    Each skater was great in her own way and in that period in history. It's not accurate to compare Yuna to Sonja Henie.

    It is sad to see a poll like this and Janet Lynn, Dorothy Hamill, and Peggy Fleming with only 1 vote each and Irina Slutskaya with 10. So much partiality by people towards the recent stars (Kim, Kwan, Slutskaya) and against more past champions who were equally great or even greater in their own eras. Miki Ando on a poll like this and Madge Syers, Carol Heiss, and Herma Szabo not on it? A travesty.

    Hasn't this poll been done before? I voted for Kwan, but I'll change my mind to Kim if she wins the 2018 Olympics as well. I know Katarina's got two Olympic golds, but her quality just wasn't as good as Kwan's or Kim's.

    The great Trixi Schuba should have been on the poll. The greatest compulsory figures skater in history at a time compulsory figures was the most important aspect of the sport.

    Why wasn't Madge Sayre on the poll? If she wasn't able to hold her own against the big boys, like Ulrich Salcow, there wouldn't be a ladies single event.

    IIRC a male World Champion knew she actually performed better and gave her his gold medal.

    Ad nauseam ... the inventor of the layback spin and camel spin as well as the first lady to perform a double jump and first to perform a one footed Axel by anyone should be on this list.
