Margarita Aleksandrovna Drobiazko (Russian: Маргарита Александровна Дробязко; born December 21, 1971 in Moscow, Russia) is a Lithuanian ice dancer. She began competing for Lithuania in 1992 when she teamed up with Povilas Vanagas, whom she married in June 2000.[1][2][3] They are the 2000 World bronze medalists, three-time Grand Prix Final bronze medalists, two-time European bronze medalists (2000, 2006), 1999 Skate Canada champions and competed in five Winter Olympics, finishing as high as 5th.

Drobiazko and Vanagas began competing together in 1992 and retired from competition following the 2001-2002 Olympic season, but returned to competition in 2005 to compete at their fifth Olympics.[4] They retired again following the 2005-2006 Olympic season.

Drobiazko and Vanagas are the first (and as of 2010, only) figure skaters to compete at five Olympics.
