On the Ice
Best and Worst Skating Moments of 2012
2013 is upon us, but in the spirit of all the New Year celebrations, I thought that it would be fun to look back on the best (and worst) skating moments of 2012.
Some of the best things for me were:
Daisuke Takahashi's FS at 2012 Nationals
Daisuke's FS at Worlds, and just his "Blues For Klook" program in general
Yuzuru Hanyu's amazing FS at Worlds
Virtue/Moir's "Carmen" program
Mao Asada's beautiful "Swan Lake" program
Johnny Weir's failed "comeback"
Alissa Czisny's injury and disaster at Worlds
Akiko Suzuki losing NHK
What do you think is the best and worst of 2012?
Best: Daisuke's FS at the World Team Trophy and Ashley Wagner's winning free skates at Skate America and TEB
Worst: Adam Rippon and Nan Song colliding, and Suzuki losing NHK
Hanyu's FS at 2012 Worlds - His ability to refocus and do a 3A+3T right after that shocking fall was impressive
Plushenko signing a letter in opposition to anti-gay legislation; Some westerners could learn from his example
Hanyu's Parisienne Walkways SP - Great choreography, and he executes it so well
Davis/White winning their 4th GPF
Chan getting a much needed reality check
The overall state of ladies skating (but Kim's comeback will hopefully force everyone to get their acts together)
Czisny, 2012 Worlds. Enough said.
The "interesting" judging at Skate Canada International
Bona Fide Member
Best of Calander year 2012
Davis and White
Being in warm San Jose for US Nats and MK's induction
Ashley's hard fall at the GPF
Seeing Lynn K. get cut on the back of her ankle at practice at SA-Kent (thankfully not serious)
Missing Miki Ando
The land of SnuggleBat and Cuddlepie
