    Current ladies: My favorites are Mao Asada and Yu-Na Kim. If I absolutely had to choose between them, it would be Mao. But I love them both. Runner-ups? Akiko Suzuki and Gracie Gold.

    Current men: Jason Brown. I like almost all the other men too, except for Gachinski and Chan.

    Current pair: Savchenko/Szolkowy. I enjoy them far more than any other pair.

    Current dance: Davis/White. I really like a lot of other dance teams too--Weaver/Poje, Cappellini/Lanotte, Pechalat/Bourzat, Hubbell/Donohue, Shibs. Am warming up a bit to Ilinykh/Katsalapov.

    As to past champions, I can't really choose, there are so many great skaters whom I love.

    It's so nice to hear that other people still like them. I really enjoy their skating and honestly one of my favorite pairs, sometimes it feels like no one else does :).

    Why are Emily Hughes, Alexe Gilles and Danielle Kahle on this list??????
  15. Sylvia

    Sylvia Prepping for club comp. season!

    Because it's FSWer's poll and he wants them to be included?

    As I posted earlier... FSWer is a long-time skating fan who listed some of his favorites that happened to be retired. If you have issues with his poll choices, just list your faves in your post, like many have done, or start a new poll yourself.

    I voted "Other." My all-time favorite skaters are Gordeeva & Grinkov.

    Too many to count, but:

    Women: Michelle Kwan and Mao Asada
    Men: Patrick Chan and Brian Orser (and late 80s/early 90s Victor Petrenko before he got too Vegas), also Vladimir Kotin
    Pairs: Gordeeva and Grinkov as well as Berezhnaya and Sikhauradlize
    Dance: Klimova/Ponnamarenko and Usova/Zhulin

    Karpenko Not Impressed.

    Because it takes less time than the reply you typed out. ;)


    But I actually like this group of ladies a lot. I think my favorites are Mao Asada and Yuna Kim, I like them both so much more than before.

    If Sotnikova didn't have that awful posture she would be my favorite, there's something really special about her..

    I love Mirai, Ashley and Gracie are good solid skaters with easy to root for talent, Osmond is a truck but she's fast and sassy/perky. The euro ladies are relevant again, overall it's maybe the strongest group of talent ever in ladies.

    Had to pick one though my favorite would be Mirai, but she has to get through (hopefully she's working like crazy) boot camp. I really hope she does..
