    Ina Bauer is one of my favorite moves. It's a really good connecting move that adds to the difficulty.

    Shizuka had (still has) a beautiful one and I imagine she'll win this poll easily. But I always thought Tonya had a very good one as well, so I voted for her.

    (Hey, shouldn't Ina Bauer be on this poll? :) )

    Shizuka is the best, of course, but I always thought that Mirai Nagasu has a lovely one.

    I searched for it on yt but I only found her picture, not the video of her move. May be someone else has a way to find it. Maofan would have found it quickly.

    I see that nobody voted for Katia, but she had a beautiful Ina Bauer at the end of Sergei's memorial (SOI 1996) where she held it for a long time, with her beautiful edges.

    Shizuka. Nobody comes close. Harding had a great one too though, which shows how underrated she is as an all around skater, and as far as basic skating quality.

    I never saw that performance, but she was a lovely singles skater, even if a weak jumper for singles skating standards. She probably doesnt have more votes since most people here arent as interested in pro skaters, especialy ones who did compete at the World Pros often.

    Shizuka. Mirai also has a great one in terms of edges and speed (I saw an amazing one during one of her exhibitions)

    Here is the link to that finale. She skated to Tchaikovsky's serenade for strings.... The Ina Bauer starts at 3:26 and lasts about 8 seconds. It's an inside IB, however, and not as good as I had thought at that time (when compared with some of the other singles skaters).

    I'm not a fan of Shizuka's with the over-the-top back bend, to be honest. IMO, Sasha. Rachel's was really nice too. I love those long Inas and long spread eagles!

    Me neither. Although I do find it impressive, I don't find it appealing.

    I will sound like an annoying MK fan, but I love her ina bauer.

    I agree about Babilonia & Gardner, and Harding's great ina bauers.

    Hi,
    I think Katia’s Ina Bauer is very beautiful. In this video there a small collection of Katia performing this particular element.

    48 sec with the ribbon
    53 sec during a Dixon show
    At 2.53 It’s the Serenade for Strings performed in Korea
    3.41 Beautiful Ina Bauer from the Alacran’s performance
    4.13 this is from this year Dixon Family show, very beautiful Ina Bauer.

    I had never seen Tonya's IB before and wow, was it gorgeous. The stretch between her legs was spectacular.

    Wow, i really liked that program. Young Tonya was enjoyable to watch. The hair does make her look a little like Pauline Hanson though..
