    What were the best THREE 3-3 combinations by a lady skater?

    (Pick three skaters from the list; some are/were doing more than one type of 3-3 combination- you may use either one or both to decide)

    I voted for Kristi Yamaguchi, the first with a 3Lutz/3Toe at the Olympics, such a good memory.
    Tara Lipinski because her 3Loop/3Loop has always impressed me.
    And Carolina Kostner because of her clean and big 3/3 and her 10 years of 3/3 at Euros and Worlds !

    I think she has one of the best 3-3 combinations. Speed, power, distance,.. and it's so beautiful!
    So, I voted for other! ;)

    How come Yuna's money-makers, 3f3t and 3lz3t, didn't make the list? Seriously?

    I was wondering the same? I'm sure she could have done it with ease, but I don't recall seeing it

    Again, where is YuNa?
    This is sort of like a spiral poll without MK, and Beillman poll without Denise, a spin poll without Lucinda Ruh :lol:

    Hers is one of the few difficult 3-3s that would get consistently get ratified with big GOE under the strictest judges' eyes, and she did them all the time, including the SPs. You'd see a competition where lady after lady would be trying these small, underottated, squeeked out , fallen out, two-footed or splatted 3-3s. Then it came YuNa's turn and she'd land the humongous combo with height, distance , speed, she truly dominated the 3-3.

    Yuna is the queen of triples-triples...I doubt we will see ladies with such combos for a long time (perhaps Gold, but hers don't have the fabulous speed going in)

    I immediately thought of Yu-Na Kim when I saw the title, very surprised she's not one of the options. I'm not even a fan but her 3-3 combos are fantastic. Kostner has a fantastic 3flip/3toe when she does it, so from the options listed, my vote would be for her.

    Mao also did 3R 3T

    But my vote goes to Yuna and Tuktamisheva (who I think should have been included)

    When she was younger, Mao was doing 3F3R3T, 3Z3R, 3R3R (in exhibitions) and 3F3T. I have never seen her go for a 3R3T, though.

    And how can you have this poll without Yuna?

    Midori and Michelle for their 3T/3T, which were beautiful from entry to exit ... Plus Irina for the 3Lz/3Lp, which is the best quality of that very difficult combination. If I could have voted for 4, then I would have added Miki since her jumps were so big.

    I prefer big jumps, but Harding could have been better in 3/3s. I actually would give it to Kostner over Harding in 3/3s, although I think Harding was a better jumper, in general.

    Yamaguchi, Lipinsky, and Asada's jumps seemed smallish, relatively.

    ... then Hughes and Bonaly.

    Come on, Vash01 did that on purpose.

    If Yuna is on the list, it's INSIPIDNESS. :lol:

    I selected Midori, Tara and Tonya.

    Midori, Carolina, Tonya.

    No Kristi-she did little nimminy pimminy tiny rotator jumps.

    But Yu Na should be in here!

    I think Miki's 3z/3r is without a doubt the best that element has been done by any lady. Irina's lutz edge always went neutral and she only landed it "cleanly" three times that I'm aware of: 99/00 GPF, 01 Russian Nationals, 05 Worlds. Of the three, 2005 Worlds was the closest, and even though the panel gave her credit, it looks like more of a 1/4 turn cheat to me. Miki often cheated the loop as well, but when she hit it at her best, she could fully rotate it.

    I consider Harding to be pretty much the best jumper ever, but am surprised anyone would vote for her in this poll. She only landed a 3/3 twice (91 Nationals-3t3t- and 88 Nationals-3r3t) and both had weak landings based on reports I've heard. ETA: There is no video footage of her long program at 88 Nationals but does anyone know if she beat Kadavy in the LP? I can't imagine her skating worse than Kadavy who was a total train wreck that year.

    The 2nd 3T on Tonya's 3T/3T was clean but muscled in a way I think only Stojko could have pulled off. I admire it but do not find in pleasing in the context of a program ... If the cuts to Wild Thing count as part of a program.

    The poll options are silly. The three individual best 3-3s of all time are Midori's 3A-3T, Yuna's 3LZ-3T, and either Liza T.'s 3LZ-3T or Miki's 3LZ-3LO.

    Oh, OK. ;) In that case, I go for Midori, Caro and Tara.
    Still Yuna is the best for me.

    Midori never landed a 3A3t in a competition.

    Miki's 3L-3R (same as 3LZ-3LO in your post) IS on the list. Read it again. You sound silly.

    Yu na was the only one I really missed.

    I was not going to include skaters like Liza (though I love her) who have not yet competed at senior worlds. There are just 12 options.

    I agree that Yuna should be on the poll. I do love Tara's triple loop, triple loop, such fast rotation. And Irina's Triple Lutz, Triple Loop is pretty impressive.
