Eh.. it wasn't until the next season and I saw her Otonal free skate at an early Grand Prix that I really started to follow Maria closely.
By the way, Joannie Rochette is also on the list and she's sitting in 23rd place.
Adam Lambert in 4th and Kanye West in 29th? The latter might have some catchy music, but the last time I checked the only influential thing he was doing was teaching people how NOT to act. Maybe that's what he is getting the votes for.
Here's the link to the list.

I do skate, but didn't start until I was too old to ever go anywhere with it unless I skated 6 hours a day-- which didn't happen. I was doing double toes, double Sals, and the occasional double flip after about 3 or 4 months of being seriously coached. I also think I made a few good attempts on the double Axel-- rotating it all the way, but always falling. I am not coached right now, and go skating sometimes if I have an off-day, and I can still do the other doubles. I really want to go back and work on my basics though, because I'd actually love to start coaching young kids one day, and then maybe work my way up :-)
What about some coverage of the World Synchro Championships this weekend? Your blog brings in a lot of traffic to the skating world and synchronized skating deserves to be featured too!!!
I don't really follow Synchro Skating, but I suppose I could watch some videos and post them here if they end up on YouTube. One of the US' consistently strong teams (but isn't at Worlds this year) is from Miami of Ohio, which is pretty close to here. I suppose I should give it some attention :-P
