    Who among the Ladies has a 3-3 this year?

    Just starting a thread given all the chatter about 3-3 combos elsewhere on this forum.

    So far the reports state:

    Christina Gao did a 3F-3T at Skate Detroit.
    Agnes Z. did a 3T-3T at the Broodmoor Open.
    Ashley Wagner is attempting to do a 3F-3T as well.

    Someone mentioned in the Yuna news thread that Mao's looking to do a 3L-3L. That would be interesting considering that no one has done that combo in a while. (Tara Lipinski is the one famous for that one, of course).

    Any other reports?

    Angela Wang landed a 3Lz+3T with positive GOE in the Junior Ladies Final (FS) at Liberty, as well as a 2A+3T with positive GOE (both are new combinations for her this season). She placed 7th in Junior at 2010 US Nationals.

    Re: Who among the Ladies has a 3-3 this year?

    Liza T, Polina A, Polina S all have 3lz-3t (or used to)

    Ksenia has 3t-3t and according to Johnny does 3lz-3t in practice

    Mirai has started trying for 3lz-3t and has a very solid 2a-3t now

    Laura I assume will continue to do her 3t-3t

    Miki might try for 3lz-3lo again now that the UR rules have changed

    Rachael has 3f-3t and is working on 3lz-3t according to Tom Z

    I'm very excited to see how competitive the Ladies get with the jumps now that underrotations are finally graded more fairly. I think this would be the best layout for Mirai:

    3Lutz-3Toe
    2Axel-3Toe
    3Flip
    ---------
    3Lutz
    3Sal
    2Axel-2Toe-2Loop
    3Loop

    Is Mirai adding a 3 salchow to her LP this season? She actually presents some issues for maximizing jump points if she hopes to include a 3lz/3t in her LP and no salchow. Her combos last season were 3lz/2/2, 2ax/3t and 3lp^2ax. Then she'd have solo 3lz, 3f and a 3rd 2ax. If she does the 3lz/3t, 2ax/3t, 3fl, 3lz, 3lp^2ax, that is only 5 jumping passes.

    Hope she is adding a salchow!

    But I bet we end up seeings 3lz/3t in the SP and for the LP:

    3lz/2t/2lp
    2ax/3t
    3f
    ------
    3lz
    3lp
    2ax

    ((with 2toe aded to one of the solo jumps))

    Re: Who among the Ladies has a 3-3 this year?

    With the new rules, I do expect more ladies to be trying 3/3s than before. Obviously Yu-na will plan (and land) her 3/3 if she competes in March. Mao will probably plan a 3/3 in the freeskate at least. Mirai and Caroline will both be trying them on and off, so will Rachael. I expect Ashley to try them only if her other jump issues are completely straightened out.

    Miki will try the 3 lutz/3 loop in the freeskate barring injury.
    Laura had a 3/3 last year.
    Carolina usually tries her 3 flip/3toe

    I don't really expect Gao to be trying the 3/3 internationally, but she might at Nationals.

    I think she most definitely will try the 3-3 on the JGP, she has stiff competition and if she can land it consistently it will help her immensely. She may not go for it in the SP all the time where it's more risky and 3lo is not her best jump, but in the LP I think she will definitely at least try for the 3f-3t. Also, according to that icenetwork article, she is also working on a 2a-3t for her LP.

    I can see Laura, Kanako and Agnes doing them. I want to see Miki, Mao and Ashley bringing their's back.

    The technical outlook for ladies figure skating has never been so good...especially when those young Russian gals hit the circuit and add to the current elites. With the exception of Midori Ito, I think this will be the most technically advanced era yet. Yay, CoP!

    Hooray to young girls (and boys) who set higher goals for themselves as well. :D

    Re: Who among the Ladies has a 3-3 this year?

    In Germany we have 3 Ladies who land a 3-3 in competition ...

    Sarah Hecken 3T-3T - normally its really sure and really clean
    Julia Pfrengle 3T-3T - first and only time she attempt it was Junior Worlds last season and it was good!
    Isabel Drescher 3T-3T - not really secure but she can do it, and after the coaching change last season she also attempt 2A-3T ... hope to see her more secure this season

    Pfrengle and Drescher will skate on the JGP circuit again.
