The one that started it all

Now granted I remember watching earlier figure skating but they didn’t get me hooked (I know, what’s wrong with me!) but then 1992 Albertville and the following man came along.

Paul Wylie is the most artistic skater that America has ever had. He can probably never been equaled. His lines, his ability to tell a story, just his presence! This performance (the last of his amateur career) was absolutely amazing and in all honestly he was robbed of the gold medal. Yes I know he wasn’t even suppose to be there and he didn’t go on to the World championships after the Olympics, but he was the best male skater in Albertville.

Watch his Henry the 5th program here or on Youtube:
