There are lot's of lower ranked skaters I have loved both in the present & past.
Okay, they were lower ranked for a reason. Being inconsistent, slow across the ice, not trying as difficult moves as others & so on.
But I'd really like to find out on this thread who else loved the lower ranked skaters. Who you liked, why you liked them & the programes you remember them doing.
Some of my faves are IDORA HEGEL-The 2004 Worlds Free Skate stands out for me. She seemed like a real character. And I really enjoyed watching her.
ELENA GLEBOVA-I know she's still around but she had so much potential a few years back but seems to have stalled. Her Short at the 2009 Skate America was my fave from her.
TUGBA KARADAMIR-Always a pleasure to watch. A real positive attitude in the kiss & cry. Her Short at the 2008 Europeans was the best I saw her skate.
TEODORA POSTIC-Robin Cousins was always quite critical of this girl when he was on commentary but even though she was very inconsistent I still loved watching her. Her Free Skate at the 2006 Europeans my fave from her.
So please tell me who you liked, not just ladies skaters but all lowere ranked skaters !.
