When I look at Christina Gao the skater she reminds me most of is Yu Na Kim. Yeah I know she is probably not quite as good as Kim but they are essentialy the same skater in many ways. Both have very easy and fluid jumps, nice but not great spins, strong basic skating skills, and quiet and subtle presentation. Gao I find has nicer positions, although Kim has bigger jumps. Gao's triple flip-triple toe was the best in the World when she was doing it though, and even better than Kim's who had the 2nd best one in the World. Considering Kim isnt good in triple loop or triple salchow one could argue the only jumps Kim did better than Gao were the triple lutz and maybe the double axel, and I guess the double axel-triple toe combo which Kim no longer does just like Gao no loner does the triple flip-triple toe. So if Kim is able to dominate and win all these World and Olympic Golds why cant Gao do better than 5th in the U.S all these years, even when she skates well, and even back when she had the triple flip-triple toe. It seems she is being very undermarked.
