    I chose Allisa's, I think her's looks most like the original. (Denise Beillmann)

    Thanks for the kudos! I made it myself! ; )


    Also, to anyone who did not properly capture Irina's excellence in that not-so-good pic, here are two more!







    Better pics, eh?

    Much better then the bias one - yet a fair comparison - posted! And on the same note, I think the way she forms it fits the WHOLE aspect of a Biellmann, and although she MAY over use it there is something to be said for a skater that can do that so many times being a little harder the once or twice in a routine.
    I do have to agree with the majority on the position of the others (Alissa and Emmie) being better these days, but I think that is manly because of age. The whole thread is based on "current attempts" (how current is that pic anyway?). But for fun here's a few from then to now - giving a little more fair age similarity - but that wasn't what the tread was though.

    These are from Red dog's unselfish sharing and are HR - I couldn't bring it to myself to reduce them so they would fit - but they are current.

    Thanks for posting so many pics of Irina!

    I gave Irina 'extra credit' for being the only person who can do the Biellman on both sides.

    Alissa Czisny has the best Bielmann since Lucinda Ruh!

    I have to say, I can't stand Irina's Bielmann position. I feel that the more vertically stretched the position is, the more attractive it is. Irina looks like a lollipop while Alissa's looks like this:

    But only one scoop and upside down!

    In my opinion, DEFINITELY not Sasha Cohen. I voted for Alissa's because it has good alignment, extension, and great speed.

    I voted for Sasha. Her posture is just exquisite.

    Emily's picture is almost vulgar.

    ? vulgar ? I don't understand. Not disagreeing, just not sure what you mean - disgusting maybe? You didn't say that about the clip from my signature (hope you watched the one with the whole 2min 30sec) and I would think that a girl Emmie's age would have as much ability to be vulgar as a cartoon? - i.e. none (generally speaking). But I just am not sure if I am missing something. I think it is one of the best possessions and shapes out there too. Please clarify only if you like - you can PM if that is better.

    Does anyone remember Naomi Nari Nam as a singles skater. The best Beillman not by Beillman (and to a certain degree maybe just as good better.)

    I would say Czisny of that group.

    Alissa's is best.

    Irina's is my least favorite.
