    This really surprised me.

    That did it for me too. The falls in the early part of the season didn't shock me at all, but the fact that he did those 3 quads flawlessly did. I'm glad he didn't give up on them in spite of the falls earlier on and he stuck to his guns.

    I am more shocked with Chan's quads to be honest. Bradley is a great skater, so is Meier and so is Czisny. Their respective wins have IMHO been a long time coming.

    Absolutely Sarah's gold for me !!
    I think that she is over and will never win any competition again.
    But She did it dramatically and made me cry.
    Good job, Sarah.
    What a woman !! What a skater !!

    Voted for Sarah's europeans win but if it was an option I would have gone for Abbott, Rippon and Nagasu NOT going to Worlds. Now that's shocking

    All in all a pretty memorable weekend of skating wouldn't you say??

    Now - what is the story with Meier? I heard that Europeans was her last competition. Does that mean she's not even going to Tokyo? If I were her, I would give Worlds one more shot.

    I voted for "Other" -- Jeremy Abbott's failure to make the Nationals podium and make Worlds team.

    I voted for Miner's bronze at US Nationals, to me at least the other options were at least plausible. Based on his GPs and even practices I would not have picked Miner to be on the World Team especially over Abbott or Rippon. Congrats to him though.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    Pity that this ballot divides votes for US men's podium as the most shocking event ... that Bradley, Dornbush or Miner medaled was not shocking; that all three medaled was shocking (IMO)

    I'm shocked so many have answered Sarah's gold. Who exactly outskated her? She was the only top competitor there to skate a clean/relatively clean competition with 2 solid programs. Her competition isn't the picture of consistency either. European ladies is pretty much wide open every year. I guess I can understand the shock that she showed up in the shape that she did and no one really knew what to expect from her given the time away from competition and her injuries, but girlfriend has been a top 6-8 staple in the world for a good number of years and I knew she was capable of winning Europeans, as a number of ladies in Europe are. I'm so proud of her!

    ^ yes but last year she didnt skate well and her finish at Wolrds was telling a lot. Plus she got all season out being injured. Who thought she would even medal? She was not a factor in every Euros, neither has she won again .Her expression in kiss n cry is priceless and very touching.

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    Not really a moment, but all the triple-triples attempted at Russian Nationals.

    forget the quads - clean 3As from both Sawyer AND Chan at Canadian Nats
    Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?
    A: Competition forums on the board are available to those with a Season Pass or a premium membership How to View Kiss & Cry

    Yes. She feels that winning Europeans is the perfect ending for her competitive career. I don't recall her exact words, but that's the gist of it.
    My job requires me to be a juggler, but that does not mean that I enjoy working with clowns.

    Even more because I read this article before the competition.
