    LOL
    Not enough "oldsters" to think "no contest - Janet Lynn"

    I think, most of the voters was not able to watch Janet Lynn in the early 70's (World silver medalist in 1973). She was far ahead of her own time.
    Extremly graceful, beautiful skater with fantastic jump techique. When she lost she did because of her rather weaker compulsory figures.

    You all would love her, I'm sure.

    Kristi Yamaguchi. I am shocked someone put together a list of top US Ladies and managed to exclude her.

    I voted for Sasha, but I like Yamaguchi, Fleming, Hammill, Hughes, Lipinski and Wagner a lot, too!

    I'm kinda torn between michelle and sasha. Sasha has beautiful skating but she can't jump. Michelle can do casual jumps, but her skating styles are normal like many other girls, and she can't do the huge 3-3. Therefore, I will go for Peggy Fleming. I love her spread eagle into axel jump. I've never see anyone do it beautiful like that.

    Of course, my favorite is The Kween! But Janet Lynn is a close 2nd, followed by Kristi Yamagushi & Dorothy Hamill.

    Oops, just realized I probably gave away my age!!!!
