No Mattie Larson at Worlds? Shame shame.
1-Weir was great2-Domnina is more expressive than Davis and Virtue put together
I'm a total girly fan, since this was my fave Daisuke performance of the year. Blah blah Olympic medal, World Championship, yadda yadda. MAMBO!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cUeBFfDEj3kAliya, Zama, White Bollywood & Mattie made my year too. But where's Jeremy, the Mattie Larson of USFSA? His nationals SP was DIVINE - better skating than the entire Olympics men's performances.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=587CNprNo_M
Shen and Zhao's 2009-2010 SP would definitely be on my list:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-k5uQQz_Jw
I had the impression that you thought Mao's Bells of Moscow was an abomination. Glad to see it in the list
Yu-Na's free skate at the Olympics and Johnny's as well :)
Definitely a fave:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdP5oHCjAbk
Yuna's Olympic FS, Johnny's Olympic FS, Joannie Rochette's Olympic SP, Shen & Zhao at the Olympics (even though I don't love pairs), Voir and Marlie at the Olympics, Jeremy Abbott at Nationals, Mao at Worlds, Daisuke at Worlds, Mirai Nagasu at Nationals (even if everything was UR), Alissa Czisny at the GPF, Shibutanis at Skate America, annnnddd Daisuke's FS at Nationals.Besides the men's competition, the Olympics in general were quite gratifying for me. :]
Ones not mentioned by you:Oda's Chaplin LP at TES - probably my favorite performance last year:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPupAQObT_QAlso, Pang and Tong's LP and Mirai's SP at the Olympics.And BTW, Happy New Years AJ!
Inoue+Baldwin at Nationals was pretty adorable - meh V/M: watching Canadians skate is like chewing on a dishrag
Yuna Kim's Bond Medley SP & Gershwin LP especially at TEB & Olympic. Absolutely beautiful!!!
" Yuna Kim's Bond Medley SP & Gershwin LP especially at TEB & Olympic. Absolutely beautiful!!! " --> Oops, Yuna's TEB performances were in 2009. The memory of that TEB is so vivid that it seems to me just a few days ago LOL.
I would have added Mirai's skates at the Olympics and Savchenko and Szolkowy performance of their 2nd new long program of the season at Skate Canada.
I would've added Mirai's Worlds SP, underrotated 3-3 and all. She was fierce that day (wish she could've sustained that through the LP.)
Yuna Kim's gorgeous, perfect SP & LP at Olympics-- Her beautiful tears of joy & relief after LP.
Glad you added Jeremy's US Nationals SP. I'd also add JW's Oly SP ILYIHY and Mirai's Worlds SP to the list.Skating aside, Johnny Weir's press conference to address the slurs against him during the Olympics was very memorable and deserves a mention.
