It kind of blows my mind that the skater with possibly the most perfect two programs in Olympic history appears to be the next one to go over someone like Yamaguchi, whose program was far from perfect.

I think Fleming should go but since it is clear she wont I voted for Yamaguchi only since her OGM winning performance was sluggish and dissapointing, and I am dissapointed she didnt come back to win a 2nd gold in 94.

Kristi is the weakest link in this round IMO.

Yep, except for the part about Fleming.

I voted Yamaguchi, but it's hard to compare some of these people because as time went on, jumps and things became more difficult.

I agree with you and voted the same way this time.

This is a joke. Dorothy and Peggy aren't anywhere near as good as the others. The sport has evolved, meaning the skaters have gotten better and better.

Yeah, and Dorothy and Peggy are old 'n stuff too. They can't even do double jumps now.

I feel like Fleming and Hamill may obviously be better at things such as figures, but otherwise their technical was clearly lacking compared to the other skaters. Not only that, since the new system was put into effect, skating has really gotten a lot more intricate. When you watch programs from 15 or so years ago, all you see is skate-skate-skate- jump. Now you see tons of connecting steps and intricate moves, jumps that are seamlessly linked with footwork, etc.
