This SHOULD BE ON YOUR LIST, floskate!
I agree with D/S not all wins happen in the K&C, many teams watching win backstage and it can be just as exciting.
Sale & Pelltier 2002 SLC right after their performance and especially right after their marks.
Oh, you are evil!
Adam Rippon U.S. Nationals 2012 SP
Errrrr....non!! Thanks everyone - definitely have given me lots of material to consider!!
Grzegorz Filipowski 1989 Worlds
All of mine have been mentioned, floskate.
Looking forward to the "magic" you do, with whatever you choose, as always!
Took long enough for someone to mention Boitano's 88 OGM LP!
Paul Wylie 1992 Olympics SP (even better than the LP)
Sarah Hughes 2002 Olympics LP (I'm not sure if anyone else mentioned that one yet; if I'm redundant, sorry!)
Dorothy Hamill before she skated when she thought she was being booed (crowd was booing the judges) -and afterward when she knew she had skated great even so.
Jeremy Abbott making pig faces in the KnC when he won, I think it was his first US championships
Delobel & Shoenfelder on the podium @ Worlds in Sweden when "The Marseillaise" was being sung. Very emotional moment for Isabelle, IIRC.
Now I don't feel so bad for saying I love Irina Rodnina's reaction to the marks at that performance http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fjz1pSOaQZU (it's at around the 8 minute mark)
Such a contrast to NBC lol.
Wow. I love it.
Even if you don't think it's professional, you can't deny that this was pretty entertaining.
I would add Liz Manley after her freeskate at the 1988 Olympics when the fan threw her the white hat and her coach was so excited he picked her up.
Ashley Wagner 2012 Worlds FS
Robin Wagner's reaction after she found out she was the Olympic Champion.
Oh wait...that was Sarah. Never mind.
Kaitlyn Weaver running over to hug Pechalat and Bourzat after their FD at 2012 Worlds (here). Great sportsmanship and she looked so genuinely happy for them, it was just great to see.
Joannie Rochette's magnificent free program at the 2010 Olympics.
Most of mine have as well. I can't wait to see the finished product!
I will add 7 that you probably already have......
Irina Rodnina's tears on the podium at 1980 Olympics
Janet Lynn at 1973 Worlds
Caryn Kadavy 1987 Worlds, including joy of coach Carlo Fassi
Irina Slutskaya 2005 Worlds
Laetitia Hubert 1992 Olympics Original Program
Yuka Sato 1994 Worlds
Norbert Schramm 1983 Europeans
ETA - a few favorite moments of Elaine Zayak:
1984 Worlds, skating 2nd best LP after how she had been treated at the Olympics
1994 US Nationals, the reactions from both her and the audience after both her SP and LP
Dorothy Hamill 1976 Olympics - squinting to see her scores
tiny little Michelle Kwan at 1995 Worlds, tears of joy after a fabulous LP
I admit, I immediately thought of this. Robin aside, I did really enjoy Hughe's reaction, both immediately after she found out she won and in her interviews shortly thereafter.
I like your "additions", pollyanna!
Yagudin's reaction after Abt FS, in 2002 ECH. He knows very well, Abt was the real winner.
Plushenko's marks and Yagudin's reaction in 1998 WCH.
Lipinski at the Olympics and Galindo at 1996 US Nationals are probably my favorites.
Thank you. Great minds and all that.
How could I forget the Carruthers' immediate reaction to their freeskate at 1984 Olympics?
