There isnt enough poll options for everyone. I can see why people think Joubert should have been included but it is funny to see people crying over the #4 Japenese skater or a 28 year old who retired years ago skating his best and coming 6th in a major event won by Lysacek arent included in a poll. There arent 25 poll options people.
True story. That's why I didn't bother doing one for men and ladies- just too hard to pick 12, especially for men. Maybe we need to run them like PSOTY and create 2 semifinal polls and then a grand finale poll with the top 6 from each.
1. Irina Slutskaya
3. Maria Butyrskaya
4. Julia Soldatova
6. Viktoria Volchkova
It also happened the year before (bonus points to who can guess the country/discipline):
1. Alexei Yagudin
2. Alexei Urmanov
3. Evgeni Plushenko
5. Alexander Abt
For the 1997 GPF, in the ladies discipline, Russia and the U.S. were the only countries represented:
1 Tara Lipinski
2 Michelle Kwan
3 Irina Slutskaya
4 Maria Butyrskaya
5 Olga Markova
6 Tonia Kwiatkowski
It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.
Poor Oda. He is so unloved just because he is no. 4.
Not that I'm diminishing his strong will not to let go of any chances given to him. He's a special skater, really.
