I go with Harding for ice coverage.

I always knew Kerrigan was a good jumper, but that Lutz in her '92 Albertville SP was absolutely textbook perfect.

I would go with Harding, though. The Lutz is at 1:18 and is more like a 747 taking off and landing than a mere figure skating jump. What amazing power and control.

Interesting how both Harding and Kerrigan had such amazing Lutzes, and the generation after them were mostly flutzers and flatzers.

I think the reason why Yuna won this poll is because some of the people on this forum became fans of the sport circa 2008-2009 when Yuna was getting very famous, and hence, a lot of them simply haven't watched skaters from previous Olympic cycles. There is absolutely no way Yuna's lutz beats Tonya's. If anyone can give me even one or two reasons why Yuna's lutz is better than Tonya's, I'm wide open to listen to these reasons.

There is no comparison size wise, although Yuna's were pretty big too. But one thing Yuna did better on that jump was the ability to display masterful control on the jump with more complex set up (2007 worlds short program) and landing (the one I mentioned up-thread).

^ I mean Yuna's lutz is definitely great and she definitely has great control, but I can't really agree about the landing. Yuna does have soft landings, but her lutzes don't have as much flow coming out of them as Tonya's do.

One thing could be since she does so many triple lutz-triple toes. Tonya could have I am sure but never did a triple lutz-triple combo of any kind I am aware of. I still voted for Tonya mind you.

I would go with Nicole Bobek, LOL! Honestly I would say Volchkova or Gracie

Anyone mention Krisztina Czako's lutz yet?

Although not consistent, it was a gorgeous jump when she was on. Great delay. Dick Button agrees.

^^ I love that SP of hers. Love the way she used the music and it just holds your interest from start to finish. And the lutz is very good.
