There's something about leg - wraps that gets me.

Whether it's a skater's ability to muscle a jump, or that their leg is parallel to the ice during rotation, it's kind of funky.

Anyway, here are a few of my favourites:

Claudia - Kristofics Binder (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1atF99Om0o)

and her daughter, who also skates:

My favorite leg wrapper is definitely Yukari Nakano. I can tolerate it on her. The rest is so good.

Nakano. Can't believe she can actually rotate those triples with such a huge wrap.

Ah, I forgot about Yukari. Funny that she doesn't wrap on the triple axel, though.

Ito wrapped as well, IIRC.

ITO! Please. She was the only one to have big and rotated jumps despite the wrap. :respec:

(of course her wrap wasn't too bad, definitely better than Nakano's)

Midori Ito. Nakano comes in 2nd for me.

I'l have to upload Twana Rose's free skate from the 1992 Canadian Nationals. On top of a very pronounced leg - wrap, she must have the scariest double axel technique ever.

Absolutely Midori Ito. Loved her incredible jumps, and the wrap didn't bother me at all.

My favourite Midori performance - 89 Worlds - just such joy and exuberance, she launches into those jumps with total abandon. Especially love the speed and flow of the triple toe-triple toe at 3:35!

Definately Yukari!

She also doesn't wrap her leg on the Salchow and Toeloop.

But she toe-axelled. Which is another kind of bad technique. :lol:

Yukari hands down has the best leg wrap. :lol:

Silvia Fontana had quite a big wrap, too.

This thread is about leg wraps, not toe-axels.

:lol:

But you're right.
