    I believe that Kim's record is that she has never, ever, ever missed a podium, not even as a child, from the first time she stepped onto the ice.

    This is a record she shares with Dick Button. Dick Button started skating at age twelve and in his first competition he got second in the novice division in the Eastern States Championship. Two years ater he also competed in junior pairs in the same event, and won.

    Here's a GIF of her magnificent 3/3 in the free skate--her very last triple-triple: LINK

    Definitely a signature element she'll be remembered by.

    Oh gosh. This was really the last time to see her 3-3, wasn't it? Even if she keeps skating, doing shows, we'll never see her doing 3-3.... Suddenly so sad...

    I have never seen it live.. It's my biggest regret.

    Which other ladies do delayed rotations like Yuna? That delayed rotations for the 2nd jump are a thing of beauty.

    Thank you, dorispulaski. I've just checked a couple of performances by Chen Lu.

    She indeed delay the rotations but when she delayed them her landings looked.. shaky. ^^ Do you know of any of the currently active skaters doing delayed rotations?

    Much appreciated.
