Tonight KSL (Salt Lake NBC affiliate) is showing the 2002 opening ceremonies again. I'm enjoying it.

Hard to believe it's been 10 years already.

thanks so much for those lovely memories! I watched the menīs LP in the middle of the night (being in Germany...) and went to school the day afterwards, it was worth every second!! what a mesmerizing competition! :swoon:

10 years since I became a fan of skating!

Thank you for such wonderful memories. Alexei is the best skater ever. Noone can ever reach his level.

My fave Olympics ever !.
It had everything.
I also had to watch in the middle of the night, so I remember being freezing cold & having to watch it with the volume low-so not to wake anyone up !.
I spent last summer copying my VHS tapes of it onto DVD & watch them often.
I so miss Yagudin & Abt.

Here in Utah, we stayed up till 2:30 AM watching the rebroadcast of the Opening Ceremonies. I miss Jim MacKay. The city never looked better. Great memories.

I also remembered 10 years ago last night was the pairs free skate.

SLC 2002 are the only Olympics (winter or summer) I ever attended, so they will always be special in my memory.

SLC 2002 are the only Olympics (winter or summer) I ever attended, so they will always be special in my memory.

They're the only Winter Olympics I ever attended, or probably ever will, so they have such a warm place in my heart. Park City was so fabulous! Such beautiful country. And of course-beautiful Alexei. I saw a number of winter events, but nothing to compare with Alexei's win in terms of emotion and drama. I still have a tee shirt and lots of photos!

Summer Olympics are so different...I went to the Atlanta Olys of course-I worked with them. They were also wonderful in their own way, but boy-do I have some stories!! :D

For me it was magic, mostly because it was the first Olympics I followed as a skating fan. I was so young and didn't really know shit about the rules, but I remember all the excitement. I remember it as something totally magical and unique.

Yags was pure brilliance and pure talent. It's 10 years later and there hasn't been anyone even close to him ever since. Makes me really positive about that Yagudin was the best skater ever. You can go on all you want about how amazing Plush is for coming back again, but honestly, I would take a year of Yagudin over 10 years of Plushenko anytime. The man was perfection.

The whole pairs drama was nothing but riddiculous for me. I didn't understand much of the ladies situation, but I remember me and my sister were totally pissed (I was a fan of Michelle, she loved Irina). Ice dance broke my heart because I loved D/V from day one. I still believe they deserved so much more in their career than they were awarded.

The SLC gala is still one of my favourites. So many beautiful, memorable programs.

Thanks for the sweet memories, Nonko!

Is it really 10 years ago now? To me it seems like yesterday when I've spent almost the whole night on my sofa just to watch Alexei's victory ... and after that having some sparkling wine and nice twaddles/giggles on telephone with my skating friends. I was way too excited and overwhelmed to sleep then.

Sigh, those were the days, when Olympic Men's competitions were Olympic Men's competitions and the resulting Olympic Champions actually were Olympic Champions ... :(
