We had the thread about the worst long after leading the short. What were some memorable comebacks after a nightmare short? The first one to come to mind for me was Yu Na Kim at 2010 worlds. Bombing the short, she then came back and had a very good (but not great LP) to win the the free skate and win silver overall. Maria Butyrskaya at 1997 Europeans- 9th in the short, then came back to place top 3 in the free to place 4th overall Lu Chen at the 1995 Trophee Lalique- placed near dead last in the SP after missing every jump in the SP, she then went on to win the free program and won silver.
