    I'm wondering how you make this assumption. You are saying that it's almost impossible to start fully rotating your jumps? I'm mystified as to how you could come to this conclusion.

    Anyway, very nice for a 12 year old. She needs to fix that deep flutz though.

    12 year old doing 3axel

    If you have to be at least 16 years old to compete in the Olympics, then she will not be eligible until 2010. Also, I know that in China you are said to be one year old the day that you are born. I don't know if this is just the Chineese or an Asian thing. If it is an Asian thing then she is really 13 years old.

    I would like to see her skate and make up my own mind but will I?
    The Japanese ladies also have a storehouse of highly potential medalists, and will this girl be shown on American TV if she doesn't make the Worlds?

    Probably not, so I leave my judgement until I do see her.

    Sorry Joe but you got the wrong person. I didn't mention Sasha's board. It was peachstatesk8er.

    I think she's amazing, and besides that, she's pretty as can be.

    I think she's great! She's only 12 and she is already a beautiful skater. She skates with wonderful speed and joy that makes her fun to watch.

    She's got a lot of work ahead of her. Her "triple" axel is really nearly a full turn short but she has a beautiful double axel that is clean (rare at that age) and some nice triples. I know, I know, her 3-3-3 combination goes from bad to worse but she has cat feat and stands everything up. Truly what she is attempting seems to be above her head right now and I wouldn't want my child to compete with elements that are so iffy. Maybe she normally skates cleaner - she had to have special permission to participate at senior Nationals so they must be impressed with her.

    I've seen kids start out with big cheats and clean up their jumps with time and training. How many pre-juvs have cheated double jumps then clean them up by the time they are juveniles? It's rare to see a truly clean triple from an intermediate but they sure look better as they get to novice. Certainly, kids do clean their jumps up as they progress. For many, that is how the process goes: get them landed and then clean them up.

    Anyway, I hope this little one stays healthy and continues to progress. I'm rooting for her!

    For all these 3/3, 3A and quad talking .... I always feel bemused...

    On one side, if a femal skater can't get these big jumps done at a very young age, it is unlikely they will get them done consistantly later with their matura body.

    So fans are all so exited when seeing a young teeny girl can do all these big jumps.

    On the other side, will they keep these big jumps after the puberty with a more matured body? And even if they still have them after the puberty, but with a matured body and MORE WEIFHT will they get injured when they kept ponding their body?

    She is 12 or 13 now, how weight is she now?

    BTW, Seems no one mentioned that in clip her speed is really, really slow.

    It's basic physics. The bigger you get and the more you weigh, the harder it is to rotate. Height also comes into play, but you can't control that factor. You can control weight. Why else do you think ladies are encouraged to keep their weight low, low, low? Tonya only landed her 3A when she was on the low end of her weight.

    MZHeng, I agree.
