    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 :D

    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. :D

    Definitely have Mao sorted trust me ;) and Tara was on my list although I loathed her scream in the K&C. I preferred her pirouette at the end of her 1997 Worlds LP. Same joy, less room for annoyance ;) Keep 'em coming :D

    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.

    Cherub721 YEAH!

    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).

    Here you go :)

    It's always nice to see skaters (and athletes in general) singing on the podium.

    How far back are you intending to go? These are the ones I remember most fondly, regardless of medal or not, just emotion:
    Elizabeth Manley - 1988 Olympics after FP, realizing that she won the silver.
    Rudi Galindo - 1996 Worlds after FP (already mentioned)
    Isabelle and Paul Duchesnay 1991 Worlds after FD, immediately after finishing their program, and even better, 1990 Worlds after FD.
    Marina Klimova/Sergei Ponomarenko - 1992 Olympics after FD.
    Barbara Fusar-Poli/Maurizio Margaglio 2006 Olympics after FD (without a medal, but that's what I call reconciliation, love them!)
    Albena Denkova/Maxim Staviski - 2006 Worlds backstage when realizing they won.

    How well I remember that anthem. I was in the audience, singing as loud as I could, along with the rest of the audience. I still get goosebumps watching the clip.

    More Canadian moments..... Sale & Pelletier 2001 Worlds in Vancouver.
    Shawn Sawyer, 2011 Canadians in Victoria
    Meagan Duhamel, 2013 Canadians in Mississauga

    I know there are others, but those come to mind immediately.

    Kevin van der Perren in general is gives great happy reactions when he's done well - his 2011 Euros SP in particular (fist pump so enthusiastic I thought he dislocated his shoulder!) is a favourite.

    Megan Duhamel starts cheering while being held upside down on a lift (Canadian Nationals, 2012 LP), but I can't find video.

    Todd winning 1996 Worlds & putting the gold medal on his mom. (also loved his reactions after his free skates @ 1998 Worlds, 1998 Goodwill Games, & @ the 2002 SLC Olympics)

    Midori Ito's reaction @ the end of her 1988 Olympic free skate.

    Shen & Zhao @ 2003 Worlds

    One of my favs Michelle Kwan's reaction at 03 Worlds..total elation in the kiss n cry and then her being overwhelmed during the backstage interviews.

    Her redemption after another Oly heartbreak.

    Yuna at 2009 worlds and olympics both after free skate. They were the moments that she realized her long-hoped dreams and the expressions on her face are priceless.

    Kevin Reynolds at this 4cc. You should definitely get those moments.

    Arakawa at Torino Olympics when it became clear that she is the winner at the backstage.

    And all the kwan moments I thought of are already mentioned:swoon:

    When Meryl and Charlie confirmed their world title making history.

    Brian Boitano at Calgary olys. That was something.

    It is not a skater's reaction but Tarasova right after G/P finished their memorial requiem FD at Nagano. That made me more fall in love with the whole performance.
