    Midori in all her glory!
    I hear outside a million panicking birds, and know even out there comfort is done with; it has shattered even the stars, this creature at last come home to me.

    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.

    I just watched the programme and came here to ask the same thing! What would you call that...an inside one foot axel?

    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

    So undermarked!

    Their "La Strada" FD was equally as stunning, IMO.

    The uploader has a LOT of cool rare vids that I have never seen before so take a look while you're there.
    What an amazing skater! She was several years ahead of her time. If not for the compulsory figures, she would have won many more world titles. She had enough technical skills to blow away the 1986 field. She would have won in 1980 if not for the compulsories. Thanks for posting this, and yes, there are lots of other Midori videos there.

    Happy Birthday, Midori Ito! She turned 42 today.

    Apropos of nothing: am I the only one here to have had way too much nostalgic fun watching Patricia Mansfield's 1995 US Nationals free skate?

    NO way. I had a blast watching that program again. So many voidy drinking game moments: someone getting the movie title wrong, peggy talking about her mother making costumes etc.

    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.

    Based on what I gleaned from the SkateWeb reviews of 2002 Easterns at 2003 US Nats, I suspect so, too.

    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!

    Great to see how much Manley's program evolved between Skate Canada and the 1986 World Championships.

    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.

    Here's an in-no-teknik question about Trenary's 1986 St. Ivel FS: Is there anything wrong with this one-foot-axel-3s combination?

    No, that's Eurosport's Simon Reed commentating and clearly not understanding what a 1-foot axel is. Almost 30 years later and he's still clueless

    ^Thanks. I'm also wondering about the name of the co-commentator on that event. Hers isn't a voice I've heard before.

    That was T&D's coach who recently passed away - Betty Callaway.

    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!
