The lutz is the second most difficult triple jump and, in the case of most ladies, often the most difficult one we see in their programs. Who did it best? Explain why, and feel free to post examples other than the ones I've listed.

Midori Ito http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fDcctP-KVXo#t=0m30s

Tonya Harding www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5_7Iu82gi8#t=2m14s

Irina Slutskaya http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbK7zlfJAIE#t=1m0s

Viktoria Volchkova http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pbZsz7ENVU&feature=related#t=1m15s

Julia Sebestyen http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8fkrR0cBuaY&feature=fvwrel#t=1m40s

Honorable mentions: Denise Biellmann (first ever!), Shizuka Arakawa, Vanessa Gusmeroli, Nancy Kerrigan, Lu Chen, Anna Rechnio (though her edge goes a bit flat), Joannie Rochette, Carolina Kostner, Maria Butyrskaya

All of the ladies in the poll have BO edge, IMO, with the only possible exceptions being Slutskaya and Ito, who tend to roll inwards to some degree.

For me, it's a toss up between Volchkova, Sebestyen, and Harding. I went with Harding, who tends to have a bit more speed in and out.

I remember whenever Sebestyen was competing I would watch for her Lutz. It was huge! I used to enjoy Volchkova's and Arakawa's skating as well. Arakawa eventually rose to the top, but sadly Volchkova never did.

She deserves an honorable mention for sure! Not sure how I overlooked her, but I was always impressed how she managed to do such huge powerful jumps and make them work with soft delicate sections in the music.

I think VV's lutz was fabulous. I do think Joannie should have been on the list :)

Tough call, but I went with VV as well with Sebastyen a close 2nd. Midori always had great height and strength in her jumps, but her wrapped free leg always bothered me.

The name that immediately came to mind when I saw the title of this thread was Volchkova. Sebestyen had a beautiful lutz as well.

Tatiana Malinina should have been included in the list, in my opinion.

Also, the most gorgeous 3Lutz I may have ever seen belongs to Maria Butyrskaya, in this performance:

That's the problem with only having 12 options ;)

And Tatiana did have a great lutz as well:

Malinina was my first thought also.

(ETA: Whoops, now I see this exact link was just posted).

The others were really great too, thanks for posting. :)

Easy. Harding.

However, Liz Manley deserves to be in the poll.

I thought about Manley, but I've hardly never seen her land a lutz with a strong edge on the landing.

ETA: Oops:)

Malinina, Butyrskaya, Volchkova and Kerrigan all impressed me.
