    I voted for Diana, because her dress is more sparkly.

    DIANA! For she shares the same name as George's grandma.

    Poth, because Kim never dared to skate in a competition wearing a white see through nightie.

    Diana as her last name is much more fun to scream out loud in repetition at a skating comp.

    You didn't know the infamous Diana Poth and her Gone With The Wind program? To make her program more convincing, she famouly only wore a lingerie when skating to it to signify that her skating dress was "gone with the wind".

    Sorry, I usually don't have any interested in skaters who are not at top class level ;)

    But you said it so cool so I will search for her, thank you :cool:

    Poth is the greatest skater of all time. Much better than Yawn-Na Kim :blah:

    Poth almost won a medal at Euros, was it 1999? I believe she was fourth, and that was when she was wearing the lingerie, right?:D

    Yes, 1999. And she was so robbed. Choppy skating aside, she was much better than Volchkova. :swoon:

    I can't believe her amazing 1999 Euro free skate to GWTW isn't on youtube! :eek:

    I loved Poth's short program at the 99 Worlds. She was so undermarked. She should have been 3rd behind Butyrskaya and Rechnio. The judging was terrible that year though, especialy the short programs.

    It's close but I had to vote for Poth out of loyalty to my good ole friend potshusband. BTW, does he still post here?

    Looks like the Poth-bots are out in full force. Poor YuNa, she doesn't stand a chance.

    Should you maybe wear black velvet when you skate to Black Velvet? Instead of silver velvet?

    She is so sexy. I love that she rocked the white see-through nightie for like parts of 3 seasons! :swoon:

    She also had a great SP at 2000 Worlds to Still Got the Blues For You by Gary Moore. Definitely undermarked again...she did 3toe+3toe and solo 3flip to rank 13th, should have been top 8.

    Poor Yu-Na nothing. Let's be objective. All she has to do is wear a dress that's more sparkly than Diana, and she will get my vote, but she hasn't done that, has she?

    She still has time to get back on track. Her blue dress at the 2010 Olympics had a good deal of sparkle, so she is capable of wearing a sparkly dress. Perhaps she can top her 2010 effort at Sochi.

    If Yuna wears a spangled thong and twirling pasties for her short program, then and only then will she come close to Poth.

    This was my exact though. Who wears silver velvet to skate to black velvet?

    I've never heard of Poth. I found her posing and pseudo sex appeal to be very Plushenko like. Plus she jumps well. I'm not a Plushenko fan so much, but still- he is a very good skater, so that's a nice comparison for her. I didn't vote, but I MIGHT give the edge to Yuna.


    ETA: I just looked up this white lingerie outfit Poth skated in. Was it this?

    "'Rhapsody in Blue'?! But he's not wearing blue!"

    "Wine red?! But she's skating to "Song of the Black Swan"!"

    I voted for Poth, legitimately. All jokes aside, I honestly would watch her over Kim any day. I actually remember all of the programs mentioned here better than any of Kim's, and I haven't even seen her skate in like 8 years. My favorite program is her Question of U/Xotica LP from the 2003-04 season, but it's not on youtube.

    Do a google image search if you want to see some stunning, NSFW pictures of her.

    Yes, where is pothshusband anyway. :(

    kim's sp this year was so terrible
    what is that music? such like music of low-level movies.

    there were so many great choices she could chose like bolero, R&J, swan lake
    Sometimes, I can not understand her music choices. she had not good sense

    Agreed. I'm glad to see Poth receive some appreciation for her skating from the fans since the judges never seemed to know what to do with her. Those modeling photos of her are :smokin:. My internal dialogue when viewing them was to quote Pretty Woman, "Work it baby, work it, own it." LOL. I think she and her programs do have tons more personality and captivating flair than Kim ever has shown in competition or in exhibition.

    Diana Poth, of course! One of my all-time favourite ladies! She was never dull. I am still:rofl:when I remember how Chris and Simon on the British Eurosport used to drool after her.

    I am not glad that this thread (which I have enjoyed) is about to turn into Yuna bashing thread.

    I am a Yu-na fan after the tango de Roxanne. But, I voted for Dianna. She is so cool with this SP! And I didn't like Yu-na's SP at all for last season.
