    Greatest Lady Skater Of All Time

    I know it's like comparing apples and oranges. If you had to pick just one... the one who made the most impact on you, who would it be? Why? Technical superiority? Artistry?

    My own personal vote goes to Janet Lynn, who, in my opinion, was the most amazing artist I've ever seen. If I could cast a second vote, it would be for the Oksana who won gold in '94.

    I just realized that I should have added Kristi Yamaguchi to that list, but it's too late now!

    I voted for Michelle. She has had a lot of great programs, especially "Fields of Gold". :D

    That's a great list of names anyway.

    I had to go with Michelle because I can't think of any skaters that have had as many "skate of a lifetime" moments. You could argue for days about what her best performance/program is and still change your mind 5 seconds later.

    Being that I always have to be different, I voted for other. I had to go with Carol Heiss. 4 time US champion plus 5 time World Champion. One of the few skaters to have more the one Olympic medal.

    Rachael = If you are going with Carol then I am going with Tenley. Now there was a heated rivalry. Carol's technical v. Tenley's artistry. How can one decide?

    I would have to say either Michelle, Oksana, or Katarina. I can't decide!! Oh and Irina as well. I chose Katarina though.

    I probably should have added Sonja Henie to that list as well! Oh, well. The maximum options for a poll is 10.
