    Greatest Ladies Singles Skater From North America Of All Time?

    There have many GOAT polls down the years. So this is a GOAT poll with a difference - a regional GOAT poll.

    Hence, who is the greatest ladies singles skater from North America of all time?

    Nominations will be controversial, so apologies if I have missed out anybodies favourite - in which case just choose 'other'

    I wonder...
    I hear outside a million panicking birds, and know even out there comfort is done with; it has shattered even the stars, this creature at last come home to me.

    Exactly. Kwan will win this poll in a landslide and Ito will win the Asian poll in a landslide. No suspense whatsoever.

    hey, ya neveah know. If you'd told me that Irina would be beating both Henie and Witt as best Euro Lady Ever, I'd say you were smoking ESTA's crack pipe, no body could possibly actually believe that!

    Not for the first place, but may be for the second place.

    I voted Janet Lynn because I believe she is the greatest skater ever from North America. I'd vote for the Kween if the poll asked for the greatest competitor.

    I voted Peggy Fleming. She had artistry, athleticism AND she could do those medal-chance-killing figures!

    I voted for Michelle Kwan for a few reasons:

    1. Her record is unprecedented and unreplicated;
    2. I grew up in the Kwan era;
    3. She's one of a very small number of skaters who've moved me to tears over a program.

    She got my vote immediatly after reading her name in the poll option. But I'm not surprised at all at the overall results !
