What do you think of this list by Dustin Newcombe? It is a list of what he regards as the 10 best figure skating performances ever, and the criteria he has used is as follows:-
The top 10 in order on the list is as follows:-This list of the top figure skating performances of all time takes into account factors such as: difficulty, speed, impact, point-of-view, choreography, performance, and the skaters overall contribution to the sport of figure skating. I limited this list to performances delivered by skaters as amateurs.
1. Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir (Free Dance - 2010 Olympics)
2. Kim Yu-Na (Free Skate - 2010 Olympics)
3. Xue Shen & Hongbo Zhao (Free Skate - 2003 World Championships)
4. Michelle Kwan (Short Program - 1998 U.S. Nationals)
5. Alexei Yagudin (Short Program - 2002 Olympics)
6. Peggy Fleming (Free Skate - 1968 Olympics)
7. Jayne Torvill & Christopher Dean (Free Dance - 1984 Olympics)
8. Daisuke Takahashi (Free Skate - 2010 World Championships)
9. Mao Asada (Free Skate - 2008 World Championships)
10. Sasha Cohen (Short Program - 2006 Olympics)
Its not a list I personally agree with. But, which of these 10 performances would you say was the best of the 10? Do you agree with the list and the order in which it is ranked? What, if any, performances do you believe are missing from the list in terms of the greatest performances of all time? What would your top 10 greatest performances of all time be?
