I thought that this thread should be made.

Everyone here is a fan of figure skating. And while it's a wonderful sport, sometimes it seems like there is way to much drama and toxicity.

So this thread is dedicated solely to positivity.

Funny memes, jokes, anything that makes you smile.

No crazy competitions or scandals, just happy figure skating moments.

Great idea for a thread! I don't have anything super recent apart from some sweet Kiss and Cry moments but here's a link to a photo I saved on my phone in 2020 that always makes me smile, of Yuzuru Hanyu goofing off with Jason Brown during the medal ceremony at Four Continents:


And another for good measure :biggrin:

Group hug with Jason Brown, Ashley Cain-Gribble and Timothy Leduc at Finlandia victory ceremony:


Timothy is holding the final pose at 2:53 so beautifully, but I'm so doggone happy, I'm totally on Ashley's page too #cleanskate#


Again, at 4:10, I want Ashley to hold the pose, but I just can't help breaking out into smiles ... #2dcleanskate#. I feel these two programs are intentionally made to show their beautiful synchronicity and unity of purpose. Something unusual.


This is a lovely thread, @Minz :thank:

This funny moment at the 2019 Europeans press conference when Guillaume and Ivan lifted up Marco so he was the same height as them:

Meanwhile, their partners were off taking a cute group photo together:

More press conference fun from GP Helsinki 2018, where G/F, S/B and M/C all elect to do different lifts for the group photo:

And finally, whenever I need cheering up, I just watch Charlène and Marco's reactions to coming 2nd in the RD and winning bronze overall at 2018 GPF:

Katarina Witt and the 2000 watt smile of a young Oksana Baiul.

The Debi’s mentioned above are also good ones.



This has quickly turned into a nostalgia thread.

I love baby skater videos. I don't mean some 11 year old lands a quad axel, I mean *baby* skater videos.

Here is Baby Jason and his very first spiral in competition:


followed by today's version. ;)

If anyone has others, I'd love to see them. :)

Well, since we're onto baby videos...

I came across this last night while (unsuccessfully) looking for another video for this thread. And I was going to send it to @elektra blue in a PM now and save posting it publically for the 10th anniversary of when it was recorded (which is in just over 2 weeks time). But I may as well save the palaver and just post it now:

Just adorable! :love:
