How many skaters have skated clean 7 triple programs?
I fail to think of many. Heck, I can't! But I wonder how many have.
1. We all know Michelle Kwan is the keen of the clean 7 triples
2. SARAH HUGHES has several ot her credit
Are there more?
Rooting for the divas with Kwanford
4. Sasha in the 2004 Marshalls that I posted on another thread
5. Kimmie in the 2006 Worlds

I forgot all about Kimmie and that was just recent.
So that's not a long list at all.
I assume we're talking just ladies?
oh, men would be cool! I never thought about it. I bet it would be
OMLord! That would be a long list. If you've got the stats, please post them!!!!!!
For ladies, Tara Lipinski. That girl had amazing consistency, almost as good as Sarah. Love them, love them.
I think Maria Butryskaya had some 7 triples, and Surya? I bet she did too.

I don't have the stats... but add Browning to the list... i'm pretty sure he's hit 7 clean in one program...
Gadfly and Bon Vivant
I think Midori Ito was the first female to hit a 7 triple program, her Calgary LP, it not earlir, had seven triples (including a 3tl3tl very late in the program and a 2ax-halflp-3sl.
I believe Johnny Weir hit seven clean triples in 2004 when he won his first national championship. He had eight triples planned but left one out.
Maria Butyrskaya = 3Lutz, 3Flip, 3Loop, 3Toe/half loop/3Sal, 3Sal, 3Toe

I'm sure Jennifer Kirk probably did somewhere. She use to be so consistent.
If I'm not wrong (I have to check) also Mao Asada, Yu-Na Kim, Miki Ando, Tara Lipinski, Shizuka Arakawa and Elena Sokolova. Surya Bonaly maybe also. What about Lu Chen? I think that also Elaine Zayak had a 7triples program (4 toe loops, 2 sals and one loop). The reason for Zayak rule!

Miki Ando just landed 7 triples at skate america.
According to Heather's jump statistics, Michelle did it eleven times: 1995 Worlds, 1995 Skate America, 1996 Worlds, 1997 Skate America, 1998 US Nationals, 1998 Olympics, 1998 Worlds (qualifying round), 1998 World Pro, 2000 Worlds (long program), 2001 Worlds (qualifying round), 2001 Worlds (long program).
Resident Kristi Fan
Kristi Yamaguchi landed seven triples at 1992 U.S. Nationals, 1990 Skate America and 1989 U.S. Nationals. I believe all of these also had two double axels in addition to the seven triples.
Someone mentioned Jenny Kirk. I know she landed seven multiple times. I haven't seen Irina's name mentioned, I'm sure she's done seven a few times.
I think it's slightly harder now with COP rules to do seven for the ladies. One jump pass must be a triple triple combo and/or sequence to get seven in. And that would be with one double axel unless you use another double axel in one of the combinations/sequences which is certainly doable.
Didn't Kwan make it the standard to do All 7 triples - as opposed to 7 triples? That's why I wouldn't neccessarily count Zayak since she didn't do all 7.
