"I am already Olympic champion. Now I must do something for Oksana."
-Artur Dmitriev, before the Nagano Winter Olympics
The something was an Olympic gold medal. On February 10, 1998,
Artur Dmitriev skated into Olympic history, becoming the only man
to win two Olympic gold medals with two different partners. Three years into their partnership, the deep respect
between Artur and his current partner, Oksana Kazakova,
becomes apparent at the end of each program when Artur gallantly kisses Oksana's hand.
At age thirty, Artur is a seasoned performer, bringing drama and passion to pairs skating which
is unmatched by younger skaters. This page is for fans of Artur
to meet each other and tell why you love him :)
