    We already know who is everyone's favorite male skater from Switzerland (Lambiel). What about the ladies? Who is your favorite?

    To be honest, I had not even heard the names of some of their national champions, so I have only included the well known ones in this poll. You still have the 'Other' option.

    Sarah Meier. Her Euros win is so memorable, and I always liked her. I do like Biellmann and Ruh too though.

    Natalie's spins were nuts. Apparently at a Skate Canada interpretive event once, her entire program consistent almost of one spin.

    Too bad her jumps were so hit and miss.

    Difficult.
    Denise Biellmann is amazing, of course.
    And both Lucinda Ruh and Sarah Meier had memorable programs I loved (1999 Worlds LP for Lucinda, 2006 Euros SP or 2006 LP for Sarah).
    My favorite to watch is probably Sarah Meier.

    Denise Biellmann is first. Amazing athleticsm and skills well into her 40s. Would have dominated the late 70s and early 80s without stupid figures and more finances.

    Natalie Kreig is 2nd. People say Lucinda Ruh is the best spinner ever but she really isnt, Kreig is. Her spins are just as fast, centred, perfectly positioned, but she does a much wider variety of different spins, and more original and difficult spins than Ruh does too. Her personality on the ice is amazing, and she has really good footwork and spirals. Ruh was a nice artistic skater, but kind of boring. Both are weak jumpers.
