show closed and it shattered on the ice(at the 2:00 mark).
