There's a 5 where the 6 should be in this thread title.

I'm voting for Witt again.

I don't like Katarina Witt's style. But the weakest for me is Peggy.

It's so weird. In the round 5 Peggy got only 10 votes while Yuna got 44. As soon as this round started, Peggy got more votes than Yuna. :rofl::rofl:
This is why these kinds of polls are meaningless, isn't it?
Maybe FSU should disclose who voted for who also in Ladies just like some of other polls.

I cant believe Yu Na is getting so many votes amongst this group. The only one of these who even compares to her is Hamill and "maybe" Yamaguchi (now gone anyway) due to her longevity and pro career. I LOL at the idea she was a weaker skater than Fleming or Witt even considering the eras they skated in.

Many posters in previous rounds stated that they were gonna vote for Peggy but since Kristi was on the edge, they went for her. Reasonable guess is that votes that were for Kristi are now going for Peggy.

And Konspiracy theory is already boring:blah:

One word: figures. Put 2010 Yuna in an 80s comp and she's so far back after the first segment that there's no point continuing to skate.

Same scenario for 1966-1968...Peggy and Co. could've possibly wiped the floor with Yu-Na after Compulsory Figures, that not even Yu-Na's 3Lutz-3Toe would save her (even against Peggy's SE-2Axel-SE-Layback... :swoon:)
