    I know he made mistakes but I just love Patrick Chan. So elegant, so cute, so talented!

    Among the podium, it's Daisuke!

    But overall, it's Joubert. He bombed this Olympics but he'll always have his 06-07 season.

    I never really liked Johnny that much, but after the men's event he is the Champion in my heart. It wasn't about difficult elements, it wasn't about whether you underrotated a jump or jumped with a wrong edge; he brought something different that others didn't, and that was more than enough for me.

    shocking, I know, but I voted Evan...

    and I'm pleased to see he's not last in this poll

    my heart's podium is Evan, Stephane, and Johnny (starts to sing one of these things is not like the other...)

    Honestly, I wanted Stephane to get it. His long from 07-08 was the best of this Olympic cycle, his movement is just so

    Daisuke, because he skated with more fire and passion (and waaaaaaaaaay better artistry) than anyone else in the field that night. Damn quad. =/

    I predicted Plushenko to win, but in my heart I rooted for Lysacek. Such a pity that Takahashi did not get the silver medal, he would have deserved it better than the over-scored Plushenko.

    Oda. I'm heartbroken he had such a rough free skate, with the lace, plus he looked scared to death.

    I was wishing he'd have a perfect skate, and throw the 4-3 as he did it so beautifully in practice. (And his is so much more gorgeous than Plushy's!)

    I voted for Plushenko.
    Even with crappy footwrok and mediocre spins, he showed such presence of a champion.
    I was surprised by my self actually liking his kiss blowing and posing acts.
    I guess legends aren't legends for nothing.

    BTW, I thought Lysacek deserved the OGM under the current scoring system.

    I like them all actually quite a lot, they work hard and have different styles, so it's hard to compare.

    This is a tough one.

    If it's about who I would have liked to have seen Olympic champ because of their performance at Olys, then it's Johnny. Florent Amodio's performance captured my heart too.

    If it's about who I would have wanted to have a gold-medal winning performance, then it would either be Brian or Stephane. Brian made me love figure skating and Stephane - well do I really need to comment?
    I voted for Stephane

    Plushenko will always be the better skater for me, although on the performances at this Olympics, I would have loved to see Takahashi win which, if he'd landed the quad, I think he would have done. For me, on the night, his was the complete performance irrespective of the fall on the quad.
