    Happiest Competition Moments 2018-19

    There have been a lot of great happy moments already this season and one of my favorite ones is Tarakanova’s Fortnite Dance in the KnC. . It was a lot of hard work and uncertainty that lead to that JGP victory.

    Here is the video: https://youtu.be/AnhVTKMDGk4?t=6m13

    Please share some more happy reactions

    Nastya's happy dance when she qualified for JGPF was SO CUTE.

    Kaori Sakamoto at the end of her FS in Helsinki was probably the brightest spot in this entire Grand Prix for me

    Kozlovskii after his and Boikova's FS at Skate Canada

    Kolyada landing his first 4S and then smiling at his fans at CoR was like seeing somebody come back from the dead.

    I second your choise of Tarakanova's reaction, she's so amazing and cute and fierce! I love that fist bump in the air thing she does when she skates well, she is always so passionate!


    Memorable happy reactions that came to mind now:

    Rika getting the highest FS score of this GP so far:

    Kaori amazing comeback at Helsinki:
    https://youtu.be/wl16vE6iV50?t=287 The reaction! I also love Kurt's "everybody stand up!" It was a great performance and it made me so happy!

    After everything that happened the week preceding the GP Russia, it was just great to see them all so happy.

    After that awful short, coming back so strong in the FS was a satisfaction and relieving and Zhenya showing her fighting spirit. I hope she remembers this performance to find her strength again at Nationals.

    Again, a strong come back from the FS to clinch the gold.
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=mJNhATCnwDQ

    She was so happy when she realised she was in first.

    And this one of course:
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=NI6DtLqZ8Qg

    Such a beautiful performance. And again, someone climbing from 7th to 3rd place and Kaori even managed to enter the GPF! Her joy was so wonderful to watch here. What a redemption skate! Probably one of the greatest moments this season.

    (Unfortunately I‘m on my phone and have no idea how to place a time stamp)

    That moment at 7:17 when the crowd at NHK absolutely erupted after Fear and Gibson’s FD (https://youtu.be/6569d6NKUdY)

    Jason’s face at IdF when he realised how high his score was at 6:54. (https://youtu.be/WmFdyNacVTE)

    Great idea for a thread.

    I second Jason’s reaction to his IdF SP score. Also Brian’s and Tracy’s reaction. And Jason’s reaction when he realized he had silver. And his broad smiles at the medal ceremony.

    Pretty much ray of sunshine Jason anywhere at IdF

    So many smiley Jason flag photos.



    (Also, Sasha is cute towering over the U.S. boys with his Russian flag in one of those pictures).

    The Autumn Classic mens podium - okay, Yuzuru may have been kuyashii over his scores, but he was still enjoying it, and Junwhan and Roman were both so over the moon and funny (Jun forgetting, then rushing to hug Roman, Roman so distracted by being up there with Yuzuru that he had to be reminded to turn and get his medal!), you'd have to be an absolute grump not to smile.

    Ratified qlutz for Trusova. It was more like:
    - Take your 11.50 BV and get out, little girl. Go play some dolls...

    Tarah and Danny celebrating their medal in france. (not in the kiss and cry, I think they've had too many surprises to be enthusiastic anymore). But during the victory ceremony they both had smiles that could light up a dark room

    As many people have said, Kaori's reaction after her FS at Helsinki. But this girl always has the most authentic and cutest reactions, see following:

    Skate America 2017 post FS

    Skate America 2017 receiving scores

    Nationals 2017 receiving scores post SP

    love Kao-chan.
