I'm very much in awe of Brian Boitano's athletic ability at his age. He is a fabulous athlete!
^ Brian is still amazing! Can't wait to see him skate again this weekend @ Mike's show!
Midori landed first triple at age of 8
Isn't it interesting to see who is still there after several years. Agnes Z, Kiri Baga, Vanessa Lam, Gretchen Donlan (she won the final).
Is Fumie Suguri still landing triples? She might be the oldest woman. I think Irina Slutskaya still lands her triple loop even though she doesn't compete like Fumie and they are about the same age.
There's also Anastasia Gimazetdinova.. Caryn Kadavy (I never noticed if her jumps in shows are triples or doubles).. can't think of any others right now. If Kadavy does do triples still, she must be the oldest one.
Through a quick search on youtube I could find Denise Biellmann landing a triple as recently as 2002, when she would have been about 39. Not sure if she's done it since then.
Gizmo only looked like she was 44 landing triple jumps in 2010, she was actually only 29 or 30.

There was a video of Tonya doing a triple salchow when she was 40 I think.
