    Yes, her 2011 Biellmann was her best ever, but I don't really like her pre-2010 Biellmann, as much as I didn't like Sasha's Biellmann: all her positions were perfect, so maybe this is why her Biellmann never looked good to me. I guess it is because under the 6.0 system they didn't have to include it in their programs until the IJS forced them to, so she and other skaters didn't have the chance to practice it as much as young girls do now

    Not as flexible as Sawyer, especially later in his career, but AFAIK this kid started the male Biellmann trend
