Well his LP was his weakest skate the entire week. He won based on the judging of the Figures portion and his short program and the fact that Brian Orser had a mountain to climb due to the judges holding him down in figures. (I got all of that from Scott's book so it *must* be true )LOL - i'd have to add Scott Hamilton to this list, too. The only amateur competition I watched of his was his LP at the Sarajevo Olympcis and I definitely didn't understand why he won. However, as a pro, I always enjoyed the humor he brought to his programs and grace that he has exhibited during his illnesses.
