    I think in the really early days of the short program (perhaps up to 1976), a single axel variation was actually a required element. Perhaps some of the men chose to do tuck axel as their variation?

    Wow!! :eek: Karen was definitely Queen of the flying sit!! Incredible height and tuck position.

    Midori's wasn't too bad, either....;)

    Either woman could probably have done a tuck axel easily......Wonder why they didn't bother? (Both skated before ISJ, so the points were not an issue.)

    I was searching through a lot of old videos on youtube and found some very interesting (and very cool moves) :D ...But no women with tuck axels....:(

    I could just _swear_ that Doroth Hamill did tuck axels, but I'm too lazy/busy to look up the videos (and I might be wrong, which is a very unsettling thought).

    She had a beautiful delayed axel. Not sure about a tuck, though.
