Is there? I must hang out in the right spaces, I thought he was the only one everyone could agree onAnd yet there are quite a number of critics and skating fans who argue, not just that he is not the greatest (which is an opinion anyone is entitled to even if I disagree) but he doesn't honestly merit being called one of the very greatest of all time, that pretty much every one of his major rivals has had a better claim.
I think this is a harmless discussion where everyone is allowed to disagree. No one is suggesting the ISU should actually give a GOAT award to someone, lord knows the sport doesn't need that kind of violence.I'm not - as I said (and you austerely overlooked?) I was making a point about the whole OP's whole question, which was could one of the Russian ladies become the accepted best ever and what would it take. And my point was, it's hard enough to get critics/fans/anyone at all to agree on who merits the label 'one of the greatest', let alone The One And Only Lonely at the Top.
