    Who has the Best Ina Bauer among ladies?

    Ina Bauer is one of my favorite moves. It's a really good connecting move that adds to the difficulty.

    Shizuka had (still has) a beautiful one and I imagine she'll win this poll easily. But I always thought Tonya had a very good one as well, so I voted for her.

    (Hey, shouldn't Ina Bauer be on this poll? )

    Shizuka is the best, of course, but I always thought that Mirai Nagasu has a lovely one.

    I searched for it on yt but I only found her picture, not the video of her move. May be someone else has a way to find it. Maofan would have found it quickly.

    I see that nobody voted for Katia, but she had a beautiful Ina Bauer at the end of Sergei's memorial (SOI 1996) where she held it for a long time, with her beautiful edges.

    Shizuka. Nobody comes close. Harding had a great one too though, which shows how underrated she is as an all around skater, and as far as basic skating quality.

    I never saw that performance, but she was a lovely singles skater, even if a weak jumper for singles skating standards. She probably doesnt have more votes since most people here arent as interested in pro skaters, especialy ones who did compete at the World Pros often.

    Shizuka. Mirai also has a great one in terms of edges and speed (I saw an amazing one during one of her exhibitions)

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    Agree on Shizuka & Yukina. I also love those nice wide Ina Bauers that tear across the width of the ice instead of the usual down the middle. Always very popular in the 70's, Rachael Flatt's version is really a terrific retro move. LOVE this:
