    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.

    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. Most of my favorites are those who have precision and great strength and speed when they leep into a lutz or a flip. Caro K in her prime (2005, 2007 SP) was one of my favorites. Her jumps were

    WEll COP does not award aesthetics. Tara mentioned that Mao's ankle is double jointed or something like that, so she completes all the rotation in the air, but because of her ankel, when she lands on ice someitmes it is short of rotation.

    Anyway Peggy mentioned once that a lot of Japanese lady skaters have huge spring and fast rotation to their jumps, she was making comment on Fumie specifially at the time

    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. Maybe you can get more spring if you have more flexible ankles, but... how would that affect one's landing? (I'm not being antagonistic. I'm just interested in knowing what having double-jointed ankles would mean to a skater.)
