    Best meaning it gets the most points or best meaning that it looks the nicest? Thats important to know before I can make my decision!

    Carolina Kostner. She has lovely stretch and extension (not extreme flexibility but thats fine with me, its SKATING, not a freak show!), and her edges and speed are amazing.

    That's what I think too, every time I watch Caroline Zhang. The time she spent on perfecting her "Pearl spin" she might have used to fixed her jumping technique and gained much better marks.

    <3 Caroline

    I love Caroline's vertical spiral; it has great control and stretch. It's beautiful. I am really glad the rules for spirals have changed, so many skaters have been getting high levels for ugly catch-foot spirals (sorry yu-na... I love your skating, but the spirals are yuck)

    Caroline has good extension and stretch, but the one thing that detracts from her spiral is that her leg is to the side rather than straight back . Everytime I watch her spiral, I want to go and fix it. Even if the spiral were lower, one straight to the back would be more beautiful in my opinion.

    Of the spirals today, however, Caroline's is definitely one of the best.
