    Steven Cousins (GBR)
    Men's Free Skate
    1994 Lillehammer
    Vangelis - Chariots Of Fire

    Since I just added him as a favorite skater of mine, I'd as well add the performance here which made him that. I'm always moved by the "electricity" that's in the air when an athlete just gives it his all and rises to the occasion. The first 2 clean triple Axels of his career were both done here. Talk about good timing, huh? I liked the idea of representing the different Olympic Sports in his program, plus he's just such a likeable guy Well, except I was jealous back in the day when I heard that he was dating Shae-Lynn Bourne! Now, I was surprised to read that he had been married to Elena Berezhnaya and has 2 children with her!

    Who could forget Joannie Rochette's heartwrenching skate at the Vancouver 2010 Games? Still at the top of my list for favorite all time Olympic performances. Of course, Kurt Browning's Casablanca program at the 1994 Olymipics and Tracy Wilson and Rob McCall in 1988 Olympics:

    and the underdog at the 1988 Olympics, Elizabeth Manley:

    1. Qing Pang/Jian Tong
    2. Vancouver 2010
    3. Pairs
    4. LP
    5. The Impossible Dream
    6. After narrowly missing the podium (some think unfairly) in 2006, and falling off the world podium in 2007 and 2008, Pang and Tong skated their hearts out to achieve what to them might have once seemed like an impossible dream.. winning an Olympic medal and defeating Shen and Zhao in the FS. (nothing against Shen and Zhao - love them too!)
