    Question Favorite Audiences

    Over the years people like things about different competitions. Where have your favourite skating audiences been? I will list my favorites later because I would like to see what others have to say. To make things a little easier, List by country with as many as three.

    I don't have a favourite skating audiences, in a particular competition. Normally I don't care too much about audiences, but I would say the best one is Japan and Canada, in general.

    Japan, worldwide.
    The World Team Trophy audiences are particularly great.

    At various USA nationals, Boston

    Boston 2014 was amazing. The electric energy especially for Jason, Jeremy, Marissa and Simon, Meryl & Charlie and Mirai was truly something that I did not think we'd ever experience in American figure skating again. It was as Christine Brennan put it so aptly a Michelle Kwan crowd.

    I can tell you who the worst audience is

    But to add to the obvious choices that were said before,

    I heard people had a nice time in the audience in China, So looking forward to worlds


    And hopefully in the coming 4cc the S. Koreans will show themselves as a good crowd

    After 2014 nationals, I am hoping Worlds 2016 in Boston will be Epic and that I can wangle a way to go there.

    After attending Boston 2014, I've pretty much decided I'll have to quit my job if I can't get off for 2016 Worlds. The thought of Jason, Gracie, Chock/Bates and Polina possibly at a home worlds after 2 more seasons of senior experience is so exciting. And hopefully C/S will be motivated to stick around- the TD garden loved them and they loved skating at the TD garden. Any word yet on tickets? We're less than 2 years out. I know they made a website but its pretty bare bones right now. I'm thinking by the summer....

    For me World Championship Audiences are my favorites generally so I'm going by that
    Canada- 2001 Worlds, 2006 Worlds
    Japan: in the big overall picture it has been great to see the evolution of excitement and focus everything
    Note: Ashley Wagner had them clapping through much of her routine and they were into it as well as an example.
    U.S: 2003 Worlds
    So many good audiences in these three countries

    2014 Nationals in Boston. (once I defrosted from walking to the arena) Definitely going to Worlds in 2016. The people in Boston were gracious and nice. The arena was perfect for a competition. The crowds seemed knowledgeable and Boston was Strong! The only complaint was the over-the-top expensive crappy food in the arena - grease and salt!
