    I voted for Kristi Yamaguchi. Even though she was pro some of the time she was easily the best female skater in the World from 1991-1995, and she would have still been competing with the likes of Kwan, Lipinski, and Chen for gold up until 1998 based on her skill set displayed in pro competitions.

    Dorothy Hamill would have been my 2nd choice. Michelle Kwan and Janet Lynn my 3rd and 4th choices.

    Although they won't be leaders in the poll, it would be nice to include Petra Burka and Karen Magnussen, since they are world champions, rather than relegating them to 'other'.

    I actually think Liz and Joanne were better skaters. I guess there is only so much room on a poll, but then again, once you read Cohen as an option it's hard to vote with all of the belly shaking and

    There arent 30 poll options you know (which is how many there would need to be for Burka to warrant inclusion).

    Hughes and Lipinski wouldn't be on my list in the first place, but as for the rest, I might as well just pick one out of the hat.

    Only difference for me is Michelle is the only skater who has ever moved me to tears...

    Come on, Gracie can't be in this poll. She'll be the only option in a poll for "Most Awesomest Awesome Skater Who Cannot Be Compared Ever In Life to Anyone Because She's So Freakin' Awesome!"

    So the poll choices would be "Gracie Gold" and "purple" then?
    My job requires me to be a juggler, but that does not mean that I enjoy working with clowns.

    Yes, but after a couple of posts people would still start answering 'Michelle'.

    Maybe rename it "How much do you like Michelle Kwan?"

    Then why go into the thread?

    Whilst it was obvious Michelle would win, its very interesting to see where everyone else finishes. Lovely to see Janet Lynn in second!

    She would've won this one I think even without the Kwan fans on the board. She really is the best, and 20 years from now she will still be the best because in NA she's left the biggest impact over the longest period of time. So many skaters over the past 12 years from NA have also had her influence in some way or looked at her as their idol, she's the current Olympic Champion's favorite skater and idol.

    But then again, these polls are always annoyingly skewered by the "I wasn't even born yet in 1998! " votes.
