    I haven't seen any of the others, but Kostner's fall on her back in the 04 world's LP was pretty bad. It really looked like it hurt. And then she got right back up afterwards!

    I voted for Mandy Woetzal at the '94 Lillehammar games. I remember watching them on tv and actually screaming when I seen it happen.

    I remember Nancy Kerrigan taking one at Nationals in either 90 or 91 that belonged in the Advil commercials that were running about that time -- the ones where they had the slo-mo black and white shots of people landing on the concrete and bouncing two or three times after falling off a ladder and the like.

    The worst falling sequence I ever saw, not from the standpoint of pure OUCH but from the standpoint of I Can't Believe She Actually Completed This Program Instead Of Running Off The Ice in Pure Emberassment was Evelyn Grossmann at the Euros in 89. She falls on a jump, gets up, tries to skate away before she's all the way up, trips, falls on her face, slides a bit, gets up, strokes a couple of times, trips again..... I don't know what the rest of the program was like; that was the only part of it ABC showed..... :\

    k,
    I completely agree. If you can still get up and skate, you're most likely not injured that badly. You may be sore, but I'm going to say that anything that requires you to be helped off the ice is bad.

    I voted for NNN because it's the only one I know for sure I saw. I was just beginning to get into skating when Hough/Ladret's fall happened, I remember it very vaguely.

    I just remembered the fall the Hartsell's took a couple years ago...Steve hit his head badly....it was heartbreaking!

    Have you all forgotten Yagudin at the Goodwill Games in 2002? The boy's head went into the boards!

    But the best part was the look on TT's face. She didn't look concerned, she looked seriously p*ssed off! I later found out, from Dee, that she'd warned him not to jump so close to the boards...

    I voted for other........Lloyd and Isabelle were skating in a pro competition right after the 94 Oly's, when Lloyd lifted Isabelle up one handed. While she was going up, he caught his edge, fell, and she landed on top of him......they actually got up and kept skating. She fell from an incredible height at the top of the lift........42

    BTW -- who's Caro, as in "Caro 04 Worlds LP"? Is that a typo or an abbreviation or a skater I have completely dimmed out on???

    I'm thinking Weir's second fall in his 2003 National's LP....although Yagudin smacking his head on the wall at the 2001 GWG is up there too! Oh yeah, and where's Midori Ito jumping into the camera pit? What year was that again??

    I haven't seen this one mentioned. In 1984 Olympics pairs SP - Underhill & Martini. Neither one was hurt, but it probably kept them from getting an Olympics medal. If I remember correctly, they were doing side by side sit spins. Barb lost control , fell out of the spin & slid over into Paul. I think he fell too.

    I also remember seeing Scott Hamiltion in a pro comp where he fell really hard 3 times. I think on his lutz he was tilted way too far forward & landed flat on the ice.

    I agree, IceNut. Woetzl's and Steuer's fall in Lillehammer was horrific to watch...and I imagine it must have been terribly painful for Mandy. But, at least she only needed a few stitches in her chin. It could have been much worse injury wise...I'm imagining absolutely horrible scenarios with jaw, tongue and teeth realignments!

    And Midori's fall still makes me shudder! I think anytime a skater jumps out of the rink it should certainly be considered among the "worst falls"!
