    Another ugly jump to add to his collection? The way he goes into his jumps, his body won't last long.

    Haha. We'll see. I actually think he's going to be big.

    And I'm not sure anyone in the world jumps 4T as the second jump in a combo. Not even men.
    I'm not familiar with who Vik Baldwin is honestly and I can't find a whole lot on him. He posts on Yulia's VK page and posted this video recently there. http://vk.com/video218676084_167913597

    It looks like Yulia was right there taking notes.

    If he gets consistent enough and fixes up his combos he'll be a contender for sure but I'm saying that his techniques are not doing him any favors. Its not only ugly to look at but it can do some serious damage on his body if he has one bad mishap.

    If I am not wrong then 4lz is already executed? By whom I don't remember.

    Yes, it is. By Mroz. Here's the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMQ8qNTG-jY

    Well. I agree with that. But it's not that ugly

    This is most likely the smoking gun that Yulia has been landing all her quads in practice. I mean look how pleased Eteri looks. http://vk.com/video218676084_168111462

    What happened to Mroz, I remember he suddenly vanished in 2012?

    I thought about what Sam said about Yulia's probably 2A-4T. The more i think about it the more I think it is reasonable..

    I think a solo 4T would be incredibly awkward for her and if she can maintain her body, she could probably manage a 4T. Also, because of her straight-edge axel technique, she does get a lot of speed out of the jump. Plus, she will get two tries at it in the FS then.

    It would be really interesting to see, I admit. If she can do it!

    I'd like to see Hanyu try a 4Lz. I feel like he'd be the only one who could make such a jump look aesthetically pleasing. I remember Brandon's 4Lz, it was pretty ugly :/

    He trained it. It's said he didn't think it was worth the points, though.

    Is there any different between 3A-4T and 4T-3A, which combination gets more points?
