    Question The most popular/beloved skater/s worldwide recently?

    Lol, it's me again! Looks like I'm a real poll-junkie! This one is a really hard to assess one. The most popular/beloved skater wolrdwide recently! And worldwide actually means worldwide = Northamerica plus Europe plus Asia plus Australia! What do you think?

    No doubt! In numbers it has to be MK. She's born in the USA, and of course she has tons of fans there. This is only logical and natural. But in real, "worldwide" relation, which means when it comes down to the most international fans, I'd say Yagudin. If one has a look at his message boards it's fascinating to see from where they all come from; almost every corner of the world is represented!

    I think the concern for his well-being put Alexei out in front at this time. Similarly, Rudi. I also think that fans are excited about NNN making a comeback.

    right now internationally I would have to say Plush. He is the World Champ with many years ahead of him if he doesn't get injured.

    I voted for Kurt... though I realize Michelle and Yags are more popular... they're mostly a fad for most (at least they are here in Alaska) where as Kurt is loved by all ages and has been for years...

    I don't think any skaters are fads with true fans, it's just the once in four year watchers who go through skating fads. Where I come from people don't even know who Kurt Browning is, but I definitely don't consider him a fad.

    I can only describe the European sight of things: Nobody really cares about Michelle here. Yagudin and Plushenko are the stars!
