    Looks like another skater to watch for Sochi.

    Here is Eliza Tukatmysheva doing a triple axel in practice.

    Like I said in the Russian ladies thread (where this is already being discussed)...It's not the best angle, but it looks good to me. There is a nice flow out of the jump and she gets good height and distance. The choreography before and after suggests she'll be trying it in her programs.

    It looked nice and easy. Of course it's hard to predict if she'll still have the jump when her body matures.

    Judging the the clip, I can already see Uncle Dick complaining about the superflous arms movements :lol:.

    That looks better than Mao Asada's. Yeah her choreo and arm and shoulder movement is very reminiscent of Slutskaya.

    Oh mah good-ness. She flowed in and out of it, and the trajectory looked great (even if not super high). Color me impressed.

    Definately agree about it being better than Asada's. Very nice jump. One of the nicest 3axels I have seen from a female skater for a while.

    Wasn't there a video of a Russian jumping bean doing a triple axel OFF ICE (albeit cheated, but it had like 2.75 revolutions)? I saw it posted up on FSU before, but I can't find it anymore...

    Does anyone know where it is?

    It was Liza 3 years ago (she was about 10 then)

    Looks quite good, from our angle, however I do suspect it's a tiny bit underrotated (although with the new rule for underrotation and downgrades, it shouldn't hurt much).

    I still prefer Midori's triple axel! :lol:

    This kid is good, I hope her teammates step it up so they can give Liza a run for her money this season! I'm really hoping Adelina doesn't fall as much, Shelepen and Agafonova continue to always go for the 3-3s, and that Anna has some more fabulous voidy programs this season!

    Hoping she loses the Slutskaya arms, but I love how she does the 3A with such ease as if it was any other triple jump.

    Great 3A! Hope she will not 'outgrow' it as she matures.

    The arm movements I could do with less.........

    Geez.. What is with all these 3A comparisons? Since 3As for women are pretty rare to come by, can't we just admire each one for their own merits? :)

    Last time I checked this was a competitive sport and these girls were planning for their elements to be judged, critiqued, and compared to their competitor's elements. :)

    If Tuktamysheva and Mao were ever in the same competition and did triple axels I am sure some judges would do GOE marks with the other in mind. I also am in agreement with the idea that you wouldn't want to crtiticize someone's element so much that they don't do it. Though you have Caroline Zhang who gets tons of criticism but skates onward.

    Oh the comparisons! After Liza vs Mao trixel, let's see Lisa vs Kim 3 lutz+3 t combo.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ts6iGM8oCng&feature=related

    It seems to me the younger Mao was the easy looking her trixels were.
    Lisa has a long way to go yet. I wish her consistency in competitions.

    Slutskaya had the most expressive arm movements among the ladies during her era, in my opinion.

    I think Eliza is always skating to "Culture" by Chris Spheers, which Slutskaya has skated to as well. Eliza does a Egyptian hand movement in certain parts which looks like it's been lifted from Slutskaya's "Culture" program. I will be watching for her.

    Mao at about 5'5" is pretty tall for a female skater, and in Japan, she's well above the average female height, when she was younger though, she used to be really little. Liza may not grow to be as tall as Mao and if she doesn't it may mean her 3a will stay so good.

    Lisa has long way to going, I also hope she will find her niche, and get the consistency to become one of the top. Lots of potential. :cool:

    She's around the 5'4" (163 cm). So, it's not like she's very tall, really.

    Japan Skates lists her as 164 cm, which is almost 5'5". She was listed as 5'3" a few years ago but has clearly grown since.

    Caroline and Akiko are listed as 5'3"-5'4" so going with that Mao looks more or less 5'5"-5'6". She skated with Kozuka at DOI just last week, they look very close to the same height, he's 5'7". Mao has grown almost a foot since age 12 when she first started doing 3a.

    Holy crap she's good. I can't wait to see how she develops. She will be on the JGP this year, right?
