    Who Is the Queen of Skating Moms?

    Someone in another thread suggested that some Skate Canada official could be sued for calling Yuna Kim's mother the "Queen of Skating Moms." As I learned in law school, you can always sue, but you can't always win. Also, truth is a defense to a claim for defamation.

    That raises the question: Who is the Queen of Skating Moms? I propose that we solve it with a poll. For purposes of this poll, we will be using the skater's last name, which isn't necessarily the mother's.

    Marjorie Chin takes the cake, IMO.

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    This is not a vote . . . It was Pappa Henie, not Momma Henie.

    Don't underestimate Momma Henie. She's included in this poll for good reason.

    We should separate them by weight class.

    Carole Yamaguchi. Daughter followed Mom's tradition of giving her children Anglo first names but Japanese middle names.

    Mummy Asada, hands down.

    AFAIK, Not many coaches have said "I will no longer work with skater xx as a coach-consultant, I am too tired of fights with the skater's mom."

    Refer to this post if you have any doubts.

    You forgot Mama Cohen!

    This is too difficult to vote on.

    Since too many moms like McDonough, Bonaly, Jutta Muller and Poppa Henie (first skating mom no matter his gender) were left off I voted for Mama Chin.

    I don't know if she was the greatest (or worst depending on your perspective) but she was the first to break though to wider fame and became the public face of Skating Moms from Hell for a generation.

    I think like all "Greatest Ever" polls, this should leave out current Skating Moms and just concentrate on the historic figures.

    Why was Jutta Muller left off the list, she was a skating mom _and_ coach. How terrifying is that?

    You forgot about the reason for this poll:

    A head-to-head between Momma Kim and Momma Asada might be interesting, though.
