Gold medalists
come to ice show

And the acrobats, too


August is looking golden at the Sun Valley Ice Show.

Ice show coordinator Rainer Kolb recently announced the signing of two more popular gold medalists for August performances of the weekly Saturday night ice show.

Scott Hamilton will headline the Aug. 9 show, and Brian Boitano is on tap for Aug. 30.

Already signed: 1992 Olympic gold medalist Viktor Petrenko for the Aug. 16 ice show. And rising American singles star Sasha Cohen is slated for the Aug. 23 show.

"Itís maybe my best August lineup ever," said Kolb.

One other highlight will be the return of enormously popular acrobats Vladymyr Besedin and Oleksiy Polishchuk from Kiev, Ukraine. They will do four shows from Aug. 9-30.

Kolb said, "I think skating needs something different like the acrobats. Skating is not just champions and spins, and people here appreciate an act like the acrobats which is unheard of in the figure skating world."

Eight-time British king and three-time Olympian Steven Cousins is due Aug. 2 and 9.

Continuing acts in the 66th summer season of the Sun Valley Ice Show include world medalists and eight-time Lithuanian ice dancing champions Margarita Drobiazko and Povilas Vanagas;

Also, professional world champions Frank Sweiding and Anita Hartshorn; 2000 professional world champions Elena Leonova and Andrei Khvalko of Russia; Dan Hollander, a great show skater; Darlin Baker and Craig Heath; and popular Russian hula hoop star Irina Grigorian.

Tickets for the Sun Valley Lodge Terrace buffet range in price from $77 to $81. Bleacher seats run from $27 to $45 per person. They are now on sale at the Sun Valley Recreation Office, 208-622-2135. Tickets also may be purchased online at www.sunvalley.com.
