Its almost the end of 2011. Hence, a simple poll to find who was the best skater(s) of the calendar year 2011.

As always, the nominations will be controversial so sorry if I miss out anybody's fav

Please note that I have omitted Worlds silver medallist Kim Yu Na as she only competed once during the season. Also omitted Elizaveta Tuktamysheva as she competed mostly at a junior level during the year and will therefore go into the best junior poll.

Voted for Caro, though would have voted for Liza :)

I would have voted for Miki if she didn't took a season's off after Worlds
but I have to give this to Carolina Kostner, her improvements and her best seasons' yet.

Weaver/Poje should be an option. Their improvement was tremendous.

Aliona/Robin for being such a breath of fresh air in pair's skating and challenging themselves artistically. Their LP this season is phenomenal!

Carolina for having finished on the podium 11 times in a row (who would have thought) and for setting herself apart from the rest of the field with her skating, her programs and her costumes :kickass:

Patrick Chan for his Canadian & World Championships LP performances. I am not so impressed by him this season but wow, those two performances were so incredibly difficult and well executed, you gotta give it to him, that was amazing.

I voted Javier Fernandez because his improvement is extremely impressive.

Gold (1): Patrick Chan - For his insane, record breaking skates. For pushing himself artistically with Aranjuez. For his Nationals LP, a skate I'll revisit time and time again.

Gold (2): Savcehnko/Szokowy - For their greatest LP (skate) ever at Worlds 2011. For an audacious, ambitious LP the following season. For rebooting their careers. For being one half a thrilling rivalry.

Bronze: Virtue/Moir - For pushing themselves technically, artistically and otherwise with their Latin Trio and Funny Face. For reminding audiences that they're still a force to be reckoned with. For being one of the all time greats.

Savchenko and Szolkowy for both their 2010-2011 programs and their 2011-2012 programs

Virtue & Moir.

Amazingly, they have become EVEN BETTER than they ever were! WOW! :respec::cheer::rockstar:

Virtue/Moir. And where's Akiko?

12-23-2011, 02:30 AM

LOL!!! Yeah I sorta agree, she will always be the best skater whatever the year, along with Yuna Kim.

Nevertheless I voted for Dai! Because his skating this year is just swoon worthy! Like matured finewine. And I'd pick Hanyu second, like spring water from mount Fuji :P

And I'd reserve an extra spot for Patrick for best skater when he is on his feet for more than 1 minute.

Chan gets my vote. Savchenko/Szolkowy and Takahashi are my second and third choices, respectively.
