    How about Laetitia Hubert? She was downright threatening I'm convinced this is her putting a curse on all of figure skating! Even when she was on it was scary.

    Re: Yulia Death glares.

    Almost always reserved for journalist but I must admit I enjoy watching such a tiny girl give such a menacing glare. The hipster inside of me appreciates such irony

    Wow, I'd forgotten about Hubert, but she owns the glare. Almost creepy.
    I don't really see Yulia's glare so much. Maybe because she seems to smile pretty openly off the ice.

    My favorite one of hers: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...pscc2bb7c5.jpg

    She was not happy to come in 2nd.

    I'd also add Anna Pogorilaya to that list of death stare/scary b*tchface ones. Definitely not a happy camper there.

    I love that when these girls are pissed you definitely know it.

    Mon Jun 16 is the final day of IceNetwork voting for the most "iconic move." Just a reminder, in case anyone still is interested.

    Mao Asada - spiral, step sq, 3A aren't options. Kind of sad. Also sad that botched 3-jump combinations, pumping palms up during a spiral - Sotnikova isn't an option.

    Finally found that gorgeous 180 Charlotte spiral Adelina did...right into a 3T.

    I'd love to see her incorporate that move into her programs this year. So few people can hit a full 180 Charlotte. It's a very effective move when it's used correctly.

    Agree re: the Charlotte; just wish she had held it a wee bit longer. The spiral a few seconds later was also very pretty. I'm not a fan but gotta give credit where it's due!

    Wow! Truly 180 extension, you weren't kidding! And I love how she went right into "dramatic pose!" mode right after the 3T. Right on beat with the music.

    Her arabesque spiral is wonderful too. Great extension, and excellent pointed toe. I love how she doesn't drop her back like some skaters do. With Mao gone, it's good we still have someone with a lovely arabesque.
