I've read a number of posts here at this particular forum, and I've come to the conclusion that Oksana Baiul has not been given her fair due for the excitement that she brought to Ladies Singles skating in the mid-90's. In 1993 and 1994 Oksana Baiul was the most exciting Ladies Singles skater in the World - 2nd to none.
And less you think that I'm simply an over emotional Baiul fan, let me also tell you that in the last two decades Katarina Witt would have to rate on my list as having the most gravitas of all the Ladies Singles skaters. Not to take anything away from Michelle Kwan - she too will become legendary. Yet, Michelle is of an era younger than Katarina's.
Just due to the fact that a person is not old enough to remember a skater when that skater competed, does not mean that you toss away that skater's accomplishments. I was not old enough to understand the accomplishments of Carol Heiss, howevwer I certainly give Heiss credit were credit is due for her skating success.
