    Salchow question

    I am looking for some examples of ladies skaters performing great triple salchows. Links to YouTube videos would be appreciated.

    I also think Sasha Cohen has great lift on her salchows.

    And one or two great exits.

    Oksana Baiul, 1994 Olympics LP

    Viktoria Volchkova, 2002 Euros LP (This is in combination with a 2T.)

    Denise Beillman had a great 3s and probably still does.

    Yuka Sato's salchow was pretty awesome.

    Courtney Hicks (U.S. Junior Champion) has a fantastic 3salchow. I can't search for a video now, but her 3S in the free skate at Nationals got several +3 GOEs and really took my breath away (it was done right after a huge split jump, IIRC). http://www.usfigureskating.org/leade...6/SEGM010.html. She also got high GOEs for it (all +1s and +2s) at Junior Worlds.

    Risa Shoji, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1l33_tteskw, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1ckER_cGqk , she does it in combination with 3t with great flow out in SP, then when she does it as a solo jump toward the end of her FS program, it's huge and covers a lot of distance. Shizuka jumped very much this same way.

    ^^ For all those who don't know, you can tag a youtube video at a particular time. Just find the part of the video you want to point to and press pause. Right click marker and select "Copy URL at current time". Then just paste or hyperlink it...

    You're right Pinky! Risa's 3s-3t was very big and covered a lot of ice. She reminds me a lot of Shizuka with a little bit of Mao sprinkled in. I like her!

    And here's Courtney Hicks' Russian split into a salchow...really nice!

    I can't find the video but I once saw Nicole Bobek do a really nice inside axel-3salchow combination. It might have been during the LP warmups at 95 Worlds. She did not do it successfully in the program, though. I wish more people would do this combo but it is probably not worth it anymore. If someone could do a good inside 2axel/3salchow combo that would be amazing!

    How do you do an inside axel? Does that mean the axel takes off from an inside edge? How is that possible?

    The combination that Bobek did (Jill Trenary, Michael Chack, Michael Slipchuk, and Krisztina Czako come to mind as others I have seen perform it) was ONE-FOOT AXEL-triple salchow.

    Normal axel takeoff, lands on the same foot as it takes off from, on a back inside edge, allowing a salchow takeoff immediately following.

    See Trenary example here (not clean landing on the triple sal):
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFxBgF7jc-k

    An "inside axel" is a different jump entirely. Takes of from the forward inside edge of the other foot and rotates 1.5 times.
    See example at 4:10 here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKv3NJhtm3I

    Laetitia Hubert's 1997 Worlds LP Salchow was amazing, but I can't find a video.

    Surya Bonaly has one of the best Salchow ever.
    Especially those she did right after a Walley and Half-Loop : Surya's 3Sal

    Cohen is the first one that popped into my mind.

    I'm not re-watching salchow attempts, but I think Cohen pre-rotates much less than Ando does. Am I wrong? Or maybe this just applies to quad attempts?

    You can really see that whenever she thought she had nothing to lose. Like in that LP finale.

    I love this combo too. Here is one of Trenary's clean executions of this combo:

    Jill Trenary 1987 US Nationals LP

    More 3salchows:

    Lu Chen 1996 Worlds

    Tonya Harding 1991 Skate America

    Caryn Kadavy 1987 Worlds

    Josee Chouinard 1994 Olympics

    And believe it or not, Kristi Yamaguchi 1992 US Nationals

    But this Salchow is not textbook. Her take off seems to be on 2 feet, which is not the right technique.

    Carolina Kostner's salchow is a great one! the high and the speed in and out are second to none IMO:
