I have a loooot of skaters that I enjoy watching. Very Happy

Ladies:

Mao Asada - a genius and a genius of hard work. I love her balletic style. ligh jumps, geat flecibility and cute personality. I'm impressed how hard she works on improving her skating, every time I see her she manages to surprise me with something new.

Other favourites: Shizuka Arakawa (especially as a pro), Yukari Nakano, Nana Takeda, Yuki Nishino, Sayaka Matsubara, Mirai Nagasu, Fumie Suguri, and many others. Smile

Men:

Nobunari Oda - he has every quality I've always looked for in a male figure skater and enormous charisma. Love Another genius of hard work; looking at his jumps and spins now it's difficult to believe that he had great troubles with them right until he won Junior Worlds. Total rockstar! Rockstar

Other favourites: Jeffrey Buttle, Takahiko Kozuka, Kensuke Nakaniwa, Daisuke Takahashi and many others. Smile


Dance:

Virtue/Moir: I didn't have a favourite dance team since Anissina/Peizerat retired, and I wasn't fond of the direction the discipline was going in - too circus-y for my taste. V/M brought back dance to ice dance, and I love them for that. They have amazing presence on ice and just /really/ dance. I'm always mesmerized while watching them.

Other favourites: Weaver/Poje; they have great potential. Like V/M, they really dance.

Pairs:

I don't have a clear favourite like in other disciplines, but I have a feeling that Pang/Tong might become my favourite pair. I loved the preview of their Romeo/Juliet LP. Their performance at 04 Worlds was great; after that I felt as if they had troubles with accustoming to CoP. Now they seem to finally be getting comfortable with it and showing their full potential again.

Others: Shen/Zhao (have they retired..?)


Those were just eligible (or freshly retired) skaters... From those who retired some time ago I love to watch: Midori Ito, Scott Hamilton (as a pro), Kurt Browning, Torvill/Dean, Anissina/Peizerat, Alexei Yagudin, the Siudeks and many more. Dance

I also have a lot of favourites. cheers

My "favourite favourites", though, are Mao Asada, Nobunari Oda and Virtue/Moir. Wub

I also really enjoy watching novices and juniors. Even if they do not have the refinement and experience of senior skaters, their enthusiasm and "freshness" makes up for it. Thumbs up!

Ladies
KOR: Yu-Na Kim (I'm sorry, she's my #1 out of national bias! I'm ethnically Korean and was born in Canada...too many ties to try to hide my favouritism silent)
JPN: Mao Asada (in certain ways undeniably better than Yu-Na; a rare talent and sweet girl)

Other mentionables:
USA: Caroline Zhang (a beautiful, precise style and a joy to watch)
USA: Kristi Yamaguchi (one of my earliest skating idols, I think she drew me into watching the sport in the first place
FRA: Surya Bonaly (amazing story, full of pluck, and I believe it was prejudice which robbed her of at least one World title...so, courageous as well)
USA: Sasha Cohen (gorgeous spirals and spins, lots of flair)
JPN: Midori Ito (to this day, still the queen of jumps. Wonder how she would have dominated if she competed under the new scoring system.)

Men
RUS: Alexei Yagudin
RUS: Evgeni Plushenko

These two Russians are my absolute favourite men.

Other mentionables:
CAN: Patrick Chan
CAN: Jeff Buttle
CAN: Emanuel Sandhu
CAN: Brian Orser (not the least for being Yu-Na's coach Razz)
USA: Johnny Weir

I'd rather wonder how she (as well as other big stars of the past) would have looked under the current level of pressure, all top skaters compete under these days. Especially the level of pressure Mao skates under. Or Kim with Miki. It's highly possible, some of those antique skating heroes wouldn't be anywhere close to the places they were occupying during their 'romantic' days. -P
