    When I was in chills yet again watching Yagudin's Winter(God, the audience at SLC just goes nuts for him!), I came to wonder whether there are more of these kinds of playing with ice while performing in competitions.

    It sort of feels wonderful, isn't it? Like children playing with snow!

    Anything that comes to your mind?


    *BTW, http://www.youtube.com/user/analgin13 This channel is so glorious, lots of clips with HD resolution! You should see it.

    Katrina Hacker threw the snow off of her blades in her SP before.

    I found it! SA in 2008. Love her positions all throughout the program:)

    =======================================

    Oh, my mistake. Not SA, US nationals in 2009. And it was choreography so I understood that she did it throughout the season:)

    ^ She also did it Cup of China in 2008 and NHK Trophy in 2008. The video you posted is a typo. That's from 2009 US Nationals, from what it looks like.

    Brian Boitano's classic, Sandra Bezic-choreographed sp from 1988, Les Patineurs:

    Brian flings ice from his skate blade around 1:12 (and 3:39 in slo mo). Great program!

    I'm not keen on the ice playing concept, seems a bit contrived for me. That's just my personal opinion though. I may like it a bit more if they flung the ice at the judges...

    ^^ :lol: Come on, Ozzisk8tr, now that would be a bit too much "playing to the judges' don't you think? Perhaps, kissing the ice is a better move to convince the judges you believe it was the skate of your life, or that you just like kissing/ licking ice. :p

    Yes, David pantomimed playing with the ice as if throwing a snowball (like in the movie). And at the end, David kissed the ice: :lol:

    This program is such perfection, and deserves to be remembered without comparison, without scandal, without controversy. :encore:

    Maybe the judges should put ice on their asses. Then the skaters could choose wether to kiss it, play with it, or even motorboat it. :shuffle:

    Hey, with CoP judging, that's what Brian B would have deserved. No 6.0s for that classic sp ... Come on judges! Oh well, the judges had to give Brian B his due in his fab fp, altho' many felt Brian O was due to win Olympic gold for being short-changed in 1984. Both Brians were great -- Brian B was slightly greater.

    Go figure! ;)

    Hmmm, I think some skaters in this instance might rather :kickass:

    Is it the off-season already? :shuffle: At least WTT is still to come.
