Day 6: Tatiana Zolosozhar and Maxim Trankov's Olympic Gold-Medal-Winning Free Skate "Jesus Christ Superstar"
I just listened to a TSL interview with the great skating champion Stephane Lambiel. Lambiel sites this 2007 freeskate to "Poeta," authentically choreographed in the Flamenco style, as being one of the programs that he's most proud of. Though there were some jumping mistakes in this performance, Lambiel was most proud of the new artistic style that he showcased at this championship. He's always one of my favorite skaters, and this is another example of his versatility, style, and skill as an artist and performer.
Carolina's stunning 2012 World Championship win. Skated with class, grace, and that awesome pantsuit!

This is one of my all-time favorite Brian Boitano programs. Big, bold sweeping movements, majestic music, and flight over the ice. This is what good skating is all about.

This. Is. Insane.
Record-Setting. Chills-Inducing. Athletic Perfection. Artistic Gusto.
The commentators say he's "perhaps the finest figure skater ever."
What do you think?
