    Who all is planning triple triple combos (or 2A + 3T) at nationals (SP and/or FS)?

    How do you think they will fare?

    Is it a good or bad decision to plan them, in your opinion.

    Off the top of my head....

    Czisny
    Wagner
    Keiser
    Jiang
    Wang
    Zawadzki
    Gao

    Possibly Flatt, Zhang, and/or Nagasu may include them too?


    Also Interesting to note that I believe Gold, Long, Kulgeyko, Cain, and Edmunds will try them at the Junior level.


    I may be wrong though - feel free to correct me. I'm just curious how you all think they will do based on their decision to do (or not to do) the triple-triple combination.

    For reference, chipso1 posted a summary of the past 2 seasons' 3-3 attempts (focusing on the Senior ladies) in the US Ladies thread #2 last month: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?p=3415287&highlight=chipso1#post3415287

    P.S. This topic is also being discussed in US Ladies thread #3 here in the Trash Can (both Czisny and Nagasu said in their respective pre-Nationals media teleconferences this week that their focus is not on 3-3 combos at Nationals).

    Alissa isn't according to the last article. Neither is Mirai.

    I think we'll see more 3/3 attempts in the junior ladies at US Nationals then the senior ladies. ;)

    Not true. They said the focus was off the triple triple, not that they weren't doing it. Also Alissa stated that she was doing the 2A + 3T combo

    Considering she just lost all her jumps two weeks ago I doubt she will be whipping off the triple triples. She needs more time to watch TV.

    And 2a + 3t is not a triple triple.

    I think the 2axel/3toe is about as likely from Alissa as a 3lutz/3toe. To be honest, the 3/3 seems more likely as her landings on the 3lutz (when at their best) are usually better than the landings on her 2axels. I will be surprised if she even goes for the 3toe on the end of the 2axel. Since she is leaving out the salchow then just do the toe as a solo jump.
