Judging the the clip, I can already see Uncle Dick complaining about the superflous arms movements :lol:.
As much as Dick drives me to drink, I'd have to agree. :P

Great 3A! Hope she will not 'outgrow' it as she matures.

The arm movements I could do with less.........

Geez.. What is with all these 3A comparisons? Since 3As for women are pretty rare to come by, can't we just admire each one for their own merits? :)

Last time I checked this was a competitive sport and these girls were planning for their elements to be judged, critiqued, and compared to their competitor's elements. :)

If Tuktamysheva and Mao were ever in the same competition and did triple axels I am sure some judges would do GOE marks with the other in mind. I also am in agreement with the idea that you wouldn't want to crtiticize someone's element so much that they don't do it. Though you have Caroline Zhang who gets tons of criticism but skates onward.

Oh the comparisons! After Liza vs Mao trixel, let's see Lisa vs Kim 3 lutz+3 t combo.

It seems to me the younger Mao was the easy looking her trixels were.
Lisa has a long way to go yet. I wish her consistency in competitions.

Hoping she loses the Slutskaya arms, but I love how she does the 3A with such ease as if it was any other triple jump.

Slutskaya had the most expressive arm movements among the ladies during her era, in my opinion.

I think Eliza is always skating to "Culture" by Chris Spheers, which Slutskaya has skated to as well. Eliza does a Egyptian hand movement in certain parts which looks like it's been lifted from Slutskaya's "Culture" program. I will be watching for her.

Mao at about 5'5" is pretty tall for a female skater, and in Japan, she's well above the average female height, when she was younger though, she used to be really little. Liza may not grow to be as tall as Mao and if she doesn't it may mean her 3a will stay so good.

Lisa has long way to going, I also hope she will find her niche, and get the consistency to become one of the top. Lots of potential. :cool:

I thought Mao was 5'3"... Isn't she?

She's around the 5'4" (163 cm). So, it's not like she's very tall, really.

Japan Skates lists her as 164 cm, which is almost 5'5". She was listed as 5'3" a few years ago but has clearly grown since.

Caroline and Akiko are listed as 5'3"-5'4" so going with that Mao looks more or less 5'5"-5'6". She skated with Kozuka at DOI just last week, they look very close to the same height, he's 5'7". Mao has grown almost a foot since age 12 when she first started doing 3a.

Holy crap she's good. I can't wait to see how she develops. She will be on the JGP this year, right?
