“I started skating because I watched Kurt Browning and Brian Orser and it was about the program. And the most memorable programs in skating, you remember the program and you don't remember what elements they did”

Jeffrey Buttle won the world title and set off a debate. No, this isn't skating's latest controversial victory. via The Knoxville News-Sentinel

O.K. no quad for Jeff Buttle, just pure, clean beautiful skating with great big well-executed jumps linked by flowing, fast connecting steps and last, but not least imaginative, well-centred gorgeous spins. All of this presented with great charm and style and musicality. Who needs a quad and all the drama that goes along with that ... will he land it or won't he? I want to see a guy at the top of his game go out and put on a flawless show -- and that's what Jeff did and that's why he was rewarded with the gold! I say, "Bravo".
