Greatest performances not to win??
Inspired by the other thread about greates skaters, I wonder, what about those really good performances that didn't win a event. And by that I'm NOT saying that the one who won shouldn't have.
I mostly watch men, and from very recent seasons that is so obviously my list will be really short.
- Plushenko GPF 02 "Story of an Artist"
- Plushenko Olys 02 "Carmen"
- Plushenko GPF 04 "Nijisnki"
Ok I'm biased sorry for that, now the rest
- Jhanke 4CC 04 "Brazilian Medley"
- Lambiel Euros 02 "Cirque du Soleil" (I realized that the technical content was really low but that was an awesome program)
- Alexander Abt Euros 02 "Rachmanichoff"
- Timothy Goebel Olys 02 "American in Paris"
- Brian Joubert Euros 03 "The Mission"
what about yours?
I'm also doing this thread for very selfish reasons because I want to download other programs so I want to see what's worth downloading.

Midori Ito 1990 Worlds
If it weren't for the figures she would have been 2 time world champion
Midori Ito '88 Olympics technically on another planet to anyone else in the building!
S & Z 1999 Worlds - this will open a can of worms I'm sure and I do really like B&S's skating but my gut instinct on the night was they were robbed. On reflection the russians were better in many areas at the time but S & Z were clean.
S&Z 04 Worlds. No wuzrobbing here but awesome skate.
Irina-97 LP at worlds: She skated awsome and had that WOW factor.
