Pangtongfan - Alissa has attempted 6 triples in her FP for years now. Planned 7 last year until the 3 salchow wasn't panning out.
Why is the salchow such an obstacle for her?
It might just be that the skaters don't practice some of the easier jumps because they want to master harder things like the flip and lutz. Mao also struggles with the salchow, and I think Yuna doesn't do the loop.
