I'll never forget how fast Suguri was when I saw her live. It's :eek:

Oh yeah she used to be fast. Shizuka is really fast too.

To me Kostner and Kim have the Best speed from current field.

If I had to rank "speedyness" in the top ladies, my list would look something like this:

Kostner
Kim
Nagasu (on a good day)
Rochette (known in the early 2000's as Rocket Rochette)
Asada (on a good day)
Lepisto
Phaneuf

Not sure how Cohen or Ando can be considered fast. I found both their weaknesses to be their speed.

Kostner, Kim, Nagasu, Lepisto come to mind.
I also noticed Biryukova's speed was quite good.

Yeah, live Cohen is not fast. Not noticeably slow, but average speed.

I haven't seen her live, but Lepisto always looks like she's blazing past the boards with no visible effort.

I wish I had seen Suguri live when she was in her prime. :(

As far as I've seen live, Arakawa had the best speed (Kostner was the close second on a good day). Shizuka always made the rink look small. Kanako was remarkably fast when I saw her at JGPF 2009. She was smaller than now back then, but she looked bigger and taller and had presence on the ice because of her speed.

Murakami looked like the energizer bunny to me at Skate America -- speedy because her legs were stroking quickly. Kostner, Arakawa, and Suguri had effortless speed, taking just a few strokes to go the length of the ice.

Suguri (she still has some good speed now) and Kostner definitely top the list.

LOL at all the Arakawa, Suguri, and Murakamis.
To some, Japanese skaters can't do anything wrong and best at everything.
