    Favorite Smiley Moments

    I was watching a list of Step Sequences provided by Gkelly in another thread and noticed besides the steps and maybe even more so....what really caught my attention was Sasha's Smile at the end. It's just a raw moment of emotion and personal triumph. So I submit this as the first favorite smile.

    Sasha Cohen Dark Eyes

    Anyone Else??

    Mao Asada after her SP at the 4CC in 2013 was my first thought! To say she was happy at the end is a huge understatement!

    Yuna's little smile during her SITC step sequence while she is doing her little spiral, that step sequence interpreted "happy and sorrow in life" perfectly

    one of my fave moments in her SITC!

    Also, Akiko's expression after her title-worthy LP performance from last year's Japan Nationals. From that performance, I can never watch a POTO program without comparing it to Akiko's.

    Hmm, of the last year?

    I think Julia at Budapest when she was posing for a picture of mine. I still have that one, she has such a unique way of smiling In competition hmm, I guess Adelina at Sochi during her SP.

    Of the all time favorites of course anything Sasha did but most likely her Romeo & Juliet year.

    Very simple!

    Go to the point in the video you want to link (I suggest 2 or 3 seconds before) and press pause.
    Right-click on the little scrubber (dot) and select "Get URL at current time"
    A window will pop up on the middle of the screen. Copy and paste.

    Voila!

    now I am thinking about it, there are just too many smile moments in Yuna's programs including that famous "Rotten smile" in her Roxanne Tango program.
    Speaking of facial expression, Yuna is the King

    I also have to include Mao's SP in Saitama. Check out the slo-mo of her during the Biellmann spin... she's beaming before she even finishes it!

    Shocking no one mentioned the obvious! Mao's 'Smile' exhibition program, it was disarmingly charming.

    As I recall she tried to shake the cameraman's hand but the boundary was too wide/high or something. It is contemporary, try to be more spontaneous and showcase other aspect of her personality, she owns that program. Very different from her competition programs which feels more conservative, old fashioned and serious (I got rhythm aside) in comparison.

    Plushy's smile near the end of Tribute to Nijinsky. I've always said I liked him as a skater but didn't really find him attractive appearance-wise... but the first time I saw this, for a moment there...

    Some people at that time called this beautiful, warm smile was "cold, robotic, expressionless ..."

    "A little smile after that" from NBC commentator when Yuna successfully landed her 3F

    And this, LOL
