Ode to Chen Lu: "Spring Breeze" from the 1996 World Figure Skating Championships
True to the name of the piece of music, Chen Lu's skating here is subtle and soft. In her bid to defend her World title, Chen arrived in Edmonton, the site of the 1996 World Championsips, on top of her game. In better shape than ever, the skater was also equipped with first-class masterpieces choreographed by the brilliant Sandra Bezic of Canada. Though Chen ended up finishing second to Michelle Kwan in both phases of the competition, her performances rise above the judges' marks.
