None..........I don't think any have, or had, the skating skills to compare.

If we're talking overrated enough to land on the podium with CRAPTASTIC skates: Laura Lepisto, Irina Slutskaya (usually sloppy), and, sorry everyone, Yu-Na Kim.

When Yu-Nam's jumps are off, I really can't get past the horrible positions, lack of toe point, musceled ugly spins, lack of 3 loop (just to play it safe and rest on her laurels), and fake "emotions" on the ice... constant open mouth doesn't equal expression to me. At the end of her Olympic LP, there was such a lack of excitement with her (and everyone else, IMO) that I couldn't believe that she would end up winning. I mean, I don't HATE her, but she is far from the best ever.


ISU gave the OGM to a chick with horrible ugly positions and fake emotions only opening mouth constantly. She deceived whole world! Or super power koreans bribed ISU! so sick of it.

BTW i know one skater who depends on her old friend 3loop too much, somtimes Flutz, trubled 3A, sometimes positioned well but can't keep enough to get level, poor ice coverage, lack of power, and same face for 4:10. wow...and OG silver medalist&2010 wc winner. is she running the Grand Prix series? Haven't heard her name/ saw her on podium for quite a long time...Ah, she's the one with PCS%TES.......142.36%. somebody mentioned! so glad to hear her. and just like you, I don't HATE her ;)

oh, Lady Patrick Chan? no,no. P.C has at least nice flows &edge techniq and sometimes quite good to see.

It's too bad Mirai wasn't there as even the US's champion. That might have worked in her favour if she'd won US Nats instead of Rachael.

I donīt belive that the international judges care one bit whether a skater is the US champion or not...

Being US champion does not seem to have given Rachael any particular advantage.

I'm guessing you decided not to feed the troll in the previous post.

However, I do have to say that anyone who uses YuNa's Olympic LP as the punchline for a post on craptastic skates is ridiculous.

Kostner. Without a doubt.

If you are refering to me, that is not what I said. I said that when she doesn't land her spectacular jumps (which she did in her Olympic LP) she has many gaping flaws, which stand out in a negative way, ie: Skate America 2009, GPF 2009/2010, Worlds 2010... those scores are, to me, not justified.

My one point about her Olympic LP was that even though she landed her jumps and skately cleanly, it still lacked the typical Olympic excitement for me (and others, I'm sure). That's all. :)

Does this mean you believe no female skater in the history of skating has/had superior skating skills to his?

Kostner has gotten some bad scores when she's bombed though. I'd say Lepisto, even when she skates really poorly her scores are always over 100. And 115 for a FS full of doubles? That's totally Chan-flation.

Well, she didn't have 4/5 falls and won. So, there's a big difference between her and Chan. :P
