From 2008 Skate America:
Jane Summersett/Todd Gilles OD. Their best OD performance of the season IMO. And one of the best OD's of the season.

Well a usual inside axel takes off and lands on the same foot so I guess gkelly is right and it's best described as an inside axel landed on the opposite foot. Interesting little jump though

Most of all, it was a great performance full of wonderful moves. Patricia made it back to nationals several times (02 and 03) but none of her performances were televised. I imagine all of her programs were just as interesting as 1995 though.
Better late than never...
from 1985 Skate Canada*:
Caryn Kadavy (1st overall)
Faust (That's all I can identify.)
Ina Bauer into a 3r
flying camel into a donut spin
spread eagles into a 2r2t
flying upright spin
Elizabeth Manley (2nd overall)
The Stone Flower (See comment about Kadavy's music.)
3z (2ft. or a Maria B.-style save?; I should be able to tell, but can't.)
straight line steps
camel-upright spin (in opposite direction)
flying upright spin
steps preceding a flying camel-illusions-upright spin to finish
camel-layback-sit-change-camel (slight loss of speed and control)-sit (ditto)-upright
* all elements well-executed unless otherwise noted
Both videos are recent uploads (and, liking this thread, I hope it will continue).
Thanks for sharing those, especially the Manley program from 1985, falling_dance. I enjoyed that performance as much as er 1988 Olympic lp. Love her hair!
Thanks for posting that clip of Manley at 1985 St Ivel. Haven't seen that in years. It inspired me to upload this:
Liz Manley 1986 St Ivel LP
AFAIK this was her first competition of the 1986-87 season and she picked up where she left off at 1986 Worlds in Geneva by skating an absolute blinder. She had lost the SP to Trenary but this was more than enough to give her victory overall. Manley only skated this well a few times in her career so it deserves to be seen by many.
And huge posthumous thanks to our own Captcrunch aka David Forberg who passed away last month. He very generously shared this footage with me earlier this year. I'll upload Jill Trenary also.
Thanks so much for sharing these programs here.
I'm grateful to David for sharing the footage with you, too.
^Thanks. I'm also wondering about the name of the co-commentator on that event. Hers isn't a voice I've heard before.
Remember when Short Programs were artistic, difficult, and skaters had showmanship and presence on the ice? And look no grabbing of the blade or the crotch!
