    For the pairs: Evora/Ladwig. I loved their SP. Pang/Tong's great performances.

    For the men's: The young ones like Ten, Borodulin, Amodio, Brezina. Javier's Jack Sparrow. Stephane finishing his SP spectacularly even after the botched jumps. Johnny's wreath of roses to crown his lovely skating. Daisuke, Daisuke, Daisuke.

    For ice dance: Reed/Reed's Japanese folk dance (Fans!), Coomes/Buckland's performances, Crone/Poirier's Bohemian Rhapsody, Samuelson/Bates. Team Marina and Igor's stupendous twizzles. Tessa and Scott's effortless Mahler--their previous outings of their FD were not as perfect as this Olympic one, in my opinion. I couldn't believe my eyes. :D

    For the ladies: Ksenia Makarova. Mirai's breakout performance. Mao landing all three promised 3As (Huge!). Joannie's brave skating. Yu-Na's flawless LP, as the only versions I've seen were the TEB one (she popped a jump) and the GPF skate (Akiko was the breakout performance there).

    My figure skating Olympics worked out pretty nicely.
    Shen and Zhao gold.
    V/M gold
    Marina and Igor's teams silver and gold in ice dance
    Marai Nagasu's placement
    Frank Carroll's gold medal

    I don't really enjoy Evan's skating but I respect game day performers and he was one. I'd have been happier with Johnny Weir winning but that wasn't going to happen, so I'm satisfied with him skating great.

    My two biggest wishes were Shen and Zhao and V/M. I honestly didn't dream that Frank Carroll would finally coach a skater to a gold medal -- that was a bonus.

    As well I thought the figure skating judging was actually fair, which is amazing.

    The nicest surprise was the judging - mostly fair! A few blips of course, but amazingly the skaters that I thought should win, won!

    ITA. The right people won, in every discipline. The dance still throws me for a loop.

    Haha, yeah. I was sure they were going to give K&S a medal in pairs even with their fall! The only thing that may not have been fair was D&S in 3rd in dance, but at least they weren't put 1st. I think eight years ago or so, they might have been no matter how they skated.
