    I could see this argument if it was only done once. But all three times I've seen it have been the same exact position: 2004 Worlds Qualification Round (@ 3:10), 2004 Worlds LP (@ 1:42), and 2004 Marshalls LP (@ 1:43).

    I agree UGG, with her flexibility I doubt that Sasha couldn't straighten out her back leg.

    Katherine Healy does this also. It really looks like it's a symptom of the two girls being hyper-flexible, rather than trying to hit that particular position.

    The Pluschenko one is 1/2 turn cheated, but I heard rumors a few years back of Johnny Weir landing 4T/4T in practice, who knows.

    Emily hughes used to do a charlotte-like thing into both a layback and a sit spin.
    One's at about the 2min mark here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MYJm-snH0Q

    Also Rohene Ward used to do triples in both directions, and was rumored to do a 3Lz/3Lz combination (left-handed then right-handed) but again who knows. You can see him do double axels both ways at around the 2 min mark here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sAdIn...ext=1&index=20 . He also does spins both ways a bit earlier in that program . And used to do a cool rocker-rocker triple lutz for example at 1:45 here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQh0w-mIRms

    But as Dick said, it was a nice entrance!

    Yeah I had forgotten what a good short program that was. I think it was actually during the time she was taking with mark mitchell and choreographed by him,... the subject of another one of these threads .
