I think a skaters completerecord contribute to their legacy, therefore I always count Kristi world jr told in pairs as part of her legacy. Now you are switching to performances as part of a skaters legacy. Please note that is very subjective. You think Yuna's best performance is better than MK's, others think the opposite . BTW I will never doubt your count for Yuna the 14, I know never doubt a fan's statistic about their favorite. I amnot sure your count of 19 for Mk is entirely accurate. She turned senior at 13, and won olympic festival comp that year, then I think she has a perfect winning record at SA. She don't think she competed at 4CC (because USA ladies field, US federation doesnot send top guns to 4CC< so if you include 4CC wins in YuNa's column in someway it skews the comparison). Mk practically won all skate canada including 1997 where she broke her toe).Originally Posted by Daniel5555
Interesting concept, so we may add Fumie, and Kostner to Kwan's legacy since they too said Kwan inspired them.I think that Yuna Kim actually can be considered Kwan's legacy too which only adds to how really historically important she was, inspiring not only American skaters, but skaters worldwide.
And I thought Janet Lynn is MK's favoriteBut at the same time I think that Michelle's fans also should consider Yuna, because she is the favorite skater of Michelle Kwan.
