Some of the skaters that impressed me so much in person (mostly in terms of their speed!) were Oksana Baiul, Todd Eldredge, G&G, and B&S.
Two other skaters that I thought were amazing live, not necessarily in terms of speed, but in their ability to reach the audience with their performances, were Michelle Kwan and Dorothy Hamill.
Ryan B.: Very entertaining to watch...Charisma with a capital C.
I have never seen Patrick compete live, but have seen him practice a handful of times when he was in Orlando, and he impressed me as well in terms of his overall skating quality.
