    I'm very surprised by the quality of Sarah Meier's Layback spin !
    It is so much better in this video than it has been since !

    1. Meier
    2. Stellato
    3. Dorofejev
    4. Cohen
    5. Kirk

    I knew the answer 'cuz I'm an uber. Warning: The sound and video are terribly out of sync.

    It's also the Worlds Jr where DelSchoes won every phase of the competition but then lost the FD to freakin' Kostomorav.

    How could you justify having Jenny 5th with a 7 triples. including a 3-3 and a 2a-3s sequence??


    By the way, the Dutch judge that gave Jenny a 5.1 for technical merit was insane.

    Because three or four of them weren't triples? They were over rotated doubles

    Unfortunately back's injury prevented her to do so good layback lately...

    Overall I thought Meier was quite horrible in that vid. Horrible posture (may have partly been the costume though) and the first 30 seconds of the program are basically crossovers.
    I'm glad her overall skating quality developed immensely since those days.

    I believe Tamara Dorofejev was the first lady credited with landing the 3T+3Lo. She was still landing triples at Worlds in 2003 (always preferred her to Pavuk) but couldn't pull it together that year and faded.

    The commentator was Todd "nicely done" Eldredge.

    Yes...the mid to late 90's were a vortex of mundane for ladies skating in Canada. After Josee retired, we really had no one that really stepped up to the plate. Jennifer, Susan, Netty were all mediocre. (Jennifer was such a great show skater though!!) If I recall correctly, Jennifer won National's with just a couple triples because Josee completed only 1 triple in 1996. (the lutz if I recall right)

    I don't even know who was in the jr curcuit at the time and given I was a skating puranha at the time...that tells you something.

    Another thing to note: Jenny Kirk really worked hard on basics and jump technique from 2000-05. If she competed for another country, she would be a national champion many times over.

    One of my favorite Jenny performances: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vALL9h1oOmc

    The opening 3Lo, in particular, is far improved.

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    Speaking of Pavuk:

    1999 Euro FP to finish 4th
    ^^^ She was actually so good, C.O.P could not have come at a worse time for the poor girl. She got ONE fricken season before being destroyed.

    Pavuk's basic were just so horrid. Worst lack of knee bend ever.

    I remember Pavuk at 2004 Euros exploding into the skating scene, on home ice, with 3,3 combos, dresses made by her mum and the slowest spins ever! She was really a fresh breath of air, ans she went for everything, the whole arena loved her!

    Looking back, she was really a bit messy, but what great attack! Too bad she could not rotate those triples fully....(and learn to spin faster....)

    I miss Dorofejev SO MUCH!! she had all the potential in the world! at 2000 euros she did a kick-ass FP! she's one of my lost hopes, like Mikkeline and Jenni Vähemä

    Well, horrible basics, slow spins, and all that, Pavuk has a fair chance of winning Hungarian Nat's this year.

    My job requires me to be a juggler, but that does not mean that I enjoy working with clowns.
