    Kiira and Yu-na...I might also have a crush on them, but I never made any promises to be objective :p.

    Other would be Oksana Baiul (ultimate fave) and Tara Lipinski.

    This is only the ladies of course.

    I think you can figure it out if you think hard enough. ;)

    FSWer is a long-time skating fan who listed some of his favorites that happened to be retired. If you have issues with his poll choices, just list your faves in your post, like many have done, or start a new poll yourself.

    Stupid poll all around. What's the point voting on your odd list?

    Simpler: It's a stupid poll, period. Why do the admins keep this poll in GSD for a while, move to TC, and then can't tolerate negative comment on it?

    As it is a Ladies' poll, all my current favorites go under "other"- Kostner, Asada, Suzuki. I enjoy many Ladies from the poll, though. Loved Sasha in her competition days.

    The problem with that kind of list is that we will have many Other !
    My current favorites are YuNa Kim and Carolina Kostner.
    I also really like Akiko Suzuki and Gracie Gold.

    From the past: Midori Ito, Lu Chen, Alexei Yagudin, Irina Slutskaya, Alexei Urmanov.

    At the moment: Daisuke Takahashi and Yuna Kim. I also like Javier Fernandez, Akiko Suzuki, Elena Radionova, Julia Lipnitskaya, and Elizaveta Tuktamysheva.

    I like most of the skaters, really. I always feel sorry when someone's disappointed with their performance, unless it appears that they haven't tried very hard.

    Current ladies: My favorites are Mao Asada and Yu-Na Kim. If I absolutely had to choose between them, it would be Mao. But I love them both. Runner-ups? Akiko Suzuki and Gracie Gold.

    Current men: Jason Brown. I like almost all the other men too, except for Gachinski and Chan.

    Current pair: Savchenko/Szolkowy. I enjoy them far more than any other pair.

    Current dance: Davis/White. I really like a lot of other dance teams too--Weaver/Poje, Cappellini/Lanotte, Pechalat/Bourzat, Hubbell/Donohue, Shibs. Am warming up a bit to Ilinykh/Katsalapov.


    As to past champions, I can't really choose, there are so many great skaters whom I love.

    It's so nice to hear that other people still like them. I really enjoy their skating and honestly one of my favorite pairs, sometimes it feels like no one else does :).
