    Others seem to prefer YuNa's proven track record of consistency.

    There's nothing wrong with people having different preferences in what they look for in jumps.

    Comparing 2A+3T: - Yuna



    • Comparisons:
      • ice coverage: Hard to tell, but I would say Yuna.
      • speed: About the same
      • height: Probably Gracie
      • landing position: Gracie's landing seems stiffer, but has a higher free leg. Yuna's landing is gentler but her free leg is down.
      • take-off position: About the same?
      • rotations: Gracie seems to rotate and complete her jumps faster.


    Comparing 3Lz+3T: - Yuna



    • Comparisons:
      • ice coverage: Probably Yuna.
      • speed: Yuna
      • height: Gracie
      • landing position: Gracie's landing seems stiffer, but has a higher free leg. Yuna's landing is gentler but her free leg is down.
      • take-off position: About the same?
      • rotations: Gracie seems to rotate and complete her jumps faster.


    In conclusion, I would have to say that I wish there were better camera angles of Gracie's jumps (as only time + the duration of her skating career will give us) and that I prefer Yuna's jumps over Gracie's because they are more aesthetically pleasing to me.

    And that Midori Ito pretty much beats them both in speed and height and probably ice coverage.
    (Neither have crashed into a cameraman before.)
