    The crowd stood for Kwan BEFORE she skated her Fields of Gold program at SLC Olympics. It wasn't for the performance obviously, but the performance justifies the SO anyway. :p

    I think Shen & Zhao's LP at the 2003-2004 GPF got a standing ovation before they finished. Ditto with Mishkuteniok (sp?) & Dmitriev at the 91 Worlds (maybe 92 Olympics and Worlds as well but I could be wrong).

    Some of those are epic and gave me goosebumps but too bad there are several that you couldn't see the audience's reaction at all towards the end :(

    Kurt Browning - 1994 Canadians - Casablanca - a standing ovation before he skated, and the crowd was back on their feet again before he finished.

    One of the most touching moments I've witnessed was when Ben Ferreira took to the ice for his LP at 2006 nationals in Ottawa. As he skated around waiting for the previous skater's marks, the crowd started standing slowly at first and then increasingly until the entire rink was on its feet applauding - I think even the media in their booth, maybe even the judges.

    Without any fanfare, fans knew that it would be his last performance, and it was a lovely way to honour him and thank him for the many years he represented Canada.

    I love these threads. Thanks for all the links. What a joy to watch!

    OMG! Who would have ever thought when they started that they EVER would skate like that!

    Sometimes I think because a few people decided to stand up then everyone else just followed also, especially if the skater is well-liked.

    Michelle Kwan's Short Program at the 1998 Goodwill Games:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPTN9aL8gJI

    Despite her mistakes in the long (fall of a triple loop and a doubled Salchow), she skated with much more speed and conviction than in Nagano.

    This is an excellent choice. I think Michelle's 98 nationals overshadowed this performance, but her Goodwill Games was SPECTACULAR too. She doesn't get enough credit for the performance in hindsight but the crowd went NUTS for it. It was one of the most cohesive short programs I have ever seen. :swoon: And it came at the end one of the craziest, most grueling seasons of her life? Spectacular. :swoon:

    At 2002 Olympics, MK also got a standing O from some in the crowd (and wild clapping from everyone) before she skated, and then a standing O right before she ended:

    Todd Eldredge's 1998 Worlds' free skate. He was doing one of his amazing combination spins towards the end of his "First Knight" program, and "Uncle" Dickie said, "This is enough to bring the audience to their feet," or something like that. It was also very heartening to see/hear him get a standing ovation before he skated in SOI (Kurt had introduced him) shortly after the 2002 SLC Olympics.

    It helps that Worlds were in the US, but B&A were the first place US team at this point, but the audience was clapping & standing for D&W even before the end of the program

    Michelle Kwan, long program at 1998 Nationals, and probably the short, although I'm not 100% sure. That was when she had the foot injury and no one was sure what to expect.

    I was there for Shen/Zhao at 2003 Worlds and I will never forget it. I always wanted to be at a competition for a "moment," and although I was there for the MK performance I mentioned above, S/Z was amazing. None the less because Chinese flags were waving all over the arena, and I'm old enough to remember a time when Chinese flags flying in Washington DC was unthinkable.

    In 2003, the arena was in the middle of Washington DC's Chinatown.

    Where the Friendship Arch is

    And where restaurant & street signs look like this

    Somehow, other than Beijing, it seemed like a perfect place for Shen & Zhao's wonderful 2003 performances.

    For me, I was lucky of being there at the 2008 World championships in Gotheborg: the KerrĀ“s OD, we all were just giving them the biggest standing ovation for anybody in that championship IMO
