Now that the competition season is over I’m bored and I have lots of time to reflect back on my favorite figure skating moments. Here is my list of the most electric performances… in no particular order.
Please add your own favorites to the list
MK- LP at 2004 Nationals: I honestly feel this was her best skate ever. And as far as engaging a crowd, they were on their feet before her straight line footwork was over. I cried a lot, and I’m not one of those dire hard MK fans.
S&P- LP at 2002 Olympics: I usually am bored by pairs skating, but they peaked my interests again…. And not because of the controversy surrounding the judging.
Tara- LP at 1998 Olympics: I can still hear the sound of her shrieking in my ears late at night. She was like a little lightning bolt on the ice, and although my heart broke for Michelle I couldn’t have been happier for her.
Oksana- LP at 1994 Olympics: Despite the pink marabou it was a captivating skate. No one will ever doughnut like she did. Magic.
Nancy-LP at 1994 Olympics: Gorgeous. I felt like she had the world behind her, she was skating for so much more than an Olympic title. The turmoil of the months leading up to the event really added to the electricity as she overcame so much.
T&D- Bolero at 1984 Olympics: Set the bar pretty high, and I don’t think anyone has ever matched them.
