The Women's List

as promised ...

Same thing as the mens' list - it's in Spanish and it's got points if you want to rank them yourself.  Or you can just scroll down and ponder.

I can think of one missing skater .... nine-time US champion and multiple World and Olympic medalist, Maribel Vinson Owen.  She was tragically one of the skaters that died in the 1961 plane crash on the way to the World Championships in Prague, Czechoslovakia along with her two daughters.

I'm grateful to see a home-town (of St. Paul, Minnesota) favorite, Vivi-Anne Hultén make the list.  Considering she was a rival to Sonja Henie among controversial judging, I'd like to see her rank higher, but that discussion is for another day.

Can you think of anyone missing?
