    I love Brian's jumps, but it's pretty rare that his quads are particuly huge and lately he's been strugling to do them and it shows ( a part from the quad in his SP at the COR which was beautifully done).
    The same goes to Kevin: he's got great jumps, but his quads aren't all that big. He's more of a combo guy than a quad guy.

    Is Kevin in this poll meant to be KvDP or Kevin Reynolds?

    Either way. I have found many errors in this poll. My apologies.

    I'm actually not sure I'd say Kurt's quads were the best looking as an eligible... but it's fun to see the one he landed 10 years later in the Canadian Stars on Ice tour, at the age of 31 =)

    I chose Takahashi's and Elvis Stojko's will always be my favourite.

    Tim Goebel was and will always be the original quad king, nobody jumped and landed them like he did. To this day, he landed the most quads in competition more than any other skater. He was the first to land the Quad Salcow, and one of the first to put it in mulitiple combinations.

    Here is to Tim Goebel the True Quad King and Rightful 2003 World Champion
    (Will never forgive Plushenko for that)

    To be honest though the issue I have with Tim Goebel is that he always outrigged those salchows. In other words - he used the non skating foot to jump from as well as the jumping leg. The me that was wildly flawed technique which meant, to me, he shouldn't get as much credit as he does for thos quad sals. I'm sure under COP there's a bullet under the negatiev GOEs that refers to outrigging.

    What is there to blame Pluschenko for? If you think the result was wrong blame the judges not the skaters!

    For present: I voted for Brian because his look like he's confident he'll land them vs. the more common "well, here it goes..." (ala Evan & Johnny)

    I also voted other because nobody does a quad like Timothy - outrigging or not. He was simply awesome!

    Brandon Mroz' looked pretty textbook to me. Give him a year or two, some seasoning/testosterone to grow on, and look out

    I believe it is a typo. Should have been Stephan (Lambiel)

    Thank you! Should be perhaps corrected then
    I think there is a difference, if someone is Stephen Carriere or Stéphane Lambiel.

    No one can do it better than Plushenko. And he'll be back for winning his second Olimpic gold
