I disagree that Kwan was the weakest technically of the 4. Girlfriend regularly laid down 7 triple programs while the others 3 mostly did only 6 triple programs. She's the most consistent on the list, and gave the most clean performances of the 4. Irina may have done a 3z/3r but how often and how cleanly?

I think many people may confuse technique and athleticism.
Michelle's jumping technique is definitely very good. But she is not the most athletic from the list.

I don't really like any of them. :shuffle: I voted for Kwan because she held my interest the least. No cool spins, no voids, no 3a or difficult triple triple. Too vanilla for my tastes.

Technically they are all very good. But in terms of technical ABILITY, Michelle gets left behind.
Artistically Irina is slightly less behind
Because most of this poll ive based my vote about 70% technical and 30% artistic, im voting out Michelle

dont hate

Her butchering of Bolero sticks in y mind today. I actually didn't like that many of her iconic programs. I didn't like dream of desdemona. I HATED song of the black swan.
I loved her Salome and lyra Angelica as well as Rachmaninoff and East of Eden.

I love this word !

Oh, come on. Remember her brilliant portrayal of Bullwinkle the moose (complete with antlers)?? I thought it was a pretty bold artistic statement.

Or her classic LP to "Where have all the chickens gone?"

When a skater brings their love for animals to the ice, it's no small thing. It's lovely to occasionally bring chickens into the spotlight. Those humble animals are served for lunch and dinner but do we ever step to think about them when we are not eating them?

So, in other words, you loved her 4 most iconic programs and didn't like two of her less iconic programs :shuffle:

I have no idea what this program has to do with chickens...

And I find her Tosca very expressive. Certainly better than Michelle's version where she just skates from one jump to anothe. It's like jump, jump, jump, jump with no choreography (otherwise she probably wouldn't have been able to land those triples) and then finally straight line footwork.
