i loved the counter turn she did too in her SP's, all on one foot, into the axel! It was extremely unique and difficult for her time, and unfortunately i think she stopped doing it in the 90's? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TgQaLmVm9I
But I agree with Lanie-looks like Sasha couldn't straighten out the free leg more so than she's doing what the gymnasts can do.
I always wanted to see a single skater attempt a charlotte spin. I remember a Chinese Pair (name is escaping me) doing it.
how could i forget?? the one that stuck in my mind is M/D's beautiful, assisted cantilever in their LP! Also, Natalia's back/inside d.sprial while in a catch-foot position. soo unique and balletic.
Usually in a combination, the 2nd and 3rd jump must be a loop or toe loop. I think it was Sylvia who explained to me that if a skater can spin in both directions, he/she can do a jump in one direction ( say counter-clockwise ), then do a lutz clockwise as the 2nd jump of a combination.
As far as I know, it's never been done.
Has any skater ever landed a 4+4 combination?
