    I was so gutted when Sasha fell in Torino. I was convinced she was finally going to put it together when it counted.

    For me, it was Alyssa Cizney's free at 2012 Worlds...that was just horrible to watch. Mao today is a close second.

    Tai and Randy in 1980. We can argue about placements and how our favorite got the shaft all we want. But to have an injury and have to withdraw before even getting to compete. I cried then and I still feel bad for them.

    Looking back, this was an overreaction, but when Elvis Stojko lost to Plushenko at the 1998 Skate Canada, I bawled my eyes out. I was only 12 at the time and thought that Elvis was unbeatable by anyone, except Kulik. To see him lose to some young guy was devastating to me.

    A close second is when Shawn Sawyer didn't make the Olympic team in 2010. I got a bit teary about that one, although I wasn't bawling. Bourne and Kraatz finishing 4th in 2002 was also bad, and Sale and Pelletier's 2nd, although that was assuaged a bit by the second gold medal. Oh yeah, and the whole OD in 2006, that was heartbreaking for so many teams. And I won't forget B&A's 4th-place finish in the 2010 Olympics or P&B's 4th-place finish just a few days ago.

    Oh yeah, I forgot to add the worst thing about the dance in 2002 was not B&K's 4th but the fact that FP/M were 3rd with that horrible fall! It was one of the worst falls I've ever seen in ice-dancing, not from the point of view of how much it would hurt, but from an aesthetics/skill point of view!

    Being in the audience at Skate America when Totmianina and Marinin had their accident is my worst moment. That was devastating to see. I knew she was a rock star when she was on the Pittsburgh news a couple days later complaining that her coach wouldn't let her practice yet.

    It is to her and that was the question asked.

    This thread should have included "spoiler alert" in its title.

    I opened it too fast because my worst moment came so quickly to mind: when I had Nationals in Boston in 2001 and was forced by my employer mid-week to return to work for the entire rest of the competition. I saw novices, some Sr. practices, short dance and pairs short, and that was it.

    This is SO easy...the 2002 Olympics mens SP. When Plushenko fell, I literally SCREAMED in agony...not because I was a huge Plushenko fan, but because I was a huge Yagudin non-fan!

    Michelle Kwan, '98 and '02 Olympics
    Bebe Liang not making the '06 team
    Yukari Nakano not making the '10 team
    Takahashi and Mao in Sochi
    Takahashi at Nationals this year
    Mirai's meltdown at the 2010 Worlds
    Adam Rippon, Mirai Nagasu, Agnes Zawadzki at Nationals this year
    Yukari Nakano's robbery, Takahashi's poor performance, and B/A's robbery or low placement at 2008 Worlds. I had enough of skating results and IJS at that time that I finally stopped following regularly.

    That was mine, too. I was just at the right age for the DRAHMAH to be huge, too (13). The only thing that ever hit me harder in skating was the death of Sergei Grinkov.

    Wow, there were any Yagudin non-fans in the world who weren't huge Plushenko fans?

    Just out of curiosity, what did you not like about him? For me the guy is the ideal everyone should strive for.

    When the crazy casino guy got on the ice with Kwan in Dortmund. I was in the audience, we had no idea it was just a prank and not some Seles-type psycho and security were useless, like keystone cops trying and repeatedly failing to catch him for minutes that seemed like hours. So unsafe and unprofessional, unbelievable.
