    This also, but both! I think a coaching team of Alexei Mishin, Tonya Harding, and Sonya Tayeh would do the trick!

A bit better conditioning may be necessary, though.

    I know how it sounds. Albeit speaking only theoretically at this point....
    When is this talk of pre-rotation going to end?!?!?!? That "pre-rotation" is a necessary part of jump mechanics and without it, skaters are unable to get the snap and angular momentum to do these multi-rotational jumps.

    Meissner was trying to do triple axels all the time but then at the 2006 Olympics she did not even try one because why do something so risky under the COP system. The thing about COP is do what you can do the best you can not go for something very risky that you can't trust.

    The issue about pre-rotation is not about the necessity of it but about the degree of it. Do you consider, for instance, the pre-rotation of 180 degree a necessary part of jump mechanics?

    At any rate, I was not even arguing about proper pre-rotation in this thread.

    I think it happens when one compares the 3Axels of Midori Ito and Tonya Harding to that of Kimmie Meissner circa 2006 and Mao Asada. I love Mao and her 3As, but there is a difference in quality there.
