Figure Skaters
    Born in Russian Federation
    Oksana Domnina (August 17, 1984- ), born in Kirov, Russia
    Maxim Shabalin (January 25, 1982- ), born in Samara, Russia
    Won the bronze medal in ice dancing at the Vancouver Olympics (2010)
    Placed first in the World Championships (2009) and European Championships (2008,2010)
    They both had multiple other partners before teaming up in 2002.
    Despite being Russian, Shabalin represented Bulgaria for two years (1997-98).
    They consistently refuse to discuss their decision to change trainers.
    A routine they created based on Australian Aboriginal folk dances, in which the pair wore dark body stockings and body paint, was criticized by Aboriginal leaders as offensive and 'cultural theft.'
    He began skating at age four, she started at age six.
    They toned down their costumes for the Olympics, with lighter colored bodysuits and no face paint.
    The Olympics also featured the German team doing a Hawaiian dance, a Chinese pair going Greek and the gold-medal winning Canadians doing a Spanish flamenco with none of those routines drawing cries of cultural theft.
