I'm working on my collage covers for my notebooks (spiral notebooks, that is) for this semester, and I'm trying to find really great photos of skaters (while skating, that is). If you have any favorite photos, would you mind sharing the links so I can print them and glue them to the notebook? I'd appreciate the help and outside inspiration. Thank you!

I'm not sure how far back in time you want to go, and this isn't the greatest quality photo, but from U/Z's free dance at the 1992 Olympics:

Although she's been criticized for her not-so-perfect leg extensions, what she brings on the ice with each and every element is very worthy of the best.

I am sorry, I am not sure why. I found it by Googling "Michelle Kwan split falling leaf." It's one of my favorite moves by her.



Kwan the Kueen (http://i.imgur.com/AufNH.jpg)
Is this her Spartacus dress? :swoon: She was always the best-dressed skater.

YEP, and obviously she was, and still ranks the top even amongst current skaters:)

Thanks! I got reminiscing of this dramatic program (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yR4VtmHh0Wc).
While Michelle's best performances came from other programs, her Scheherazade is one of my all-time favorites.

Yagudin and the ice, oh, well :swoon: (http://i.imgur.com/z1rIi.jpg)

V/M, their fierce OD (http://i.imgur.com/I4pLI.jpg)
Oh, yeah they were fierce even in their earlier career. (http://i.imgur.com/t0QZj.jpg)

D/S's MATRIX! (http://i.imgur.com/wuVmG.jpg)
This (http://i.imgur.com/EEBHo.jpg) takes energy, too :D

He did Matrix, too (http://i.imgur.com/D1TRO.jpg):cool:

When will we be able to see this wicked smile of Sandhu (http://i.imgur.com/Vb9ls.jpg) on ice? His edge on ice was CRAZEE!
Look at his "line" (http://i.imgur.com/01GyA.jpg)

Mr. Orser (http://i.imgur.com/bp9bp.jpg), so handsome and so great.

From his performance of Tribute to Vaclav Nijinsky, Evgeni Plushenko (http://i.imgur.com/2YaOO.jpg)


Do you see that in her eyes? (http://i.imgur.com/UhPNi.jpg) It was a different, yet special sentiment since Michelle had been away from skating for 3-4 years.


Bonus round, FYI, I'm no hater:P
Brian Joubert (http://i.imgur.com/G36gz.jpg), what's he doin'?
So serious as always (http://i.imgur.com/53jOE.jpg):D
Because he's capable of this (http://i.imgur.com/MwTOu.jpg), I can't help falling in love with Plushy.
