A poll would not really handle this. Here is a list of some characteristics of figure skating. Put them in the order of importance of what you consider to be a champion.
edges, flow, footwork, costumes, ballet line, flexibility, spins, combo spins, jumps, combo jumps, musicality, other characteristics I've left out.
<span style="text-decoration:underline">Order of Importance for Me:</span>
Flow - this is basic. this was the beginning of skating. without it I couldn't care less about the quad.
Edges - basically that's defining flow. Must have.
Footwork - get the flow and edges together and work on excellent connecting steps. Keep it constantly in the routine.
Musicality - To make the above three produce harmony in the routine. Without it, sorry no skate.
Jumps - Absolutely daring and exciting element of figure skating. Must have flow into and out of.
Spins - absolutely unique and beautifuly element of figure skating. Must have flow into and an appropriate finish.
Combo Jumps - Only if they have full run out after each one. Otherwise, I do not give credit for trying.
Combo Spins - Only if they have enough rotations in each sector. Otherwise, it just doesn't work for me.
Ballet Line - Makes figure skating look good but I don't think it's absolutely necessary if one can show me another approach
Flexibility - As long as it looks pretty. I'm not a big on acrobatic feats. Suppleness will do.
What do you think? Order of importance and anything else!
