    ITA with you Joe... she really extends her arms and fingers, even the way she holds her edge after the throw jumps, she's awesome. I remember while reading the book "The Second Mark", how they said about Xue really working hard on every practice, trying to perfect herself, being a fighter, which was a contrast to her off-ice personality. Still, I think there's something about skating that transforms her... it can't be taught, just like you said.

    Agree as well with you Joesitz.

    I think that she is a master at "finishing" her movements. Just when you think the element like a throw has been completed with total elan, she extends the movement at least one nuance further with an arch to her back, a lean to her neck line. It is almost feline how she combines her stretch as a sign of sheer power. She is a virtuoso.

    ITA with you! Love Xue to pieces! She looks so tiny and quiet off-ice but once she's on the ice she's bigger than life She just exudes charm, grace and mean while power from every muscle.

    I watched it on youtube, when they changed direction, she slipped away and put BOTH HER FEET DOWN. That makes the element zero.
