I actually thought Gracie's air position in her jumps improved somewhat once she moved to Frank. Things seemed much tighter in the air and he really polished her skating as well as her spins. The only thing that holds her back is her inconsistency and inability to really interpret the music, her facial expressions annoy me because they are so fake or in existent! Gracie is still having issues with her jump timing in competition. She seems like she is a bit too tight and not relaxed which causes those scratchy landings. It's almost like she's saying " do it... do it... DO IT...'. I often wonder if she's actually enjoying and soaking in her performance. Her face shows immense concentration but almost no personality or depiction of the music. That to me is Graci's weakness. She struggles to convey emotion through her face which leads me to believe that while she's committed to being true to the choreography, knowing how to act and perform are still not a strong point for her. looks ...more

It is disgusting to see her lose this first fall in the combo. The period after the fall of the second combo is expected and as usual, but she was not having a good practice in this season, so it is very concerned about. She, anywhere at all, do not feel the connection with her the program, and for her that seems to have been a very important part of her skating well, and it does not control the nerves there. I hate her choreography, the angular lines do not get as much as possible towards the Firebird, the more need lyrical work. She skates worse than last year

This Firebird is really a disaster after Anna's beautiful program from last season. Boring, boring, boring. Nothing special. Sorry!

Just a very stupid and a wooden dummy! Nothing interesting would not expect her

He's a moving portrait on ice. Everything about his skating... Especially his choreography, deep edges, spins, heartfelt expressions, are magical. He becomes the music.

He has the best edges and feel for movement of skaters out there right now. He is beyond his years on the ice, and also a major throwback to the classic days. Extreme musicality. Very classy guy on and off the ice and a sweetie to boot.

So beautiful skating and Classy

His performances always move me

The most underestimated skater. I love her a lot, she is just wonderful on and off the ice, always so decent, so true and so honest, in emotions, in interviews, in life, in skating.

The best ever! I will never forget the first time you and Maxim became World Champions back in 2007, the first time I truly felt proud to be Bulgarian!

One who overcomes the resistance of the system must be appreciated :) Moreover there haven't been any better couple than albena and max on the ice... ever!

She is the best! Love from Bulgaria!

Brian Orser has gone beyond skating as an athlete - he continues to lead the younger generation and now has 3 promising young skaters under his wing. He's probably the best coach of all time, if not the best skater.

my hero - so awesome!
see his Story of my life

Brian was great skater, and he is great coach now. He lead Yuna and Yuzuru to Gold medal!
Canadian Excellence.

52Sonja Heinie

She was so ahead of her time, excelled at many careers, just overwhelming to read about her life and athletic abilities... Oh, the hula in short ice skating costume! She was just... WOW

She was beyond her times. A legend!

None of these skaters come close to the fabulous most glamorous Ms. Henie. She'd tear these mousy girls apart. Sonja was woman enough to excel in everything she touched. She was engaged to Tyrone Power & dated many handsome men & box office actors. Sonja Henie was greatly admired by royalty, world dignitaries & even dictators. How's that for power & impact! Unlike these drab creatures Henie was a massive supernova of a star before superstar & global were even concepts. Sonja was also an innovative pioneer. But the woman was just too much fabulous for anyone to handle. Today's skaters are flops compared to her. Did I mention she was the richest too? Sonja Henie is the greatest for my money and its not even close.

53Anna Pogorilaya

She can be the best female figure skater in the figure)

I really like her an intelligent and powerful, The Royal -stylish skating. She looks better on ice than Carolina Kostner in a career! Anna have a a special chic on Ice,that will never get another skater from Japan or America! Wagner gave the home silver at the World Championships. Anna is much better than mediocre American!

Oh, Anna! Your new program is to be top of the craftsmanship and the perfect combination of jumps, lyrical dance and fascinating skating! You are the best in Russia.
