Kumiko Koiwai

She was coached by Machiko Yamada. I remember people were calling her the next Midori Ito.. I believe she was practicing 3 axel and landing them in practice.
Surprisingly, this girl had good basic skating skills and jumping techniques. Most of Yamada's students have odd techniques and lacking in good skating skills.
Thanks for posting. She has beautiful skating skills - lovely knee bend and ankle flexion which help her get the speed. Reminded me of Yuka.
