    I had no idea he could jump like that, especially being so tall.

    It was very impressive, but I'm sure many of the skaters who perform 3T/3T land it a lot better in practice than in the context of a program in competition, let alone in unison with a partner.

    I wonder how many times skaters have to do a certian element before the good one gets on youtube.

    Wow, the speed into that jumps and the ease they were done with is just Thank you for the link kapriza!
    I'd love to see V/T to integrate a 3-3 in their programmes. It would give them a huge advantage, in particular in view of the fact that S/S will pretty sure continue to work on their throw triple axel for Sochi.

    Thanks Macassar88! These ones are not bad either! I wonder if Tatjana would be able to pull off a 3 flip or a triple loop as well? She is such a good jumper! Looks like V/T might be experimenting with changes to their jump content right know.

    Of course they link their best tries and not failures. But still most other pair skaters probably don't manage to do such jumps at all!

    Probably not! But I guess we can assume this for those skaters having already troubles with easier jumps! Just imagine Vera Bazarova doing these jumps!

    In practice, Maximin Coia 3T-3T was effortless...

    Very true but practice and competitions are two totally different things for Bazarova, Volosozhar and everyone else.

    I'm sure that Stolbova (who does a great 3T+2T+2T) would be able to do a 3T+3T if someone asked her try them in practice and put the best looking one on the internet. I think Moore-Towers, Berton and Duhamel would have great looking ones as well. I would rather see them in competition.

    It's really risky to change up jumps during the Olympics season especially for pairs who have to get them in sync. Too bad they didn't try it this year.

    seems like a russian warning sign for the germans: you may have th3a but we may have 3t3t.

    could be risky in an olympic season, but i like to see how those 2 pairs are pushing each other.

    but my heart totally belongs to the germans and is still crying for mukhortva, but that's off-topic, great combo!

    It is risky, but probably they thought that they don’t need to add technical difficulty to win. So why take the risk? Actually they even cut down with not longer going for the throw triple flip. After Worlds they maybe thought that gold is not locked for them in Sochi, even if they go clean as other pairs were trying hard to add technical difficulty.

    I wonder if those vids are just for fun, or if they are seriously thinking of upping their sbs jump content.

    Maybe Mozer anticipated the videos, and that's one of the reasons she said they're keeping their current elements.

    Isn't it pretty standard training practice to try jumps in combination to strengthen the first one?

    But coaches may change their mind, in particular if certain elements were not consistent yet when being asked. I'm really looking forward to WTT now, as I think if V/T are thinking about adding more technical difficulty, this would be a good chance to do so without taking a big risk.

    Actually I think adding a 3-3 is not as risky than changing other elements - you don’t have to change choreo a lot, like you have to when changing jumps requiring different entrances and I assume it’s a lot easier for a pair, to train how the get the 2nd jump of a combo in sync (at least if landed well by both skaters), than the first one.

    Personally I would love to see V/T to make it happen. But I really like them and so I might be biased with my excitement.

    It seems to be the thing the Russian skaters do. There is Vlad Sezganov whose videos landing a 4Lutz are all over the Russian internet, yet he had never made it to the top 5 in Russian nationals. If I recall correctly there were some monstrous jumps by Pluschenko as well (was it 3A/4T combination or something?). Unfortunately all those jumps landed during the practice only are not worth much.

    Plushenko 3A-4T http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBVM8NB27WI is far from perfect, but not bad at all
