    The Ultimate Olympic Silver performance

    Some of the greatest Olympic figure skating performances have been by Silver Medalists-who do you think gave the best?

    Michelle! She was magical. In a tie, of course, would be Paul. :D

    Michelle was phenomenal. But...she had some many other great moments, I'd have to give this one to Paul. His Albertville free skate (while not technically perfect) was packed with emotion and energy. He took the whole skating world by surprise with his Olympic silver (should have been gold in my opinion) and I'll never tire of viewing that performance again and again. In my mind, he set the standard for artistry in men's skating (from the 90s on, Curry did the same in the 70s) and that is exactly the type of style I want to see more of.

    I couldn't chose just one. It would have to be between Paul Wylie's and M&D's. It was so wonderful to see Paul pull it off after so many years and tries. M&D's program was so powerful and dramatic and very worthy of a Gold medal.

    Paul

    Definitely Paul. His performance was worthy of the gold medal, whereas Michelle's, compared to Tara's inspired performance, unfortunately, was not. (BTW, I am NOT a Tara fan at all!)

    Silver medal winners

    Definitely Paul's. He deserved the Gold. Petrenko's Worlds performance was worthy of that Gold, but Paul should have had the Olympic Gold. His performance that night should have won.

    this is such a tough choice, but definantley M&D. I can't describe how great their skate was--so moving.

    They're all great choices, but I'd have to go with other-Liz Manley in 88. Maybe it's the Canadain perspective, but wow, that was a fantastic silver performance.
