Elizaveta Tuktamysheva in her recent interview said she wants to be like Patrick Chan, who has best skating skills in the world. http://kr-znamya.ru/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=4981:2012-04-09-14-32-49&catid=48:people&Itemid=81

who would have thought, I never thought tuk tuk would like Chan, but i don't think Chan is her idol, maybe just admire him

to be like Patrick Chan, who is the best slide in the world.
and off topic, she looks like she gained weight. :wideeyes:

hope she sheds those extra fats for next season, she still has 5 months to go for a healthy diet.
but I am happy she has 2 new programs for next season.

btw I think it was mentioned, Yuna is also a fan of Chan

Some skaters seem to give different answers to this depending on whom they are speaking to, where and when; I think it's something that can evolve over time.

The Kerrs have referred to the Duchesnays as an inspiration.

In his recent IN interview, Kevin van der Perren mentioned liking Brian Joubert's skating style.

Joubert is of course a fan of Yagudin's, and I remember him speaking very positively about Michelle Kwan and Savchenko/Szolkowy in the past.

Hurtado/Diaz like Anissina and Peizerat, and Hurtado I think is a fan of Davis and White (Diaz may be too, for all I know ;)).

:lol: Actually, this is incorrect. Plushenko's idol was Viktor Petrenko!

And of course, we all know the old story of Artur Gachinski having a Plushenko clock in his bedroom.

Todd has said in interviews that his skating idols are Scott Hamilton & Brian Boitano.

Javier Fernandez said when he was young he really loved Plushenko and that now he likes Patrick Chan's skating.

Pluschenko had an idol ? :eek:

Gachinski is a poor man's Pluschenko clone :rofl:

Michelle Kwan's favorite is Brian Boitano

I remember an old fluff where it was announced that Michelle's idol was Tonya Harding!

Boitano was Michelle's mentor during the most course of her career. And in this year's WFSHOF induction ceremony, Brian introduced her!
