I kind of think it is (a coincidence). All of those skaters have fine triple Lutzes. Maybe by concentrating so much on the quad they let up a little on jumps later in the program.

Maybe... there's Chan, Reynolds, Sandhu (hah, maybe it's a Canadian thing? ) and Li come to mind.

There's something very strange going on if a 3-time world champ (consecutive too), who has his federation's backing, can't get any decent sponsorship deals that would at least pay for the cost of his training, rink, costumes, coaching, etc.
