I voted for:
1984 Torvill & Dean
1988 Boitano
1992 Klim + Pon
1998 Kulik
Why isn't Lysacek on this poll?

I would like to have voted for Mish/Dmitriev because I loved that program so much it is still my all time favorite pairs LP. Unfortunately, the Olympic performance has two clear technical flaws that make me feel my vote has to go to the folks who did all their technical content cleanly (at least viewed in real time). I can't vote for G&G 1994 for the same reason - Sergei really struggled thru the last minute or so. (OTOH, I'd have been hard pressed not to vote for their 88 free skate, had the poll maker included it as an option.)

Honorable Mention
1994 Baiul
2002 Yagudin, Hughes
2006 Tot-Mar
2010 Lysacek

I would have picked G/G 88 if it were there. So I picked T/D, K/P, Yags, Kim.

Watching skating since 1999, having missed about 20 years of a given period, I went with only two: Yagudin and Kim. Two outstanding skaters, both masters of their times. Big names, will go down in history as the best of the best.

But honestly, there hasn't been too many Olympic champions since 2000 who I would be crazy about. If we did this for short programs also, I would have placed D/W's OD very riddiculously high.

1. Klimova & Ponomarenko
2. Torvill & Dean
3. Kim
4. Boitano
5. Yagudin
6. Miskutienok & Dmitriev (would be higher without any mistakes)
7. Virtue & Moir 2010
8. Gordeva & Grinkov 88
9. Totmianina & Marinin 2006
10. Gordeeva & Grinkov 94 (would be much higher without any mistakes)

So since I can only pick 4- K/P, T/D, Kim, and Boitano.

:) My 4 as well.

I proudly voted for Sarah Hughes... I always enjoyed her skating and I make no apologies.

Yag. Just because his and his rival's Plush programs were away ahead. The gap between Yag/Plush stuff and the rest of skaters was much huger than the gap between other OG winners and their opponents.

I loved Arakawa's performance. It's my all time ladies favourite
If I to pick the men, it'd be kulik. Untouchable jumping wise and in his ss ability (Patrick who?)
In ice dance, for me K/P are the clear winners, even over T/D. their class was unrivalled and that program is a Masterpiece with capital M
as for the pairs, why didn't you include B/S Meditation? For me it was totally mesmerizing and breathtaking and even though G/G or M/D were exquisite too, they had better performances of their programs in other competitions

Boitano (what a fabulous LP competition that was)
Yagudin (again, just a great LP with Pluschenko, and Goebel with all the quads)
Kim (first ladies OGM-winning program in a long time that really delivered in every respect with meticulous technique and tremendous linking moves.)
T&D -- (first time ice dance ever grabbed me and made me watch. Just mesmerizing.)

I'd go for Gordeeva Grinkov 1988. 1994 was their weakest performance in a big event, other than world's 1990.

Toller Cranston called the 1988 skate the "skate of the decade" and said as a judge, he would have held up a 6.1.

Me too! I feel no shame. :P

But I really can't decide what was better; her performance or her reaction to winning! :lol:

Boitano, Kulik, T&D, K&P

I loved G&G in 1994, but I also loved their performances in 1988.

I loved G&G in 1994, but I also loved their performances in 1988.

I loved the 88 performance too, and it was cleaner. I did not want to split the votes, so I didn't include it.
