Top Ten Greatest Female Figure Skaters of All-Time

We've crunched the numbers. We've pored over the record books. We've reviewed history. And now we reveal our top 10 ladies skaters of all-time.

The Top Ten

1 Adelina Sotnikova

Garbage. Spam and/or bot voting is the only reason she's number one. She doesn't even deserve to be in the top 50!

Her 2014 Olympic gold medal performance was brilliant and was unfairly critiqued after the fact. Nonetheless, after an ACL injury, she has proven to be a one hit wonder. Not even in the top 100.

She brought me into figure skating and changed my view as a sport fan. She showed me that there is no boarders when it comes to rooting for someone in the sport no matter where he comes from, because how can you not appreciate something so obviously talented and great when you watch her skating. She has a special place in my heart forever.

With her Being the One and Only to light the cauldron at the 2018 games is what made me cry during the opening ceremony at PyeongChang. So beautiful

LOVE HER! Even though I'm not Korean but she skates like an Angel!

Yes..she has the talent.gifted.amazing.her agility,grace and speed just wows me.
