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

I have to say I initially misread this.... :eek: :yikes:

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

As far as I know, Yuna has not ever said especially about Chan.
Although I predict she will think that Chan is a great skater.

Well, Yuna did mention before Chan's Tango de exilados as one of her favorite programs.

[in January 2000 korean article..]
Yuna Kim is in the third grade of Sinheung elementary school. (...snip...)
Kim says that her favorite skater is Michelle Kwan who skates well.

[in December 2007 IFS article..]
Asked if there was a skater she admired as she was growing up Kim answered without hesitation. "Michelle Kwan."

[in April 2011 korean article..]
"When I was little, my idol was figure skater Michelle Kwan. Her performance at the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics inspired me.
I watched Michelle's performance hundreds of times and I would imitate her expressions and sometimes try out my own versions.
I was deeply impressed by her incredible talent and her devotion for figure skating.
I always admired the way she would captivate the audience with her charismatic performances, and how seriously she took figure skating.
I also respect Michelle for her devotion and hard work in another field, walking toward a new chapter in her life after her skating career."

I love Yuna's consistency of admiring Kwan. lol :)

Here is a clip of Patrick when he mentions he would like to skate like Lambiel, and if he could skate pairs it would be with Yu na Kim.

In this new interview Reut did with Stephane Lambiel for Absolute Skating, Lambiel said when asked about the scoring system,

"On the other hand I think it's interesting because the fantastic champions still, even with all those rules, find new things and bring more than just the elements. That's why I love Tessa and Scott (Virtue/Moir), because when you watch them you don't see the rules, you see the story, the emotion."

Meryl Davis said she really admired Abbott's skating and his musicality (something to that affect).
