They may not go down as the most beautiful of all time, but I honestly thought both top Chinese couples had some beautiful routines at the last Olympics: (not from Olympics, but same programs)

Especially Pang & Tong's one of the prettiest SP in recent memory IMO

what's wrong with Tessa and Scott?
in that clip one of the commentators defined their performance "absolutely exquisite" and she was right

on the contrary, men's skating should be for ice hockey or speed skating

:hearts: dancing for the girls :hearts:

Sasha Cohen will always be my favorite figure skaters.
Has anyone seen any life figure skating shows? I've been to two starts on ice performances, but I really want to see a competition.

Michelle is wonderful.

For as good as Michelle was in 1996, I thought Lu Chen did better in 1996, but it was mighty close.

Then of course her bronze medal winning 1998 performance for LuLu

and how she won her first worlds gold

Oh, and while on the topic of Chinese skating, a couple of iconic performances by Shen/Zhao, 1 to win worlds on an injurned knee of Xue, and the second after knowing that going into the performance they were looking at a silver at best:

The best part of the last video, is Tatiana and Maxim's reaction after they "won" their first world title. ;)

Marina & Gwendal were beautiful , but I can't help but think Angelika & Oleg would've snatched their wigs in 2002. Perhaps not the prettiest or most lyrical at times, Angelika and Oleg had some of the most exciting routines.

One of the best teams to never win gold. Also to me one of the dreamiest couples ever. To think of who won in 2006, compared to them makes me a little sick sometimes. :lol:

This performance and program just seem to play themselves out. A very rare occurrence.

Sasha's great. That video shows the sheer variety in her spiral elements with the comments. This is also one of my favourite programs to Malaguena.

She and Michelle really took artistic presentation to a new level. We will never see skaters like them again, especially under the new system.
