    And they're both rock steady. But if it's for my life, I'd want Meryl.

    How can people say YK ? Women's FS has never been as competitive as the men's if one looks objectively.

    If I was picking.

    Men: No one beats Plushenko. Iin fact no one gets within visual distance of a guy that has been at or very near the top for 16 yrs even after operation after operation after operation. Like him or not, legend.

    Pairs: Totmianina/Marinin. Takes more than balls to stay with a guy who dropped you like that, and then win OGM etc.

    Ice Dance: Torvill and Dean (skaters will come and go, but Bolero will NEVER be topped, 6's across the board is one of the greatest moments in FS history and I was there to watch it live on tv).

    Fun fact: Bolero was longer in length than the Free Skate time limit. But ISU rules stipulate that a dance doesn't start until the skates are on the ice which is why T&D are knelt down swaying from left to right for the first x seconds of the programme.

    And if I had to choose from the women.

    Lipnitskaya: Barely 15 yrs old, Olympic Games, massive home crowd pressure and expectation. Delivered with diamonds.

    Growing several inches vertically is not the challenge. Retaining her jumps after she turns into a woman is.


    Anyway, to answer the question, Plushenko. Always and forever.

    In runner-up position: Max. Because at least he'd fight for my life!

    I'd say Yu Na Kim, and 2010 Evan Lysacek. Unlike with most, you're nerves of how they would perform would just sort of melt away once they got to the ice

    After these Olympics, I'd def. go with Yuna Kim as my pick for life-vest.

    Throwing out Lipniskaia bc she has shown she's not as mentally tough (yet) as people hastily assumed she'd be.

    Basically the Yuna part, if she values my life as much as the Olympics. She has a 100% batting avg when stakes are the highest, so I'd go with her for ladies.

    Also a healthy Plushenko for Men (no brainer; I would trust no one else out of this Sochi2014 crowd, for good reason) and Davis/White for Dance. Not sure for pairs ... maybe Shen/Zhao; definitely not V/T as they have a history of making all sorts of "creative" mistakes - too risky.

    for me, too, no question. But I would not tremor at all if they weren't around and YuNa showed up instead
