    I know everyone will say Yu na, since she won the world championship, and they could be right. However, I picked Mao because of what she overcame this year.

    Carolina Kostner, but for what she showed besides Worlds and Euros ! lol
    She skated perfectly at Italian Nationals, and it was amazing.

    Yu-Na, because she was pretty much perfect at Worlds. Mao had some good results but I don't remember any of her programs being completely perfect. Carolina was flawed at Euros even though she won.

    Osmond, easily. Kaetlyn took a system that is dry and mathematical, and gave it a performance quality which she sold to the rafters. This is the one skater that has made me excited about the sport again.

    Akiko Suzuki. I really enjoyed everything she did this season, even at the World's when she skated below par.
    I smile everytime I watch her skate.

    I voted for YuNa, can't think of anyone else really as 'Best'. But Mao's LP and performance at GPF/Worlds are my personal 'Favorite'.

    I wouldn't pick Yuna because skated one competition this season. She didn't have the long season that most of the other girls did. I would say the overall best one would be Mao. I didn't really like her programs, but she was a champion at two of her events.

    Kim's 3 competitions were all better skating than what any of the other ladies did in any of their competitions all season. So easily her.

    Well, the question is so easy to answer: Queen Yuna

    But I like Carol in this season, especially in Worlds, not really her skating but her attitude, so cool

    What did she exactly overcome, unfavorable scoring rule changes? Questionable edge calls? Controversial losses? Loss of motivation?
