    This season as a whole had been full of shocking moments, so I don't think I could pick just one! The nominees are great though, but Alissa skating 2 clean competitions in a row would be a nice addition to the list!

    Abbott off the World team

    Although really, the whole US Men's World team - no Abbott, Rippon, Mahbanoozadeh OR Mroz - is pretty shocking.

    That's definitley the most surprising. Nearly everyone believed that this year's title and second place would be between Rippon and Abbott, with Armin, Bradley and Mroz fighting for bronze.

    The results are kind of bittersweet. It's awesome Bradley, Dornbush, and Miner did so well, especially Ryan, but it's disappointing to see several favorites not even crack the top three. :(

    I agree with the U.S. men's world team. Totally unexpected medalists at Nats.

    Results never shock me (unless really crazy), because ice is slippery.

    Music chocies do shock me.

    I don't know what shocks me more - Flatt switching music or EOE, or seeing the actual step sequence.

    "Sarah Myer's European Champion Gold"

    :shuffle: Yeah that was a suprise, a skater no one had ever heard of with a name that sounded exactly like another well known skater.

    It must be awkward for poor Sarah Meier, people are going to be congratulating her for this Myer girl's win and she has to correct them.

    No Abbot, Mroz or Nagasu in the World team is a very big surprise to me.

    That did it for me too. The falls in the early part of the season didn't shock me at all, but the fact that he did those 3 quads flawlessly did. I'm glad he didn't give up on them in spite of the falls earlier on and he stuck to his guns.:)

    I am more shocked with Chan's quads to be honest. Bradley is a great skater, so is Meier and so is Czisny. Their respective wins have IMHO been a long time coming.

    Absolutely Sarah's gold for me !!
    I think that she is over and will never win any competition again.
    But She did it dramatically and made me cry.
    Good job, Sarah.
    What a woman !! What a skater !!

    Voted for Sarah's europeans win but if it was an option I would have gone for Abbott, Rippon and Nagasu NOT going to Worlds. Now that's shocking :eek:

    All in all a pretty memorable weekend of skating wouldn't you say?? :lol:

    Now - what is the story with Meier? I heard that Europeans was her last competition. Does that mean she's not even going to Tokyo? If I were her, I would give Worlds one more shot.
