    I know Miki isn't everyones cup of tea but you have to admit she's an amazing athlete. All those 3lz-3lo attempts and they all look soo easy for her, even when they get downgraded, they still look impressive.

    Yeah, I know them, but I wanted to put combinations only from senior competitions. If I used her junior years as well video would be probably too long. But thank you anyway. And I don't know how to open last clip. You told she attempted quad there so I would like to add to my video with her quads, where must I click to open it? By the way, I'm going to do video with triple-triples of Michelle's, Shizuka's, Mao's, Yu-Na's and Sasha's as well.

    You must be registered on Nico Nico Douga to watch the videos (I managed to register because I could view the page in Spanish, don't know if that option is still available). I can download the video and upload it on MediaFire, if you want. :)

    It's amazing how consistent has been through the years...really her jumps have stayed through and through even when she didn't have much else. I believe her boyfriend is the one to blame for her unfulfilled potential (she could have dominated figure skating)

    Dominated figure skating!? Please, her overall talent is nowhere near Asada or Kim. If anything she has overachieved to have done what she has in the sport, including winning a Worlds.

    Ando was very strong in 2007. Don't diminish her win there.

    Watching this video remind of how strong a jumper she was 4-5 years ago. Not that she isn't strong now, but the 3-3s in this video seem effortless. I hope she includes the 3-3 at Worlds. It would be so exciting if she received full credit!

    She has far better technique than Mao and her jumping ability is on par with Kim (if not better), imho.
    She doesn't have their elegance, line, musical phrasing and understanding or oooomph....those are the areas she should have depeloped if she wasn't with Morozov. I even think she has regressed as a skater, she was far more interesting when she was younger

    Why bother posting if you have anything nice to say when people haven't said anything nasty about any other skaters? Sounds like you are threaten by Miki:lol: You must be jealous that she is with Morozov or something. That's pretty sad.

    ITA! Judgejudy, you are the only few people think Miki is just an ok jumper. She is an excellent jumper.

    I didnt say anything nasty. I said she didnt have the overall talent of Asada or Kim which 99% of the skating following population would agree with.


    You must be jealous of people who arent stupid, but that is your problem.

    PS- I did not say she was an ok jumper, I said she wasnt the best jumper over someone like Yu Na Kim, and she isnt as strong a jumper as she was 4 years ago when she was regularly landing triple lutz-triple loop combos.

    I respect your opinion but I dont think the things you refer to she lacked because of Morozov. She in fact improved all those areas after she went to Morozov. Remember she won her World title and became a much bigger contender AFTER she went to Morozov. She just isnt as naturally talented in those areas as she is in jumping and a few other things (eg- basic skating, pretty good footwork).

    No you said Yuna and Mao were much better jumper than Miki, which I don't agree with.

    Actually Miki was a better overall skater when she was with Sato, IMO.

    :lol: good one, I hadn't realized
    Miki has nice basics, she's not in Arakawa or Chan, etc. level but her edging is good. Her posture and stroking would have needed to be addressed and I agree with the previous poster that she was a better skater with Sato.
    Morozov gave her the best programs ever in 2007, but she hasn't skated to programs on par with those since. I dunno who's to blame. She clearly is comfortable with him, but he's been a poor coach imo to someone of the potential caliber of Miki.
    She's been able to have a very long career and remain a contender these past seasons, despite of him. It's because of her natural ability that she's remained one of the best in the world
    Well, imo she's the most talented jumper since Midori and Tonya and this video is just great to watch

    Yes I consider someone who can do 3 triple axels per competition and triple-triples a better jumper than Miki, and I consider someone like Kim who can earn over 55 points on jumps in her best free skate performances a better jumper than Miki. Wow isnt that so illogical, especialy when Miki isnt even doing triple-triples anymore, and even at her peak when jumping better than today in 2007 found herself beaten in GOE points in jumps by Kim and even Mao. That really equates to being just an ok jumper as you claim I said doesnt it. :rolleyes:

    Anyway nice to see you now admitting you lied about my previous comment, either that or exposing your own lack of intelligence/reading comprehension skills. Goodday. :lol:

    She would be still reguralry landing 3-3 at nowadays if the scoring system wasn't discouraging her to do so. It's been like:
    Miki: "I can do HUGE triple lutz followed by triple loop. I want to that in competition and get big points."
    Judges: "Don't do it, don't do it, don't do it! Do way less difficult 3Lz+3L and you'll get more points for that. We don't like when you try more difficult and challenging things. Forget about you 3+3, not to mention a quad."
    Miki: "After few seasons of trying to persuade you I give up. I will do easy things like 3Lz+2L."

    True. Miki is one of the strangest judged skaters there is. Inexplicably screwed over with questionable URs for years yet inflated ridiculously in PCS on the other side often. I would rather see her do the 3-3s though as that is one of the things that set her apart and had it make more sense when she was winning or doing well.

    you are a sad person. I guess you feel insecure about your own intelligence so by insulting someone elses you feel better about yourself.

    Mao has never done 3 triple axels and triple-triples in the same competition though. She successfully had 3 triple axels ratified in one competition ONCE, last year at the Olympics, where she attempted no triple-triples and made other mistakes on simpler jumps in the FS. Mao in her jumping prime was attempting one 3a and two or three 3-3s per competition, and I don't know how many times she actually landed all that and got credit for all the rotations but I want to say it was only once or twice, and also, as far as I can tell it seems she hasn't been capable of doing that since 2008, when she was 17.

    Miki doesnt do the triple axel or any triple-triples any longer though. I dont even remember the last time she did a ratified triple-triple. Thus Mao of last year doing all those triple axels is better IMO. And at Mikis jumping peak in 2007 Mao was doing all the jumps Miki was, getting better GOE on most of them (I can link the protocals if you dont believe me) and doing a triple axel. So on the whole I feel more than just in considering Mao at her best a better jumper than Miki. Of course Mao is still a long way from her best at this point. And Kim is a better jumper than both IMO.

    That doesnt mean I am denying Miki is a very strong jumper. I just dont consider her the best, especialy not when all the best skaters are active and skating well. And I dont have to consider her the best, especialy when she hasnt been doing the triple-triples regularly for years, just because a few of her apparently sad and obsessive fans (especialy that ks777 looney) whine I dont. :lol:
