Help needed!!! You're favourite skating celebrations!
Calling all my fellow skating history nerds!!!! I started making a montage a couple of years ago that focused on celebrations and reactions by skaters after some of their greatest performances, but never got the job done so I'm looking into pretty much revamping what I've already got and trying to finish the job. But I want your input.
So what are your favourite skater celebration moments? This can be a post skate reaction or the K&C reaction to marks - think Sarah Meier 2011 Euro's LP or Rudy Galindo circa 1996 Any era, any skater, just let me know your faves so I can hunt them down.
Thanks in advance
Really nice idea!

Laura Lepisto - Euros 2009 - FS

Brilliant, thanks DaiKozOda, I have some of those but there are others I haven't thought of. Thank you so much!!!
Maria Butyrskaya 99 worlds
Lu Chen 95 and 96 worlds (and Nagano actually)
Thanks LS. Loved Lu Chen's 1998 reactions
Tara Lipinski - Olympics 1998 - FS
I know a lot of people don't like it and have often ridiculed her for it, but I love Tara's olympic reaction. She wasn't expecting to win, but when she saw that last set of marks and realized she had overtaken Michelle and was going to win, she just couldn't contain herself, and I loved it.
Michelle Kwan 2001 Worlds LP.
I almost love all of her reactions after LP and especially : 1996 Worlds, 1998 Olympics, 2001 Worlds, 2003 Worlds, 2004 Nationals.
Michelle's reaction after her FS at 1998 Nationals; and her reaction toward winning her first Worlds title (1996).
Mao's reaction at 2007 GPF, where she came back from a disastrous short to win the free skate.
Oh and who could forget Tara's reaction to winning the OGM.
Florent & Brian - 2011 Euros
So amazing considering how genuinely happy Brian is for Florent, when he was the silver medalist!
Laurence Owen, 1961 US Nats FS
Elizabeth Manley, 1988 Olympics FS
Shizuka Arakawa, 2004 Worlds FS
Evan Lysacek, 2010 Olympics SP
Alena Leonova, 2010-2011 Russian Nats FS
Other than Leonova great minds.... let me know if you can think of any more and those are so in the montage

Most of my favorites have already been mentioned - Sarah Meier of course, and it's also nice to see Korpi and Kostner looking happy about the whole thing; Takahashi and Tran; Amodio and Joubert. To add a few, though:
* KvdP wins his first Euros bronze - by .07 of a point, so there was some suspense about it until his placement came up. Two years later he won another medal, by .06 of a point. I was hoping he'd work his way down to .01, but no such luck
* Daisuke Takahashi wins his first World medal, in front of a home crowd. He was the last guy to skate, so he knew he'd done it. I'd forgotten how long it used to take to run through the score, that must have been torture for him (and for Joubert backstage). Even with Morozov there, that's a nice moment.
* Yuzuru Hanyu and Nanami Abe react to his score at 2010 JW - just too cute.
* All the skaters make some noise after Takahashi's amazing LP at the 2012 WTT. I love this because everyone got involved and had fun. Team K&Cs are the best.

Yuzuru Hanyu - Worlds 2012 - FS
And who could forget this...
This is just off the top of my head, but Takahashi & Tran when they won the bronze medal at worlds 2012:
Alexei Yagudin - Worlds 2001 - SP
This is my favorite Leonova: Worlds 2011 LP She didn't medal, but she was so happy! Ice kissing and all!
Silvia Fontana - 2006 oly LP Another nice example that you don't need to medal in order to be thrilled with yourself.
I&K always have a good reaction when they skate well 2013 Euro FD
2012 Euro FD
Ryan Bradley - 2011 Nationals Complete with backflip!
Phillipe Candeloro 1998 LP I love how he immediately acknowledges his longtime coach.
This isn't post-skate or K&C, but if you include podia, I love Lambiel crying or Moir singing the National anthem in Vancouver (can't find a good youtube but I'm sure you're familiar).
