    Yukari Nakano's triple axels

    After a long break, my next video. This time the collection of Yukari's attempts at the triple axel.

    I wonder how it's possible to land a triple axel rotated enough to get it ratified with such little height.

    Enjoy, comment and share .

    That first one she ever did in competition at the Chuba Regional Championships was her best. Next best would be Worlds 2008 (robbed).

    The 3A in 2008 was so horrible because she did it just fine and then because of the rules she got less value than a 2A. How did that stand? What was wrong with people? How was that accepted? How can the ISU really not change the rules because Nakano was robbed horribly. This is why IJS or COP may be the worst system ever or was from 2007 to 2010.
