I don't know who will become her jump coach.
It's happy to find the fact that her jumping problems has been improving to me and to see her
3F-3Lo , which we've been waiting for.
the reason I feel so may be I can look it from front, her 3F is beautiful and very delayed. As what I'm sorry is not seeing her foot, I don't know she really rotate it clearly. Though it looks okay to me.

Waiting for on-ice perfection.
I hope so too. I can't take away anything else from her skating. It's just her jumps. I'm very picky about jumps, toe jumps in particular, and judge all jumps against perfection.

Really? I didn't know that! Actually, I don't know what having double-jointed ankles would mean, but I guess you have more flexible ankles? In which case, maybe it's like a double-edged sword.

I'm just interested in knowing what having double-jointed ankles would mean to a skater.)
