She even does triple-triples sometimes. Last year, she did a triple-flip-triple-toe at one of the shows where she performed "Mambo" with Daisuke.

    There will never be a skater who has all the checkboxes. People will always find something to criticize.

    Her toe point is about the only thing you have here. Her expression is way more varied than what you say. But I take everything you say with a grain of salt.

    Yuna basically sums it up

    Could have been alissa if she had jump consistency and a triple triple. She had everything else.
