In 1993, Kristen Fraser and Peter Kongkasem of California were competing at the Intermediate level in Ice Dance. They finished 4th at the 1993 National Championship and qualified for the Juvenile/Intermediate Championship, where they finished last. The following year, they won the Silver medal at the same event. It was their highest US national finish ever.

In 2006, however, both are competing at the World Championship. Kristen for Azerbaijan, and Peter for Thailand.

Laura and Luke Munana
(I guess their parents were big General Hospital fans) are also at the World Championships for Ice Dancing. Representing Mexico. Both were born in San Jose, CA. Both live in San Jose, CA. Both train in San Jose, CA. Their highest US finish was 7th at the 1998 Nationals in Novice. They were 12th at the 2002 Nationals in Senior, and 10th in 2004. That's when they made the switch to Mexico. After all, why work on improving your skating to overtake the competition when you can just country hop?

    I don't think its cheating, I am sure they all have good reasons for representing other countries. all of these skaters are competing for countries that do not have alot of experience and I am sure people will understand it is a first step out of many to build skating programs in these countries.

    I doubt it does anything to the building of skating programs in these countries when these skaters live and, especially, train elsewhere (how many wanna be Azeri skaters can come to Montclair, NJ to watch them train?)
