Also Joshua Farris and Evan Lysacek's are nice.
Brian Boitano is the best, by far.
I also voted for John Curry because I love him
I agree about Jonathan Cassar's, very impressive.
Cassar, Cassar, Cassar.
Even the mass audiences (and not just crazy figure skating fans ) can tell his spread eagle is a showstopper moment.
I can't resist posting another Cassar spread eagle. I loved this SP from 2009. Here's a clip of the spread eagle.
Brian Boitano....such a deep lean on the edge and straight body line and amazingly solid and strong edging both inside and outside....oh and speed. Breathtaking. Like Dick Button said, worth any triple jump.
Paul Wylie a very close second. Gorgeous line and exciting. Also good speed and edging...not as much power as Boitano.
For fun I just did a search in the FSU Archives to see if I could find the first reference to Cassar's famous spread eagle and I came up with this post by missing in July 2006:
"In my opinion Jonathan Cassar has the best spread eagle since Brian Boitano."
"Randy [Starkman (1960-April 16, 2012)] lived by the same motto as the rest of us. The Olympics isn’t every four years, it’s every single day. He just got it." --Canadian Olympic kayaker Adam van Koeverden
Delete, double post.
I remember Wylie doing some spectacular spread eagles in that Shindler's list program...or was it another one? It was one of her pro performances and it had this dramatic militar drum music...(some help needed!)
Yet another vote for Jonathsn Cassar!!
BTW, I know he's been mentioned earlier, but how about this program of Kozuka's?
well, the whole program is orgasmic inducing
Alexander Uspenski for me
