Ah well - here comes the wet blanket. These are all right but the title of your thread is very misleading as imho it should be qualified with Ladies and Recent Olympics. (Not saying I totally agree with the choices either but at least if I knew the topic was all about Ladies I would not have been so disappointed)

I've noticed it tends to be easy to just choose performances from the 3 most recent olympics since these are more up to par with current difficulty levels

anyway as for my own personal opinion, this is artistically the best choreographed short program in the history of ladies skating

Not certain I agree with your choices, especially the free skates. And it would have been lovely to know you meant ladies figure skating. Saying "The Greatest 3 Performances in the Olympic" implies all disciplines, imo.

as I agree with this, and the others who mentioned the same, and feels mislead and dissapointed with thread starters choices, I'm hijacking this thread, and bring you the three men that makes me cry when they skate, because everything they do is so unbelivably GOOD!!!!

if anyone wants to object on Brians flying sit spin, split jumps, spread eagles and 3a are the best ever, I don't want to listen to you!

Tatiana Tarasova quote: today is great day for figure skating!!

Among men, would Kurt Browning's "Casablanca" qualify?

Here is at least one of the greatest Oly performances ever in ice dance (if not the greatest):

It's almost impossible to find clips of specific performances from Vancouver on Youtube - broadcast rights, I guess. The best I can do is a link to the point when Dai went on the ice (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=exEJ_GaDJI0&feature=player_detailpage#t=11257s) for his LP.

No discussion of the best Olympic performances can be complete without this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSZg9-Af7kU).
