2006 Worlds: Kimmie Meissner, Fumie Suguri, and Sasha Cohen

Updated on March 10, 2015

Kimmie Meissner in 2006

Kimmie Meissner is my favorite skater and I always have a soft spot for her.

What a lovely girl she is! I named her the last princess for U.S. ladies figure skating. Sadly Kimmie didn't make it.

Although this shows that her skating here is a bit premature. overall Kimmie's skating is debris-free skating with much greater potential than anybody else.

Kimmie has such a nice body line and solid skating basics.

Her jumps are 0, +1,0, -1,-1,0 and -1. Her PCS is 7.5.

I didn't know that Kimmie with Oksana had a little fun together. Enjoy the clip.

Fumie Suguri in 2006

What a finish!?

Although Suguri shows some handling of her program, I can't help feeling stunted from her skating. That may have to do with her physiological disadvantage like Kwan or Ito.

But as an elite skater, Suguri comes short in upper body control.

In this particular program Suguri's moves are much desired: her speed seems a bit compromised while her kicking habit on takeoff is still too notable.

Her jumps are -2,-3 and -1. Her PCS is 7.25.

Sasha Cohen in 2006

Sasha Cohen in 2006

In her short program, Cohen's jumps are -3,-2 and 0. Her PCS is 7.25.

Cohen's spiral and spin are notable though her speed is a bit compromised.

Yes, Cohen's skating is not secure as Peter mentions. Another issue in Cohen's skating may be rough edges found throughout her moves.

But overall music seems to suit her well.

Now Cohen's free program disastrous, not because she has fallen but because she has compromised. Due to her problem on landing jumps, she slows down significantly.

Her kicking habit also cannot be glossed over in this competition.

Her jumps are -3,-2,0,-3,-3,-3 and -3. Her PCS is 7.0

Who do you think is the winner of the 2006 Worlds?
