    This is a difficult decision and I'm a bit torn between Lipinski and Hughes. I think it was the absolute surprise of these victories that make them both stand-outs. Tara came out in Nagano and for one night had me drawn in by more than just the jumps, she really exhibited a fire and determination and I thought it was an incredible skate. Yet, Sarah Hughes and her performance in SLC would probably get my vote among this field. What a shock! I'd always enjoyed Sarah and been a fan but I'd never seen her put everything she had into a performance. WOW! She attacked but was elegant and poised, such a beautiful moment for her. And her face at the end was priceless! She had shocked even herself and done what no one in the world would have ever expected.

    I wouldn't call Tara's win an "absolute surprise". She was more of a co-favorite with Michelle.
    I voted for Tara's performance because she was pure joy that night. She totally owned the ice with that program. She might not have been as refined or sophisticated as some of the other skaters, but she had absolute authority in every single movement. Tara's youthfulness and excitement were and are still unmathed today.

    <span style="color:red;"><em><strong>Ummmm,

    Oksana Baiul, her program was really good, the rest of those performances were just technical performances...ie..Sarah Hughes, Tara Lipinski...Kristi Yamaguchi won on a rather lackluster performance.

    SO OKSANA</strong></em></span>

    It's not my favorite but Tara and Sarah's stick with me the most because, to me, they were both so unexpected. I was rather shocked after both of them.

    My favorite would be Kristi's. She is such a class act and always has been.

    Mine was definitely Sarah Hughes! She skated well, not only with the jumps, but also emotionally! :D

    Probably Dorothy Hamill's performance, who wasn't listed. Or Carol Heiss.

    I had a hard time picking between Tara and Sarah. I ended up choosing Sarah. I think coming from behind as she did merited my vote.

    I voted for Tara. I watched it again a couple of times the other day. It was just incredible.

    While the other ladies are certainly wonderful skaters, I have to say Oksana. She's a classic!

    Doris, I'm with you. I voted for "other" because Dorothy's performance stood out in my mind over the other ladies.....42

    Gotta be Sarah....total underdog all the way, and then on that night, she needed all the stars to align exactly, and skate perfectly....and of course, both happened!

    Definitely Kristi. I really wanted her to win and she did (even though it was not a perfect performance).
