You mean that her grin in her COE spiral makes it the best? You know, Sasha also smiled in her spirals a lot...

Well obviously if all you see is a smile, then I suppose the joy on her face is deniable to you. To me, and a lot of others, that grin spoke volumes as to what she was feeling as she skated. But if you can't see it, there's no point in trying to explain it. But speaking as someone who felt her heart when she skated, that look on her face was more than just a smile...

IMO, Sasha is without question the Queen of the Spirals.

The TFB at the 2003 Worlds has got to be my all time favorite performance by MK. She OWNS that music. :swoon:I think she pretty much "owned" that program from its debut at 2002 Skate America (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vm41rHb14I4) when she stepped in at the last minute for Sarah Hughes. Despite the tiny bobble near the end of the footwork, she really, really was hitting on all cylinders that night.

In 2005, IMO, not as beautiful as before : http://youtu.be/YSaV440TLHg?t=2m49s

Blame it to the more and more flexible. That's what happens when Figure skating is more and more gymnastics !
It's a bad camera angle.
I don't know, I thought it looked as good as ever the next season:

I don't like this one, either.
The head and back position in the second part (the outside edge) is too forced, IMO. It was so much more beautiful when she had a beautiful straight back !
