Caryn Kadavy had donut positions in one of her combination spins in the 1980s (I think just the long program)
Thanks for the link to her 2008 Worlds SP. I don't watch the ladies videos from 2008 Worlds too often because I'm still hurting over the results.
I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.
Cecilia's is not donut. It's catch foot camel which is much easier. Donut grabs differently and shoulder rotates toward ear. It's very painful if you don't have good rotation of the shoulder joint and flexible back. Donut mostly done on the back outside edge on right foot. Have never seen one on a left leg for counterclock skaters.
But Kostner is a clockwise skater, so spinning on the left leg is a backspin for her.
I think sfahrut is saying s/he has never seen a donut position in a forward spin.
I think I have, but I can't think of specific examples offhand. It's definitely rarer. Sachelpooch318 gives a reasonable example, clockwise on the right leg.
I liked Baiul's the best and it was the first I ever saw. I liked Arakawa's and Nakano's also.
First i ever saw was Baiul's and I really loved how well she did it. I especially loved it with the hand and arm movements (I think) in her sp from the Ollmpic year.
Same here, first I saw the one Baiul did. In Nucracker on Ice she held the position much longer. It was my favourite version of the spin for years. Until Yukari Nakano came along. I especially love it when she does it in her song version of Dying Swan exhibition at Worlds.
