Perhaps not a lot of people know Mira Leung. She is a 16-year-old Canadian skater who will make her Olympic debut next week.
I found her skating is so exciting. She's a jump bean, has a world-class air sense and rarely misses any jump. Her flexiblity, in my opinion, is second only to Sasha Cohen. The only technical weakness, in my eyes, is her skating speed.
You can download from the following her free program at 2006 Canadian nationals, she got the silver medal.
I found she's a young skater with great potential. But I've also heard a lot of unflattering comments regarding her jumping technique. Well, her jumping technique is slightly unconventional, her entry is not straight and speed is a bit slow, but she gets job done.
A lot of comments suggest she has the worst jumping technique,all of her triples are of bad quality. I am not an expert, can anybody tell whether there's any truth to it after reviewing this video. If it's true, what the problems with her jump technique?
I'm a big fan of Mira Leung and would like to hear your opinion.
