Nancy Kerrigan. Textbook outside edge triple lutz.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5v6qwtKRKeM Note the jump and commentary starting at 4:56 and especially the DEEP outside edge going into the jump. Slo-mo replay at 7:53.

Can't decide between Volchkova and Harding. Also love Butyrskaya's and Ito's.

From the videos you posted, Harding is the best. The speed and flow coming out is amazing, not to mention the height and spring
For me Arakawa had the softest landing of them all and looking back, you wonder what unfulfilled talent was Volchkova
Kim's are great too and spectacular with the speed she skates too and Chen's were super elegant

Kerrigan's lutz - when it worked - was always a thing of beauty, as were all her jumps actually (again when they were landed ;)) The one you linked to is just incredible. Tough but it's hard to deny the sheer brilliance of Harding's lutz. They still make me go :eek:

Volchkova's jumps were beautiful on takeoffs and in the air and high but carried no flow at all out, even less than Slutskaya who atleast sometimes carried decent flow out. She looked like someone standing on her toe on the balance beam trying to keep her balance in one spot. I couldnt pick her for any jumps based on that. My choice would be Harding, but it would actually be between Harding and Kerrigan for me.

Harding's lutz, as posted, was amazing,
I had forgotten how great Kerrigan's was.

Tanja Szewczenko had always enormous height, but problems with the landing

I linked to that performance on the first page. What's most impressive to me is that Tanja obtained 3lutz later in her career, after already medaling on the world stage without it.

Here are some more great lutzes by Harding, the current leader:

I was fortunate enough to see the 1994 US Nationals in person and a week later, the Canadian Championships live as well.

Two ladies in Edmonton really stood out, Josee Chouinard and Tanya Bingert (whom I'd heard great things about but never seen). Bingert in particular, got amazing height and distance on her triple lutz.

Annie Bellemare and Angie Derochie, both competed in the late 90s - early 2000s, from memory had killer triple lutz jumps as well.

Also Gede should be added to the list. Her 3lz is a MONSTER.

I can't find a video but there was a Disney on Ice special with Oksana Baiul as a guest (I believe Kwan was the big star) and she did one of the most amazing 3lutzs I have ever seen. Granted, this was filmed so she could have tried it 1,000 times but my goodness, it was beautiful.
