    Here is the link to that finale. She skated to Tchaikovsky's serenade for strings.... The Ina Bauer starts at 3:26 and lasts about 8 seconds. It's an inside IB, however, and not as good as I had thought at that time (when compared with some of the other singles skaters).

    One of my favorite Ina Bauers is from pairs skating. Babilonia-Gardner had a lovely InaBauer move in their 1979 worlds LP (close to the 5-min. mark in the link)

    I'm not a fan of Shizuka's with the over-the-top back bend, to be honest. IMO, Sasha. Rachel's was really nice too. I love those long Inas and long spread eagles!

    Me neither. Although I do find it impressive, I don't find it appealing.

    I will sound like an annoying MK fan, but I love her ina bauer.

    I agree about Babilonia & Gardner, and Harding's great ina bauers.

    53 sec during a Dixon show
    At 2.53 It’s the Serenade for Strings performed in Korea
    3.41 Beautiful Ina Bauer from the Alacran’s performance
    4.13 this is from this year Dixon Family show, very beautiful Ina Bauer.

    I had never seen Tonya's IB before and wow, was it gorgeous. The stretch between her legs was spectacular.

    Early Tonya Harding had a lovely Ina Bauer.
    Wow, i really liked that program. Young Tonya was enjoyable to watch. The hair does make her look a little like Pauline Hanson though..

    I really like the movement she did at around 2:08. What is it called?

    I don't think there is a particular name. It's just a forward outside edge. And the beginning is like a canadian (the move the man does during the death spiral in Pair skating).

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

    It's is called a "Deep Leaning Pivot". Others have done them but the edge is usually shallow so it goes unnoticed. Harding's edge is so deep and secure that she almost defies gravity because most would fall over when learning so deep. Today, I think only Patrick Chan could replicate it.

    My favorites

    MK's 96 SP at Worlds:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...RCis1upE#t=82s
    Set the mood for the whole fabulous program, IMO.

    Sasha's original Romeo and Juliet at Sears Open:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...noGZI9Q#t=182s
    Now THIS is a Ch. Seq. I could really support!

    Tonya's 1992 Olympic Exhibition to Moon River was my third one, but can't find it on youtube, so this one is close enough:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...kA5H0JY#t=127s

    Also love how NNN 'sneeked' one into her phenomenal 2000 Nationals SP Spiral Sequence:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...TpbD5hVg#t=83s
    Even with the mistakes, a wonderful program, IMO!

    What KIND of Ina Bauer are you referencing???? There are different types of Ina Bauer depending on the edges the skater chooses to use.

    Debi Thomas did hers on an edge that created a circular pattern for her Ina Bauer. The leading skate was on an outside edge. This seems more difficult to me than doing a Bauer on a straight line.

    However, of the edge Bauers I like Thomas. For the straight line pattern, I like Tonya Harding and Shizuka.

    Don't forget the inside edge Bauer also, which you can see performed by Paul Wylie in 1988 into his camel spin combination.

    I am aware of the different In Bauers, as are many other posters here. I did not see any sense in creating a separate thread for each type of IB. Let the discussion lead us there, as you have done nicely.

    I prefer a straight line Ina myself, although I think a strong outside edge circle one (if that makes sense) is a lot harder.
