What have been some of skating's most shocking or dramatic moments caught on tape?

Here's a good example (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tHfM9iptYig#t=8m28s)!

:eek: That is still as unfathomable today as it was nearly 10 years ago.

Most high drama:
Joannie Rochette's 2010 Olympic SP: her pre- and post-reactions
Katia Gordeeva's first public skate sans Sergei Grinkov
Michelle Kwan's 2006 Olympic withdrawal and interview with Scott Hamilton and Bob Costas
Nicole Bobek's 1998 Olympic SP post-reaction
Jeremy Abbott's 2010 Olympic SP post-reaction
Miki Ando's 2008 Worlds LP withdrawal and post-reaction
Michelle Kwan's 1997 Nationals LP post-reaction
Angela Nikodinov's reaction to missing the 2002 Olympic team
Maxim Trankov's 2010 Olympic SP post-reaction
Stephane Lambiel overcome with happy tears on the 2006 Olympic podium
Nancy Kerrigan's 1993 Worlds LP post-reaction: "I just want to die."
Nancy Kerrigan's 1994 Nationals assault reaction: "WHYYYYYYY?!?!?!"

I can't believe the sadistic cameraman who kept on zooming in on michelle's heartbroken face after they were all standing on the podium

Some of these are more shocking/dramatic because of something the skater consciously did, that was unexpected, inappropriate or a surprise. So I wouldn't count e.g. Joannie Rochette's reactions at the 2010 Olympics as shocking or dramatic....I am not sure anyone else in the same situation would have reacted much differently. IMHO her behaviour was very classy.

I would count the Skary Babs staredown of her partner at the 2006 Olympics among the most shocking/dramatic moments....

I'm not sure I'd call most of the examples given shocking or dramatic. Emotional, yes.
Maybe it's a language thing but my understanding of shocking and dramatic is something else and especially shocking as a negative tone to it, for me.
Something I'd call shocking, for example, would be the fall of the Ukrainian pairs skaters at 2000 Worlds, Palamarchuk and partner.

I would include when Johnny Weir's LP score were shown at the 2010 Olys, Idk if I would call it shocking but it was dramatic, a whole lot of booing going on (myself included :shuffle:)

I was speaking in the context that these dramatic moments were emotionally moving and vividly striking, at least they were to me. The term dramatic can have a wide range of meanings and interpretations; it doesn't have to be only a negative experience.

Rudy Galindo wins in San Jose, 1996 Nationals:

Exciting, dramatic, glorious. Love you, Rudy! Miss 6.0!

Even the favorite, Todd Eldredge, seemed happy for Rudy. Eldredge later admitted (after he won 1996 Worlds) that Rudy's Nationals performance had inspired him.

Lots of drama surrounded Janet Lynn at 1971 Worlds in Lyon, France --the audience was in an uproar b/c they didn't understand why Lynn didn't win a medal after her free skate. That drama led to the rules change which added the sp and reduced the percentage given to figures in the scoring. At Worlds '73 with the debut of the sp, Lynn was expected to win since she excelled in free skating. Everyone was shocked when she fell. She came back from her disastrous falls in the sp to win the free skate and place second overall with the silver medal.

One of the most shocking moment for me : http://youtu.be/I_BFYZPuqEA?t=2m58s

But that was just because my favorite made a mistake. There are worst things in life. ;)
