    Also, the whole Tonya/Nancy mess in 1994 esp Tonya and her skate lace, how many equipment failures can a skater have in her career?

So unsafe and unprofessional, unbelievable.
    They made such light of it on the tv broadcasts too. I'm still amazed that something like that could have happened. Ugh.

    Mao's performance today and Michelle's withdrawal from Torino top the list for me.

    This. And then it hurt even worse in 2002 when my dad spoiled the results by saying he'd heard on the radio that Michelle had a mistake and didn't win.

    Definitely Mao today.
    Drobiazko/Vanagas missing out on the Worlds podium in 2002.
    Grinkov's death.
    Belbin/Agosto missing the podium in Vancouver. When I saw the original version of their Ave Maria FD at CoC that season I had truly believed they could win the Olympics. Then...

    I haven't watched Mao yet but I'm sure that won't be easy. I'm about to watch and will probably be bawling for her. Sasha At 2003 nationals and worlds was just Nervy and Bad for me. I think watching Kurt Browning not win in 1994 was the worst for me. And while I'm a Sasha Uber, watching Michelle skate to fields of Gold at the Olympic expedition tore me to pieces.

    LOL! Almost killed a friend who came in to work that morning talking about the results. Still haven't forgiven him!

    Still, Sergei's death was the very worst. Hard for all of us who love skating but I can't even begin to imagine the heartbreak for Katia and their little girl.

    I know, and after reading "My Sergei" and how Katia blamed herself and had to fend for herself when she was so sheltered. Gut-wrenching. Her first solo performance...so heartbreaking. . .

    Same here. I not-so-secretly hoped Mao to have a skate of her life. I couldn't have imagined in a thousand years things would turn out like that.

    Waking up all excited after the men's SP, grabbing my phone to check twitter and find out much Plushy had rocked the house...then reading that he had withdrawn...then reading about Brendan Kerry...and that was pretty much shattering.

    Oh, and Max's sad eyes on the podium at Nationals were the most heartbreaking thing at that competition.

    Maם Asada SP yesterday, Tomas Verner's Hidden Czech skate at 2008 Worlds, Savchenko/Szolkowy's disappointment this year, P/B's fall that robbed them of a medal at 2011 Worlds and Brian Jouberts' SP at the 2010 Olympics (horrible memory).

    I'm not a huge fan of Florent Amodio's - all that crappy material - but seeing him heartbroken at both Euros and the Olympics this year has been really sad. I hope he'll find his way back to the elite level.

    Some bad moments I watched at the rink:

    2000 Worlds Obertas/Palamarchuk FS, when he dropped her on a lift, she fell on his neck and he was lying unconcious on the ice for minutes before the meds came.
    2001 Europeans when Anissina/Peizerat fell in the end of their otherwise magical FD.
    2004 Worlds and the idiot who came on the ice to disturb Kwan. The security was sooo low. Kudos to Kwan for skating well after that.
    2005 Worlds and very heartbroken Albena Denkova after they were
    2008 Worlds and Korpi bombing in the free
    2014 Olys pairs free and Aliona´s tears afterwards

    Of all the things from tv, I think Mao yesterday tops my list.

    I have to add that my "My best moments list" would ne quite long, too!

    Of course, a beloved skater's death is among the most terrible we may come to hear of.

    In general, worst moments for me when watching fs mean witnessing terrible falls with injuries and emergencies (like Tatiana Totmianina, Melissa Gregory....) At the 1994 Olys, I very much felt for Mandy Woetzel who fell so badly that her chin was bleeding, and Ingo Steuer who had to carry her from the ice, his face ashen pale. It was the first time I watched skaters stop their performance mid-program because of a fall, therefor it festered in my mind. I wasn't a big fan of theirs, but it doesn't take much to feel the utter horror of such a situation.
    There are also these moments I share a skater's disappointment. Denkova/Staviski not medalling in Torino, for example. But these moments can't be called "worst".

    As a fan, my worst moment was learning that the Duchesnays had to quit skating because of Paul's back injury. It made me very sad, but at the same time, I was glad he wouldn't risk his health anymore.

    Except from Sergei's death....

    ....it has to be when Sasha Abt lost the Euros gold to Yagudin in Lausanne 2002. I was a total crazy Abt über, and I'm telling you it was really hard to be a total crazy Abt über lol I was devastated. Most of the rink seemed to agree with me, that was my only consolation. Awwww those young, carefree and totally passionate days.

    Mao yesterday was also terrible, and every time Daisuke is injured....again....I think a part of me is dying.

    Another horrible memory was how Elena & Anton was treated during the controversy in 2002. The North American press was disgusting, I remember reading interviews were Anton said how it got to them, how he couldn't sleep at night, and I have a photo from some press meeting were he's holding his arms around Elena as to protect her, they both look incredibly sad and defeated, in what should have been their proudest moment. (It didn't make things any better that they lost worlds the year before to S&P, in Canada, skating the masterpiece Chaplin-program that was never rewarded properly. I will never understand that. It is another of my really bad FS-moments)
