Josee, Joannie now Osmond are the best women skaters of Canada. Josee reminded me much of Katia. Just a lovely skate!

I've always loved Tonia Kwiatkowski's silver medal winning LP at the 1996 U.S. Nationals:
Her best ever performance, in my opinion, and such a wonderful moment in her career!
I'm really enjoying looking through this thread! My favorite Sasha Cohen performances:
2003 Campbell's (best Swan Lake)
2004 Worlds SP (best Malagueña)
2002 Crest Challenge (best Rachmaninoff)
Yes, those were amazing Sasha Skates. There is no one remotely like her. Falls in comp. from nerves, she still was beautiful. I think clean performances would have Peggy touting her and not Michelle. She is lovely. And seeing ice dance performances I never had time to watch plus Susanna, that was lovely. These are the kind of hidden gems, or forgotten great skates I hopes to see. thanks so much for all contributions. It is a fine thread, indeed. Let us keep finding our gems!
Yes, I totally agree about Sasha. I didn't care about ladies' skating until Sasha came along; I definitely prefer the balletic look. Look at her spiral, then look at YuNa's......absolutely no comparison.
