I was so fortunate this past season to attend four major skating competitions - Skate America, Grand Prix Final, U.S. Nationals, and Four Continents - and I was just thinking back to some of the wonderful performances I witnessed. I thought I'd put together a post and share all my favorites!
Jeremy Abbott's Nationals free skate - Jeremy + Muse = TOTAL WIN
Meryl Davis & Charlie White's Nationals Short Dance - my favorite short dance of the season!
Gretchen Donlan & Andrew Speroff's Nationals Free Skate - graceful, beautiful, elegant, divine!
Daisuke Takahashi's Four Continents Exhibition - in one word: breathtaking. I almost swooned out of my seat.
Lynn Kriengkrairut & Logan Giulietti-Schmitt's Nationals Free Skate - they skated their hearts out and had such an emotional comeback after a tough 2011 Nationals
