Tonya Harding landed a triple axel-double toe combination in the short program at Skate America, 1991. Because there wasn't an ISU Grand Prix at that point, was Skate America not considered an ISU competition? I'm just wondering if that is how Mao Asada is credited as the first woman to land the triple axel in a short program at an ISU Competition. Tonya also landed two triple axels in the same competition (SP triple axel combo, LP solo triple axel).

Supposedly because "Ladies Singles is the jewel in the crown of the Winter Games, and the networks (ie NBC who put up a lot of $$$$$) want that last".

ISU - yeah, well, what are YOU gonna do about it?
Now that's a take on Asada's Olympic Strategy I did not see coming!
