    Post Your Favourite Olympic Programs Here

    We are in the last three months until the Olympics! Between now and then, we have a Grand Prix Series to conclude, a multitude of National Championships (There will be tears), Four Continents and Europeans.

    So in excitement of the Olympics, I wanted to open this thread for you to post links to your favourite Olympic Programs.

    When you post, please
    1. Give us the skater's name/couples names
    2. Which Olympics (Place and Year)
    3. Discipline
    4. Program (E.g. SP/FS/FD/OP/OD/CD/OSP etc.)
    5. Music/Program name
    6. A little caption/why is this program a favourite of yours?

    ...AND A LINK TO THE VIDEO!

    Have fun!

    As a template, I'll share one of my favourites

    Isabelle Delobel & Olivier Schoenfelder
    Vancouver 2010
    Ice Dance FD
    La Quete (The Impossible Dream)

    This was the program that caught my eye onto this sport. This Free Dance was their last performance in competitive skating and it was memorable because it told the story of their remarkable career. Her shoulder injury/pregnancy and putting together an Olympic campaign in four months was astonishing and heightened the excitement. Though they didn't medal and finished in 6th, this team's innovation, creativity, versatility to adjust from 6.0 to IJS and originality put them in my mind as one of the best dance couples in history.

    Enjoy.

    It is one of her best programs, she shows a lot of passion

    Nagano was the first Olympic games I had seen, he was so charismatic, I can watch this program over and over without getting bored

    John Curry's LP from Innsbruck, 1976, so simple, classic and elegant.

    In their last Olympics of their careers, this veteran couple produced 2 outstanding performances to win an elusive Gold Medal. The fact that they performed at such a high level even when age was not on their side makes this moment an Olympic program to remember. This is perfection!
