    The Ladies 3A Club

    Thanks to Seanibu we have a similar topic of listing special people.

    Same criteria: Which lady has successfully landed a ratified 3A. Forget the practices.

    (I think it is a smaller club than the gentlemen's quad club)

    I'll start off with Tonya Harding and add Mao Asada.

    Yukari Nakano. She landed one in the Asian Figure Skating Championships 2005 with a GOE+

    She also landed one in Skate Canada in 2005, and in the 2002 Japanese Nationals.

    Don't forget Midori Ito :D

    Who was the Russian skater that landed a clean 3A at a grand prix event around the 2004 / 2005 season? It might've been at the Skate Canada where Yukari landed hers, but I could be mistaken... and whatever happened to this skater?

    "Clean," - Relativity thing again. Ratified / counted in score? Yes.

    Someone might need to back me on this, I lost some credibility (as well I should) for my Caroline / Miria 3a comment. But I personally posses the vid on this.

    AFAIK, the only time Meissner has landed a 3A in competition was 05 Nationals. She's fallen or doubled the others.

    Both Ludmila Nelidina and Yukari Nakano hit triple Axels at Skate America 2002 in Spokane. They were the first ladies 3A's in a decade. (Nelidina finished fifth in the competition, Nakano seventh).

    PS. Here's a nice article on Nelidina from the Golden Skate archives (the best source of figure skating information on the 'Net! )

    http://www.goldenskate.com/articles/2002/112402.shtml

    Trivia factoid: She is the tallest woman ever to do a triple Axel, and the only European.

    I thought that the only time she had stood up on the triple axel was at 2005 Nationals. That was the last judged under 6.0 too wasnt it? Many say it was a half turn short on the landing - a very good attempt but not "landed".

    Surya has landed a quad salchow that was half a turn short on the landing and tat wasn't ratified.

    Nelidina and Nakano landed 3As at 2002 skate America (or was it 2003 skate america?). I think it was 2002. Too bad Nelidina quit the sport, what with the dearth in Russian Ladies' skating at the moment

    Didn't they ratify Yoshie's at Bofrost in the same year? (2002)

    Aki Sawada's ISU bio mentions that she "has landed triple Axels in national competitions" [in Japan]: http://www.isufs.org/bios/isufs00006264.htm
    I believe she attempted them on the JGP several years ago (before CoP), but don't recall hearing that she has lately.
