During 2013-2014 season I became a new fan of these skaters ...
Jason Brown (charisma and skills)
Ross Miner (everything, and attitude)
Richard Dornbush (that short program at Nationals!)
Hannah Miller (podium next year!)
Piper Gilles / Paul Poirier
Meagan Duhamel / Eric Radford (EVERYTHING!)
Have you found a new cheer worthy skater this season?
- Rep Power
Elena Radionova! I'm so excited to watch her develop over the coming years.
Jason Brown and Julia Lipnitskaya
I also developed a mild soft spot for Adam Rippon. Good thing it was only mild or Nationals would have been worse for me than it already was.
And Jason Brown Won me over today.Great musicality really uses all of his body !

Besides the ones already mentioned, Purich/Tran and Polina Edmunds.
I was already a fan of Jason Brown, having seen him in the Jr GPF in Quebec City. He has progressed very well.
I was a great fan of the Zhangs, and this year have seen that Peng and Zhang will be even better. She is tremendous and he is still the same solid, goofy guy.
Purich and Tran were my dream pair, and I hope they mesh, blend and jell over the next 4 years.
Hurtado and Diaz caught my eye last March in London. I am a big fan.
Stolbova and Klimov are terrific. New to me, and right up there at the top.
I had seen Julia Lipnitskaya before but not like she is now. Wow!
Gaby Daleman has a great future. IMHO.
Jeremy Abbott - I'm so glad he finally skated the way I knew he could at the Olympics.
Majorov! (aka Stojko's body double) I really like him and hope we see more of him in the future.
Jason Brown and Castelli/Shnapir are the big ones also Ilinykh/Katsalapov and Lipnitskaia!
Jason Brown (I LOVE a performer and he's a phenomenal performer. Great future ahead of him.)
Yuzuru Hanyu (He just makes it looks so easy! Long future ahead of him too.)
Jeremy Abbott (I have a soft spot for him now and that SP from nationals was amazing)
Samantha Cesario (So fierce and fiery. Her Carmen might be my favorite ladies FS of the season)
Elena Radionova (I already kinda liked her from the 2012-2013 season but I flat out love her now!)
Gracie Gold (I didn't care much for Gracie prior to this season but she's grown on me. Going to Frank was the single best career decision she/the USFSA ever made.)
Julia Lipnitskaya (I liked her consistency but I didn't care for her skating; this year she's shown a lot of improvement so that's a plus in my book.)
- Rep Power
- Evgeni Plushenko: The alpha male of figure skating.
- Jason Brown: Awesome stage presence for a guy who also happens to be a consistent jumper.
- Gracie Gold: Consistent (so far), smart in interviews, easy on the eyes.
- Julia Lipnitskaya: Most likely the Sochi winner; relaxing to watch (you don't think she'll miss anything); also the future of the sport.
