    Oh... my... god. I was apparently not caffeinated enough when I made this list. I've also forgotten Nancy and Tonya. Oh well, feel free to vote 'other' if these lovely ladies are your favourites.

    Another easy choice for me. Kwan is at the top of all my ladies' lists. There's little need to explain why. Certainly all the other ladies mentioned here deserve to be favorites too, and thank goodness we have them all to enjoy, but my vote now and always goes to Michelle.

    Yeah, it's hard not to vote for Michelle. Sasha is second for me. I know there are more accomplished skaters than Sasha on the list but I'm voting based on emotions, so I admit, I can't choose older skaters like Peggy Fleming and Janet Lynn, who I've only seen skate in fuzzy youtube videos. Kristi is third. If I were just a bit older Kristi would be even higher on my list I'm sure, but I only just caught the (admittedly great) end of her career. So there's just not the same emotional attachment ....

    Nicole Bobek, although I'm disappointed to find out she's a convict now or whatever

    The question is favorite skater. Michelle may win the best skater poll, if that question is posed. Meanwhile, favorite: Dorothy.

    I voted for Cohen, but I also loved the skating of Hamill and Fleming very much.

    Michelle Kwan, hands down. She's been my role model since I was little. =)
