This is not for favorite skater of all time, it's just for skaters who are not retired yet. I did not put everyone on. I just put the top skaters, and made sure to include ones I've heard people on here say good things about. I did add Sasha because she hasn't said yet whether she plans to compete again or not, and she is technically a valid choice. She hasn't announced that she is retiring again, and she is officially on the US team this season on team B. Plus I know a lot of people here do like her.

My next favorite after Mao is Mirai. I think she's great; she's the complete package and complete joy on the ice. Very Happy

After that would be Joannie. And speaking of Caroline Zhang, I was just watching some of her programs and thinking she's really beautiful to watch..if she can just rework her technique she'd be so great.

I had to go with Marai too. I almost went with Sasha, since she used to be my favorite before Mao, and then my second favorite for a while after Mao came along. But really any more, Marai has become as good - if not better - than Sasha, and is still getting better, and better. She's only 16. She not quite as flexible as Sasha, but pretty close. It's definitely not a deal breaker.

After that. I'm not really sure who is next on my list. Alissa would be a shooin if she were more consistent. I once heard someone say "she would probably be everyone's favorite skater if...". Caroline would also be pretty high up on the list if she fixed some of her techniques. She is still young, and has a long ways to go. I'm sure she'll be improving.

Hm, I'm wondering who the people's favorites are who are voting for "other". I thought I covered pretty much everyone who people would be voting for. There are some good up, and coming juniors, but I didn't think they would be too high on anyone's favorite list yet, so I didn't include them.... scratch

Oh ok. I only included skaters that are not retired yet, because the list would have been very very long otherwise. Like I said in my first comment, I was iffy on including Sasha because no one knows if she'll ever compete again, but she has not officially announced her retirement (again), so I included her. Sorry if that made it confusing. Maybe I should have said "non retired skater" in the title of the poll instead of in a comment...

This is a hard poll because I can't "rank my skaters" per-say

After Mao-chan everyone kinf of gets jumbled up between Mirai, Yuna and Kanako.
I'd probably have to say that if Mao wasn't skating then i'd be rooting hardest for Yuna, then Kanako and then Mirai maybe? Question

I don't know, for now i'll go with Yuna and call it a day

I choose other. Razz

My current favorite skater other than Mao is Zijun Li. She isn't as much of a threat (yet) but I just love her style since it reminds me of Mao. cat

Mirai Nagasu. Her 2010 Nats SP made an impression on me. (She also skated to Joe Hisaishi, teeheehee.) And with her age, I know there's more of her basics she can improve! Smile

Non Retire: I think I'm a weird fan I love Laura Lepisto style, but I don't know why I never really root for her. However, for Miki who I don't like her style as much as Lepisto, I have a soft spot for her and want her to do well. cat I like Akiko too.

But for this season my favorite program from lady is those of Risa Shoji, Her LP really capture me. Therefore I vote other.

Definitely Risa Shoji. She's only 15, but she's like a mini-version of Mao. And, she's Japanese.

She's so ah-dorable!!

Mirai is the reason why I even got into figure skating in the first place. I love her on the ice. I discovered Mao a couple months later and got completely hooked onto her style, but I could watch Mirai when she is on for hours.

Me 2!!! I had to do a Winter Olympics project for school, and we had to pick an American skater to do a report on, so I picked Mirai. Then, a little while later, I discovered Mao. I even started figure skating myself...all because of Mao and Mirai.

I voted Mirai, but it was a little difficult because while Mao is my favorite I've got many "next favorites". However I love Mirai, she's very energetic and very graceful at the same time, she's so charming, her spins are freaking gorgeous of course and she's got awesome speed. She has both the flexibility and the gracefulness that allows her to have such beautiful positions. Love Hearts

Among the list I voted for Miki Ando, next to Mao, she comes next on my top list! Smile

I also love Akiko; Carolina and Laura (hope her injury is healed now) ... I love you

Wow, it looks like Mirai is pretty popular here flower

She's probably my second favorite as well, although I find myself getting just as frustrated with her as I used to get with Sasha back when she was my favorite...

and I'm eager to see what Kanako and Haruka (as well as Christina Gao) come up with in the future...I think that they have potential to be among my favorites but they're not quite there yet...oh and I forgot about the russian baby divas!

but for now I'm sticking with Mirai...
