    ^ Well, if we're sticking to the topic of ranking the winning performances then it really is just Patrick and Yuzuru; much like V/T & D/W where both only had 2 different people/teams winning the past quad

    Yeah, but it seems like this thread has drifted beyond winning performances. Many nominating Carolina's bronze performance in Sochi, Mao's free skate there, ect.

    Is there really a lot to debate about, in terms of men's winning performances? Chan 2011 Worlds > Hanyu 2014 worlds > Chan 2012 Worlds > Hanyu 2014 Olympics > Chan 2013 Worlds. Maybe some debate about Chan 2011 vs. Hanyu 2014, but otherwise it's just descending order of sloppiness.

    I'm confused. I thought we're suppose to rank the "winning" performance, aka programs that earned them 1st place. But i guess it's not????

    I think the thread warped a bit into the top performances at Worlds/Olympics... of the 5 winning performances, I'd say:

    1. Kim 2013 Worlds
    2. Asada 2014 Worlds
    3. Sotnikova 2014 Olympics
    4. Ando 2011 Worlds (
    5. Kostner 2012 Worlds (I'd rank her FS higher than Miki's but if we consider her SP+FS then I'd put her behind)

    Take it with a grain of salt because of my fandom but to me....Yulia's CH is much better than Adelina's simply because she presents and emotes....maybe I should say relates her programs to the music much better. Yes she gets off time here and there but there is much more feeling IMHO. It still needs work but to me Adelina beats Yulia in jumps and SS but not CH and certainly not Interpretation. They both could use work on lots but Yulia's programs connect with the audience much better. It's just my opinion mind you

    Of course, you're always very polite in expressing your reasonable opinions I can see how people love Julia but her skating just doesn't resonate with me. I think we all are guilty, myself included, of overlooking our favorite skaters' flaws and weaknesses and being a little more critical of competitors but, as you prove, we can do it in a way that respects fellow posters and the skaters.

    For those who wish to continue fighting the Sochi judging wars, there are three open threads on this subject in the Olympics folder under 2013-14 Events -- 396 angry pages so far and counting.

    I don't know if we're allowed to go back to 2010, but YuNa's two programs still take my breath away. In more recent programs, Mao Asada's recent Olympic long program overshadowed just about everything else for me. It was stupendous. In ice dancing, just about anything by Virtue/Moir and Davis/White through this quadrennial (what a peak period for ice dancing!), but my special favorite will always be Davis/White's Die Fledermaus—any performance of it through that season.

    SP
    1. Asada 2014 (flawless)
    2. Kim 2013 (boring, but well skated)
    3. Sotnikova 2014 (not memorable, but well skated)
    4. Ando 2011 (I actually really liked this program)
    5. Kostner 2012

    FS
    1. Kim 2013 (flawless)
    2. Asada 2014 (not as good as Olympics, but still good)
    3. Sotnikova 2014 (mainly because of her technical content)
    4. Kostner 2012 (technically easy)
    5. Ando 2011 (Can't even remember this program??)

    If we could include Mao's OLY FS that would be on the top of my list.
