I want to thank you Lord for being with me so far this day. With your help, I have not been inpatient, lost my temper been grumpy or envious of anyone. But I will be getting out of bed in a minute and I think I will really need your help then. Amen
If you just mean toe through lutz and a 2a, I'd say:
Maria Butyrskaya, Tatiana Malinina, Irina Slutskaya (first lutz entry), Miki Ando (2007-2009ish), Carolina Kostner (when she did lutzes), Susanna Poykio, Alisa Drei, Joannie Rochette, Rachael Flatt(after late 2009), Emily Hughes (when she did the loop), Kiira Korpi (though she rarely lands them)
add Ito and Harding to the list and that makes 13 and there are probably more.
i would also add michelle kwan to that list,
i would agree with most of the people other people have listed .
as far as placing them in order it depends on various factors, age, development.
mirai jumps at beginning werent as good now-they are okay.
kostners some jumps better younger, some older,
joanie kinda of improved with age,
both michelle and irina depended upon how hurt they was.
kiira sometimes good sometimes not,
but michelle and irina couldn't have long careers with bad jump technique. both had decent jump technique
depends on skaters, hurt, age, sometimes better when younger , sometimes better when older.
^ You mean 05-06.
Great technique always leads to good scores/GOEs so I'd look at those numbers when determining this criteria.
very similar to Triple Butz, took some of her comments too
1)Kostner (many have seen her great lutz in practice and warm up last year, and we are talking about teknik and not who brings it in competition ...)
6)Kwan (iffy lutz)
7)Suzuki (iffy lutz)
8)Asada (flutz, weak salchow)
9)Nagasu (iffy lutz, salchow MIA)
10)Wagner (flutz, sometimes toe-axels)
11)Meier (lip, no loop)
12)Meissner (lip, toe-axel)
13)Hughes (Loop went MIA, heavy landings)
14)Korpi (sometimes they are better than other times, her jump arch is very odd)
Not so good
15)Nakano (often under-rotate, iffy flip AND lutz, wrap distracts me a lot, loop went MIA)
16)Czisny (she looks scared going into the jump and I get scared with her)
In the past skaters, Josée Chouinard had a perfect technique on every jumps (minus the triple axel); OK, she was far from perfect in a lot of performances, but her technique was excellent!
Ok - but what is wrong with "looking" scared, or having slow rotation? If she gets it done, why does it matter? I'm going to have to go and watch some videos, but in her good year (2011) I remember her technique as pretty flawless. As far as her body position in the air, on successful attempts, I would compare it to Yu-na (seriously).
For Czisny, everything has to be perfect for her to land an average jump. Even on a good day, her jumps never get enough height and border on UR BECAUSE of her slow rotations. A skater with good technique achieves sufficient height with a tight air position for quick rotation even if she isn't built like a Cohen or a Kirk.
And whenever she isn't focused enough, her body tenses up, her setup goes all wrong, she doesn't stay anywhere near vertical in the air and there's no chance at landing cleanly. A skater with good jumping technique will be more capable of saving jumps even if things are slightly off.
And her technique was never flawless. Her axel technique is never correct like orbitz said.
