    It's is called a "Deep Leaning Pivot". Others have done them but the edge is usually shallow so it goes unnoticed. Harding's edge is so deep and secure that she almost defies gravity because most would fall over when learning so deep. Today, I think only Patrick Chan could replicate it.

    My favorites

    Set the mood for the whole fabulous program, IMO.

    Sasha's original Romeo and Juliet at Sears Open:

    Now THIS is a Ch. Seq. I could really support!

    Tonya's 1992 Olympic Exhibition to Moon River was my third one, but can't find it on youtube, so this one is close enough:

    Also love how NNN 'sneeked' one into her phenomenal 2000 Nationals SP Spiral Sequence:

    Even with the mistakes, a wonderful program, IMO!

    What KIND of Ina Bauer are you referencing???? There are different types of Ina Bauer depending on the edges the skater chooses to use.

    Debi Thomas did hers on an edge that created a circular pattern for her Ina Bauer. The leading skate was on an outside edge. This seems more difficult to me than doing a Bauer on a straight line.

    However, of the edge Bauers I like Thomas. For the straight line pattern, I like Tonya Harding and Shizuka.

    Don't forget the inside edge Bauer also, which you can see performed by Paul Wylie in 1988 into his camel spin combination.

    I am aware of the different In Bauers, as are many other posters here. I did not see any sense in creating a separate thread for each type of IB. Let the discussion lead us there, as you have done nicely.

    I prefer a straight line Ina myself, although I think a strong outside edge circle one (if that makes sense) is a lot harder.

    In that respect, there are better, but it was how it was used that most appealed to me.

    I voted for Shizuka, but Mirai should be included in this poll. I think hers is second best.
