It seems I'm desensitized to all the amazing stats being churned out, such are the levels of technical ability these days. Somehow it took me a day to realise that every lady in the top 10 at Russian nats performed a 3/3 as their combo. That is just incredible, particularly for a national championships.
I remember 2004 worlds blowing my mind a little when Ando, Kostner, Arakawa all landed 3/3's but this is obviously a whole other story!
I'm fairly sure Radionova's 3 flip half loop 3 salchow is also a first for ladies??
The only combination left for ladies is any triple, half loop 3 flip!
One thing is for dead sure, Russian Ladies have come a long way since 2008 when Ksenia DORONINA and Petushkova, Ievleva and Naidenova were the best of the best! WHo? Exactly! That is an AMAZING turn around.
