I just got my July/August issue today. Heavy Worlds coverage.
Then there was "The List." Overall, I'd actually agree with most of them, although maybe not the Caribbean Cuirse guy
Michelle Kwan, unsurprisingly, was "THE" most influetntial person, the it went Japanese lady Miki Ando the quad quees , then Sandra Bezic, the this Willy Bietak guy, who creates the shows for Caribbean Crusie line, the costume designer Jef Billings, followed by Shae-Lynn Bourne and Victor Kraatz:D :D :D , Philippe Candeloro, (dum de dum dum) Cinquanta:| , Robin Cousins, Steve Disson, Andrea Dohany, who is the Syncro World Champs coach, followed by Kenneth Feld, Rory Flack Burghart who created the "all black skating show", Dorthy Hamill, Scott Hamilton, Lea Ann Miller, Nikolai Morozov, Moira North, Ice Theatre of New York's director, Ron Pfenning, Jay Ogden president of IMG, Lucinda Ruh, Shen and Zhao, Elvis Stojiko, Kat Witt, and finally, Kristi Yamaguchi. Whew.
My personal favorite (Besides Bourne and Kraatz) was Nikolai Morozov, who I thought did really great programs this year in addition to Bourne and Kraatz's victory. I'm glad he's finally getting some real recognition.
