Lu Chen, The Last Emperor, 1995 Worlds
Oh Lulu, I love you so.
Susanna Rahkamo/Petri Kokko, Quickstep OSP, 1995 Worlds
This is just so joyful and sparkling.
Stephane Lambiel, Hernando's Hideaway exhibition skate at 1997 Worlds
Dying of cute.
Carolina Kostner, Canon in D at 2007 Worlds
Most people remember Yu-Na's SP, but for me it was all about Caro. Gorgeous.
Sinead Kerr/John Kerr, Scottish OD at 2008 Worlds
Who doesn't love the Scottish OD?
Nathalie Péchalat/Fabian Bourzat, Circus at 2009 Europeans
Great fun, and I love Nathalie's reaction at the end
Gala Finale, 2010 Worlds
Basically, this is because of Dai and Mao's entrance and excellent throw.
Team France K&C antics, 2012 World Team Trophy
Now that's entertainment.
This doesn't mean that these are the best performances ever; that's a subject for a different post (expect Lulu to show up there as well). But sometimes, I'm looking for something fun rather than something difficult or brilliantly executed.
What are some of the skates and skating clips that cheer you up?
