    Is it sad I actually find these better than any of the required moves of ice skaters. This is what it should be about

    Candelero's D'artagnan was much better than his Rocky. His Rocky performance was silly at best.

    Oh wow!! I am so glad that Surya Bonaly was #1!! I remember watching her along with many other skaters, but she stood out with her famous back flip as she graced the rink.. Blessings to you Surya and Thank you for sharing this wonderful video!! I was hoping to see others like Hamilton etc..skaters that not only were great skaters, but made me laugh and very entertaining too!

    If certain maneuvers are banned, due to danger, how come they still perform them? Isn’t it a disqualifying? Otherwise, what’s the point of prohibition?

    • slipperyhardandcold
      slipperyhardandcold 26 days ago

      Actually, many of these moves were banned not because they are dangerous but because they are not considered 'proper' figure skating moves.

    Какие-то непонятные дрыганья у этих товарищей. Русских показали всего на несколько секунд, понятно, что если бы продолжили запись дальше, все эти клоуны казались бы бездарями. У нас лучшая школа, и самые талантливые преподаватели. Хоть здесь мы первые.

    Everyone is floored that Surya did a backflip but are we just going to ignore the fact that no one else did because it was banned? Like in show skating people do that all the time it's not crazy

    I think we need more of this new and vibrant figure skating that really speaks to the current generation. I feel like the early 90s set the bar for figure skating, then seemed to die off until more recently when the sport started allowing songs with lyrics that are more mainstream. I think that this was REALLY an important step for the sport because, if we're honest, the Olympics have to change with the times. And, that move was one of the best decisions the Council could have made (I would be remiss if I didn't mention, though, and am surprised that they're not in this top ten because, come on, the dudes are LEGENDS on the ice, Scott Hamilton and Kurt Browning aren't here)!
