so happy season is finally starting, to get me going I got hooked up on youtube, it was so much fun. I have no idea how many times I've seen these on my old VHSs, but I'll keep playing them forever! of course, I guess there's many more I could have chosen, but tonight....these are the ones!
Nathalie Krieg 94 olympics SP As the river runs through it
to me, this girl is the best spinner ever! and this program is so delightfully choreographed, perfect for her, she has speed and joy and even lands her 3t.
love how she moves with the music, so soft and yet so bursting with energy!
Xue Shen & Hongbo Zhao LP worlds 2003 Turandot
this is beyond words, I'm still crying watching it. every move is perfectly fitted with the music. the way he touches her face, so gently, and how they look at each other...it sends shivers down my spine. true beauty!!
Alexei Yagudin SP worlds 2000 Nutrocker
I could have chosen any Yagudin-program really, but right now I'm hooked on this one. the height of that flying sit spin is out of this world! Yagudin-energy I miss these days.... choreo is so Yags, still there was something new every year!
Natalia Mishkutenok & Artur Dmitrev 94 olympics FS Rach no.2
How could they not win??? they were robbed, and I love Katia & Sergei so much as well! Artur is THE pair skater, love him to death. what a perfect, perfect, perfect program, who need any other Rach anyway! the ending is SO FAB!!!
Irina Slutskaya FS worlds 2005 Wonderland
for her to skate like that, under so much preassure, and win the gold at home...I cried, again lol
Kyoko Ina & John Zimmerman 2002 olympics FS Rapsody on a theme by Paganini
she looks so happy when she appears from under his arms during the combo/carry lift, love them!!
Stanick Jeannette Euros 2003 FS Le petit prince
If you don't bother to watch any of the other videos...watch this one!! I wish there was a video with better quality and without the crazy annoying commentator who never keeps silent....but still, it's my Stanick! to me, he's one of the best skaters ever, and I know it makes no sense, but I don't care about anything else when I see this program. he won the bronze, with Plushy first and Joubert second...I don't care about any of them! this is the program. it is so different, so Stanick, so french, so much emotions and the jumps are amazing. I was there in the arena, and when he finished I was on my feet, crying, waving my french flag that I brought only for Stanick. anybody else who miss him??? (lot of rambling, but awwww so sweet...)
