If FireOn keeps fire on with other random comparisons of skaters from past you might have to google to learn about, I’m all in. It’s educational to say the least!
I agree; it's always interesting to examine skaters from different viewpoints and think about their accomplishments. In this case it's enlightening because Meier was such an appealing performer but wasn't that strong athletically, whereas Volchkova was almost the exact opposite: splendid, springy jumps but not much ability to project a personality or the music. Both of them were just under the top level but occasionally made it into a spotlight moment. I'm glad to hear that Volchkova is coaching.
