Michelle Kwan. She absolutely blew me away at 96 worlds... I've been an uber ever since...

Second place goes to NNN

Mao, Sasha, Miki and Kimmie to a smaller extent made stunning debuts but never reached out & grabbed me from the first second like Kwan & NNN - even though I always paid attention to what they were doing.

I never got the whole Tara thing...

As for the latest crop - I'm more looking forward to seeing them develop as athletes & artist vs. deciding whose the best - Im waiting for puberty, nerves and normal teen age angst to pass before I start paying attention to individuals vs. looking at the whole - but in a sport where 18 can be seen as over the hill one must wonder if they will have time...
