INSIDE THE ACTION - Figure Skating in The New York Times
Kim Yu-na and Brian Orser explain her approach to a triple lutz-triple toe loop.
It seems to make people easily understand her jumping technique.
You can see some computer animation in that article.
It will be interesting.
Imo, Great Skating is a mixture of Great Technique plus Great Presentation, and a love of music.
Who has this?
I found another Yuna's video in the YN Times. It's very interesting!
A Nation Awaits Gold in Figure Skating
Great! It's very informative and educational.

To be honest, Yuna Kim is the answer.

That's why Sonia Bianchetti loves Yuna's "great skating" so much, and so do I

Hence, have skaters the first one, they can be an answer to your question imo.
Go marry the quad if you love it so much
If that's the 3lutz/3loop from her SP at the GPF, it's ironic they'd use that as an example, because the 3toe was downgraded. Of course, if you look at that video, it doesn't seem to be under-rotated at all, just a minor wobble on the run-out well after she landed.
Excellent PR by Team Yu-Na; that 3Lz-3T is stunning.

Right, but she landed so many perfect perfect, no wobbles or doubts. They should have used one of those unless this is supposed to a sly comebacker at the tech caller saying "look here, it was CLEAN!"

So, I don't see any reason why they should have chosen another 3Lz-3T as an example. I don't think the NYT does have to be responsible for making the tech panel uncomfortable. It's the tech panel's own responsibility.

I believe that it was used because it's the most recent footage of it. Most likely, it was NY's decision, not Yuna Team's.
And, by the way, the DG was erroneous for sure. When I first saw it, I agreed with DG, but later after seeing it again and again, I'm sure that there was no underrotation.
