Special moments in Olympic-year world championships
The World Championship competition in an Olympic year is unique in that many of the Olympians do not participate (or do not skate as well, coming off their Olympic high). This gives an opportunity for other stars -- new and old -- to shine. What are your favorite performances from an Olympic year Worlds?

Off the ice
...(I)n 2010, more than half of the Olympic medalists and a lot of Olympic competitors also skated at Worlds. I believe they were strongly encouraged to do so... of the medalists who did not compete, Plushenko was penalized for not going, Shen and Zhao and Domnina and Shabalin has already retired, and Lysacek and Rochette were cleared to do other things.
2010 Worlds were fun - great winning performance in the men's event, fantastic ice dance competition, interesting result in the ladies, and while I don't recall the pairs' even as well, I don't believe it was a bad one, either...
