    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

    Elena Radionova for now, she has the best looking Biellmann.

    Oh yes I forgot the junior ladies. Liza Turs has a very unique Biellmann.

    Julia's new teardrop position - notice how she alligned her head with her arms. So smooth.

    Mao has it too, though her leg doesn't quite go up as high as Julia, but beautiful enough!

    https://youtu.be/HnXTV1uoDig?t=88

    Also, Mao has changed her transition into the bielmann, and IMO, it looks far smoother and she seems to have better centering, speed, and position:

    Czisny.

    Asada Mao.

    Radionova (how is her surname pronounced? Rah-dee-oh-no-va? Rah-dio-nova?)

    Miyahara Satoko.

    Nagasu Mirai. The hands over the boot variation is spectacular.

    Looks very nice and similar, but Mao is holding her knee with one of her hands - it abuses vertical lines and gives the position a bit laboured look imo.
    Julia holds her foot with both hands like she was hanging up there, creating perfect vertical shape of a teardrop.

    Mao's reminds me a bit of Zijun Li's from 2013WC.

    They're all amazing if you ask me?

    That's not her Biellmann, it's cross grab camel position and she transitions into it with a donut, I've seen Russians girls like Yulia do this too for their flying camels, sometimes it's called a half Biellmann

    This is her actual Biellmann and it's gorgeous, I'm also really fond of her 4CC Biellmann for Scheherazade but this one is more recent

    Julia's is definitely a Biellman even though it's from a camel.

    "Cross grab camel position"?

    I fell in utter love with this sport, but I've no delusions I'll ever catch up with it's terminology...

    i was gonna ask if it counts as biellman or camel so thanks for explaining, but regardless of type, her position is just amazing, some skaters looks down at that position , it almost feels like they are resisting but Julia just goes with the flow (if that makes sense )
