    One favourite from each country

    Another "favourite" survey.

    If you could only pick ONE eligible skater as your favourite from each country... who would it be? For me:

    USA - Michelle Kwan
    Canada - Emanuel Sandhu
    Japan - Fumie Suguri
    China - Shen & Zhao
    Russia - Evgeny Plushenko
    France - Stanick Jeannette
    Germany - Silvio Smalun
    Great Britain - Sinead & John Kerr
    Belgium - Kevin van der Perren
    Italy - Faiella & Scali
    Bulgaria - Denkova & Staviyski
    Ukraine - Grushina & Goncharov
    Hungary - Julia Sebestyen (although I also like Viktoria Pavuk)
    Finland - Susanna Poykio
    Switzerland - Stephane Lambiel

    It's hard to pick just one from some of the bigger countries...

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't Stanick gone pro?

    edit - I'm not sure, his website says he's waiting for the decision of his appeal against the french fed before he decides...but I don't know when it was updated last.

    agh...if he's eligible, change my vote for Dambier below to him!
