    Yukari Nakano's triple axels

    After a long break, my next video. This time the collection of Yukari's attempts at the triple axel.

    www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhzVYt9R6as

    I wonder how it's possible to land a triple axel rotated enough to get it ratified with such little height.

    Enjoy, comment and share .

    I guess it's a credit to her rotation that she got some of those ratified. I guess I didn't realize how many times she went for those...

    I miss Yukari though...she was such a happy presence on the ice and I loved her spins.

    JSF should have sent Nakano instead of Ando to Turin Olympics. She deserved Gold in 2008 Words. Sadly, she was never one of JSF's favorites, and was always undermarked in PCS.

    Susuki was meant to be her successor. I'm glad that she won Bronze this year.

    Have to disagree about 2008 Worlds. I was in the Scandinavium and it was plain to see that quite a few of her jumps were underrotated significantly.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    I miss Yukari. I loved her skating, even with the leg wrap on jumps.

    They weren't underrotated which is what matters in IJS.

    Yukari should have also gone to one Olympics. I'm more bitter about that than her not having won a medal at 2008 Worlds.

    Not all of them looked underrotated, but the one at SA did. The rules have changed and are must stricter about the UR's now than ten years ago. Still a wonderful attempt.

    i personally think she deserved the 4th place finish at 08 worlds. Yuna kim won the free to pull her up to 3rd. Carolina won the short and pulled together most of her jumps in the long that gave her 5 points ahead technically above yukari. And mao even with the dreadfull fall did 2 triple-triple combinations giving her the technical points to win. Nakano had the downgrade axel and flip, and shes not going to get the positive GOE on jumps because of her wrap.

    I don't know. I lost much of my interest/fanaticism after IJS. Yukari Nakano was such a joy to watch. Was 2008 her Don Quixote program or Malaguena? She just was a beautiful skater. Those spins... After 2008 I realized this new system is even easier to rank skaters on politics.

    I found a video of this performance. The British commentator, "A champion performance", "tremendous". Yet the new system makes you realize that your eyes are not seeing reality no matter how many decades you've followed the sport. Kostner with all her messiness and bad landings was better than Nakano, right.....

    Yes Nakano probably had a better performance at 08 worlds, but Kostner racked up enough technical points ( 5 points above yukari) to beat nakano. In the new IJS its not just about the components and the spins.
