    I think you're talking about Scene D'amour. It was performed in 2000 and 2001.

    I have lots of favorites.. I love her SP in the 2002 olympics, even though age was clearly starting to take its toll on the technical elements. But I think her interpretation is priceless. Her St James Infirmry was her first program that I watched, and I remember being in awe and that's when I fell in love with her skating.

    Otonal in the 1999 worlds is also amazing. She was really more like an artist than a sportswoman for me.

    I never really saw a lot of her skating. The skating that I did watch of hers, she never seemed to pull it together and she always seemed in distress or something...

    In my last post I forgot to mention that Maria's Maleguanea program is one of my favorites and should have won her a medal.

    People keep talking about Maria's nerves...yes, I agree she had to battle them to do well in compettion. I will also add that she was never the same skater after she won the World Champs and in the months that followed her BMW was car bombed. Some said it was retaliation for beating Irina, though that is a rumour and should be treated as such. Her last Olympics were marred because she skated too soon after abdominal surgery and couldn't perform her program. If you recall, it was at the Worlds right after that when she withdrew after the short program and then retired.

    It was after her 1999 win, and possibly early 2000.
