Ah, the captions I could write.

Evelyn skated very well in 1993 and 1995 at the German Championships.

I love these retrospectives. For Kurt or Viktor, it came down to personal taste. I was a balletophile, so Kurt didn't do much for me. I just watched both and there was no 'perfection' in Kurt's moves. God why did he do a sit spin??? Viktor needed the axel-toe, and that's what made the difference. It's all friendly competition. I could have been swayed by the power of Viktor's program.

I am a bigger fan of Viktor than I am Kurt btw. Had Petrenko done the triple axel-triple toe he would have won for sure. Had he even not turned out of the triple loop he might have.
I love Carmen for Petrenko, but the long program was a snooze for me. That program was skated well, but it was nothing outstanding to begin with. Browning might not have the beauty in execution like Petrenko did, but the program was wonderfully constructed and very charming.
