Artur is the first male figure skater in history to win Olympic Gold medals with two different partners (Oksana Kazakova in 1998, Natalia Mishkutenok in 1992.) The only other skater to achieve this was Irina Rodnina.
Artur is the first figure skater in history to successfully win back an Olympic Gold after having lost the title previously. (Won in 1992, placed second in 1994, recaptured it in 1998.)
Artur is also one of only a small handfull of Olympic figure skaters who have three Olympic medals. (The others are Klimova/Ponomarenko, Irina Rodnina, Sonja Henie, and Gillis Grafstrom.)
