Oh interesting thread!
Partner: Andrew Poje, Stephane Lambiel, Alex Shibutani, Tomas Verner, Brian Joubert!!!
Body Shape: Yuna Kim, Mao Asada
Spins: Alissa Czinsy, Sasha Cohen
Speed: Patrick Chan, Carolina Kostner
Jumps: Yuzuru Hanyu
Choreographer: Myself :P Or if I had to choose a famous one, Pasquale Camerlengo.
Swan Song: I dreamed a dream - Les Mis
Country: Venezuela :P Had to choose a tropical, unrepresented country.
Style: Hardest technical content, and a lot of raw emotions and abandon, much like Yuzuru Hanyu
Costumes: Nice and simple, but looks expensive
Skating is art, if you let it be.
I'd be myself with more money at a younger age.
Body type: I would need to be shorter because I'm way too tall at 5ft10(i'm a girl he he)
Partner: Andrew Poje(he is passionate, and very nice to look at),
Style: I love tango, I would like to skate on a Tim burton inspired program on a waltz
I would probably switch to speed skating.
Interesting to see no one yet has picked the current ladies' reigning Olympic champion with the second highest FS program score ever.
I would be a female singles skater.
I would concentrate mainly on spins, step sequences and flexibility, so that my triples would be rather poor. However, imagine the spins that combine all the best from Lucinda, Alissa, Caroline, Sasha and Julia . I would always be the one that people would like to do well, but I would crumble under pressure.
My signature move would be some crazy layback.
I would represent Poland, so that my country could invest more in figure skating and make it more popular.
My choreographer would be each year Rohene Ward for one program and Michelle Kwan and/or Tarasova for the second (well, strange pairing, I know. Michelle would do most of the work and Tarasova would make sure I have all the levels and create a step sequence).
My main coach would be Michelle with Lucinda as a spins specialist and Christy Krall as a jump technician.
My swan song would be definitely Pocahontas. I would skate to different kinds of music, because I would not like to be thought of as a skater who can interpret only one type of music.
My costumes would be simple.
One day, you will have to tell me all about your ankles saga! It must be fascinating

I'd be a female singles skater. Since I'm tall and blonde, I'd go for the looks of Kiira Korpi, with the flexibility of Julia Lipnitskaya, with Akiko's lightness, musicality, and interpretation, the jumps of Miki Ando, and Carolina's basic skating skills. I would have the charisma and wit of Johnny Weir, who, incidentally, would also design my costumes
I would train with Brian Orser iin Toronto. My choreographers would be Pasquale Camerlengo and Rohene Ward, and I would skate to, for example, Nina Simone's Feeling Good, Sibelius's Valse Trieste, and Norihiro Tsuru's Last Carnival.
I would represent Iceland and would become the first Icelandic skater to win the Euros. Despite my awful competition nerves, I would have a long and pretty successful career and would be remembered for my beautiful lines, musicality, exquisite spins and dynamic jumps
After my competitive career I would remain active in the sport and eventually become the president of the ISU. I would promptly kick out the speedskaters and ask active skaters and coaches to help revise the judging system so that it rewards more the things that the skaters do well and gives the skaters more freedom of expression, especially in the FS.
An Icelandic Kostner. How exciting! Will there be any dRaMa on IcE? Bootlaces breaking up, crashing into the boards, withdrawing 1 minute before you're due to skate, etc?
If you rule the ISU, please bring back the 6.0 system. But alas, Speedy will outlive everyone.
Matilda - I like your style!
On the Ice
Hmmm...this is an interesting thread. I don't have a graceful bone in my body, so I would probably be more "athletic" ala Tonya Harding or Surrya Bonaly (without the knee wacking or tantrum throwing) lol.
Putting my (lack of) ability aside, I would want to be Sasha Cohen with the consistency of Michelle Kwan.
Coach: Maybe Brian Orser or Carla Fassi
Choreo: Myself or David Wilson
Music: Anything Mozart. Especially Eine Kliene Nachtmusik and Requiem In D Minor (Introitus & Kyrie)
Costumes:Elegant. Maybe something in silver or blue. Nothing to flashy.
