Inspiration for 2017: Brian Orser's 1983 Canadian National Championship Freeskate

This program is tremendous! Vintage Brian Orser on his way to a third Canadian Figure Skating Championship. The flying death drop in the beginning is incredible, as is his famous Triple Axel and the awesome delayed Axel at the end. Love this!

Hello 2017: Scott Hamilton's 1983 World Championship Freeskate

Happy New Year!

What a way to start the year! I love this performance by Scott Hamilton en route to capturing his third-consecutive World Championship title. Scott's skating is ebullient. Love him and the happiness his skating brings.

May your 2017 be beautiful and bright!
