How many triples and 3/3 landed cleanly by the winner at Worlds and/or Olympics? At what age.
I posted this question because given all the talk about number of triples, 3/3s and the injuries. I'm curiouse to know what's the physical limitation in ladies.
The past have shown that when a girl was young (younger than 16) they could've hit 3/3 or 7 triples program like nothing, (Tara, Sarah, Michelle, Irina?). But when they getting older we raerly see them do 7 triple clean program, (MK recent years).
Given that a 7 triple program is legal only if you have all 5 different triples. Considering most US girls are flutzing, and some are seriously flutzing to the point ppl saying they don't really have the lutz. I would say some 7 triple programs were actually ilegal.
I read some where that learnning Lutz at young age it is extremly difficutl to maintain outside edge, since the girl lack strenghth. So most young girls having 5 triples, actually flutzing or never have the lutz.
All this leads me think where is the balance age?
Hope my post dose not confuse you.
