Petrova/Tikhonov are the 1999 European Champions. Petrova was the former partner of 2002 Olympic Champion
Anton Sikharulidze and won with him Junior Worlds in 1994 and 1995. When he left her to skate with Berezhnaya
in 1996, she continued her career with Pulin. Petrova teamed up with Tikhonov in the summer of 1998. Tikhonov
was World Junior Bronze medalist (1989 with Irina Saifutdinova) and has also competed for Japan. After the 1994
season he stopped his competitive career to skate in shows. He came back to competitive skating because he
missed it. They name Olympic Champions Gordeeva/Grinkov and Mishkutionok/Dmitriev as their idols in skating.
The couple missed the 2007 National Championships due to illness (Petrova).
