Mira Leung! She is a Chinese Canadian like Patrick with the same bad attitude?

Nah. Mira only got judge-love at Canadian Nats, and even they dumped her well before the Olympics.

Yuna Kim or Michelle Kwan.

Not because they ever fell four times in one competition before, but they can be head and shoulders above their competition with a small roster that they can fall multiple times and still win.

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.

Sure, Lepisto gets an honorable mention.

Michelle rarely completed less than 5 triples in her LP's, when other skaters rarely did more than 5 !

What is the question?

Who often fell and won anyway?

Or who was strong enough overall to be able to afford a couple of falls and still win?

If we're not asking the same question, naturally we won't come up with the same answers.

Carolina Kostner winning silver at the 08 WC with her craptastic FS....

It hasn't really happened since though. Well, I guess she won Euros last season with a messy 4 triple FS, but that wasn't really her fault, no one else with PCS competitive enough to challenge for the title skated well either.
