    I go with Katarina Witt. Her competitive attitude, expression, commanding figure, capacity to inspire the fans, charisma, skating like a woman and not like just a teen girl ... Being provocative and a great ambassador of the sport throughout the world. All that plus an awesome collection of medals, including two olympic golds, it's great.

    If we only look to the technical aspects of the sport maybe we would have to name somebody else as the greatest female skater ever. But when you look at the whole package, Witt wins. I have some friends that know very little about skating but they all remember Witt. Kwan and Ito are probably the only ones that come close to her.
