Having something spinning around the champion doesn't count as it doesn't involve any motion done by the champion himself/herself.

Garen does

Point in case: CC is irrelevant in this thread. They CAN spin, and it CAN win.

Nidalee spins.
Evelynn spins near as I can tell.
Orianna doesn't spin, she does a 180 and goes back the way she came.
Amumu spins.
Pray tell when exactly Nidalee spins, because unless you're talking about her dance, I don't think so. Amumu whips his head around in a circle but his body doesn't rotate.

When you go into cougar form and use Q, she spins.

Go to ~15 seconds.

Point, I don't often use takedown without immediately either pouncing away or farther in or just straight up changing directions to move away afterwards, so I never see the full animation >>

Ahri's W however is VERY arguable, as I never see her spin while I'm running and using it simultaneously, she just kind of jerks back and forth really fast, it's not actually a spin as far as I can tell. While standing still (who stands still while using foxfire >>) It's definitely intended to be a 360, but the animation is so fast I think it only catches her at 270 and 90 degrees in game frames, so I'm not sure if it counts.

Yeah, Ahri spins on W and does a barrel roll with R... Considering that's around 2/3 of her damage and involves three longer-than-flash dashes, I'd say she does it to win =P

Rewatch the Champ Spotlight for proof W is a spin. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hlalkAUkwqE at 0:24 or so. It's slow enough to see she does a full rotation.
EDIT: lawl, Ex links to it as well I feel lame for repeating him now

Amumu DOES spin his whole body. He drops on his side and moves 360 degrees. See for yourself:
