Dick Button has shared his views as to what makes a "great" figure skater -- "A great skater is one who has made the sport better just because he, she, or they have participated in the sport." :D
That being the case, I nominate the following to be designated
as "great" skaters".
Barbara Ann Scott
Ludmila and Oleg Protopopov
Barbara Underhill and Paul Martini
Irina Rodnina and Alexandr Zaitsev
Tracy Wilson and Robert McCall
Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean
Katia Gordeeva and Sergei Grinkov
Judy Blumberg and Michael Siebert
Tai Babilonia and Randy Gardner
Natalia Mishkutenok and Artur Dmitriev
and the list goes on and on..........
