Pixie, art is totally subjective, so here we go again, I think Ando is and you don't, we can go round and round. But records are objective, and Ando is the first woman to land a quad jump in competition, and she is listed as one of the 25 most influential people in skating. She is a 2X junior world medalists by the age of 15, not exactly Tara Lipinski, but her achivement at 15 is better than many other skaters at 15.Originally posted by skatepixie

Well Sasha is OK, given her fingers are a bit on the short and thick side. She does not have the longest or most slender fingers for sure, she makes good use of what nature has given her.
Now onto the stylized balletic arms of Ota.......
According to Shine:
Yukina Ota, who is one of my very current favorites, is also amongst the ones with the most expressive arms I've ever seen.
I totally agree, I hope she places on the Japanese national podium and compete at worlds 04
