Shizuka Arakawa's beautiful 3lutz/3loop(!!) and professional skaters techniques
This is her at present. What the!!!
She did 3t/3t/2lp/2lp etc in the same newsclip. If anyone has it please upload.
I wish professional skating was more prosperous like in the 90s so we can see Professional Championships. If Yuna turns pro, she can maybe bring buzz back to the field?? Imagine Shizuka vs. Yuna, the former vs. current Olympic champions!
So this thread is about 1) What daya say to Shizuka's 3lz/3lp? and 2) What skaters can youthink of who maintained, or even improved their techniques after they retired?

The 3Lo actually looks more rotated than the 3Lz! And gorgeous height!
With all of the comebacks for the Olympics last season I wondered if Shiz had considered it. I suspect if she was healthy and well trained she would have been a major factor.
But she seems busy and to be doing well - and since she is already an Olympic champion there really isn't much for her to prove.
It would be nice to see her competing in a professional championship and too bad that doesn't happen anymore.
