This summer, a dozen elite skaters entered their most testing competition yet, trying to outwit, outplay, and outlast each other in the hearts and minds of FSU. Ten have been voted out so far, including, most recently, Stéphane Lambiel, leaving us with Alexei Yagudin, who has dominated all the challenges so far, and outsider Daisuke Takahashi. Two skaters remain. Who should win? The original contestants were the last twelve men to win a World or Olympic title. The eliminaees are: Stéphane Lambiel (3rd) Evgeni Plushenko (4th) Ilia Kulik (5th) Patrick Chan (6th) Brian Joubert (7th) Jeffrey Buttle (8th) Elvis Stojko (9th) Evan Lysacek (10th) Todd Eldredge (11th) Alexei Urmanov (12th) The object here is to vote for the winner, using whatever criteria you want. People who post things like these ... ... will be put in the stocks, given remedial reading comprehension lessons and forced to watch a loop of selected Free Skate programs by Wolfgang Schwarz, Ondrej Nepela, Elvis Stojko, and Evan Lysacek. Since voting is anonymous, there will not be any re-tallying of votes based on claims of having voted for the wrong person. The two remaining skaters are: Alexei Yagudin: Worlds 1998, 1999, 2000, 2002, Olys 2002, Worlds Silver 2001, Worlds Bronze 1997 Daisuke Takahashi: Worlds 2010, Worlds Silver 2007, 2012, Olys Bronze 2010 Pick the winner!!!!!
