Yes, non-skating fans don't know a lot of current skaters. I guess that's because skating was more popular in the 90s. When talking to non-skating fans, normally the only people they know are. Scott Hamilton, Brain Boitano, Johnny Weir, Michelle Kwan, Tara Lipinski, Oksana Baiul, Kristi Yamaguchi, Ekaterina Gordeeva. Some of them do know Lysacek, but some of them only know him because of Dancing with the Stars. None of the people I talked to knew who Joannie was.

Nobody I know outside of the skating world knows who Johnny is. Some know Evan, because of Dancing with the Stars, Nobody knows who Yu Na is, nobody knows Mao, Many know who "the Canadian girl who lost her mother at the Olympics" is...it all depends on who you talk to and, means absolutely nothing.
