I think she was from Japan. It was a few years back, she was doing a camel spin (or illusions), went of balance and fell out of the spin. I think she was wearing a white dress. Anyone remember that and know her name?:D

Thanks.:shuffle:

I remember Yukari Nakano once fell on her flying camel at 4CCs around 10 years ago. She worked so hard that it became her signature spin.

I think you are referring to Shizuka Arakawa at 2003 Worlds SP to Bondage Swan Lake. She nailed the entire performance up until her last combo spin where she wiped out on her camel. Has to be the one you're thinking about. It was the first thing that came to my mind.

ETA: Technically she wasn't in her camel spin yet, and if by a few years ago you mean ten years ago, then that's your skater. Time flies.

I totally remember this! It was Nakano. But I think it was at a GP, not 4CCs. I think it was TEB.

I remember that. Dick or Peggy said something like "now she's going into her flying camel spin" and Terry Gannon was like "yeah it's literally flying." :lol:
