    I love the fact Bebe has--despite being in the era of baby ballarinas--grown into a skater with her own unique style. She has matured that spunk and is now a lady who skates with real passion (not just by showing some angst ala Yagudin or Cohen). I also admire her for always doing some intricate choreography even before CoP came along, and her programs from this past year were just WONDERFUL (especially the LP) and really turned me into a fan.

    yayer

    i admire everything about BB. Her mere savior fare is pleasing to me. Her pressence on the ice has captured my heart and shoved it in the box that is the ice rink. 10/10 for BB!!!! 10/10 inDEED!!!!.

    I hope Bebe does well next season. I really enjoyed her programs at Nationals, and I thought that she had the best mix of athleticism, flexibility and artistry out of all of the up and coming ladies. And I think she can get the triple axel, given the height and power she gets on her double... next year will be exciting!
    Personally i find the loop much easier to do from a three turn entry than just from back crossovers...of course for me i'm talking the single rather than the triple but i think it would be the same.

    Fleur Maxwell?

    I've only seen her short and long from Euros, but isn't she only 16? I really liked her, but she dosen't have all her jumps(right?).

    I think the post was about the luxembourg skater - Fleur Maxwell who i think only has 3 different triples - sal, toe and loop. The Eurosport commentators were gushing over her so much before she skated that i must say i was disappointed when she skated - she seemed to skate slowly and have one of those "pretty pretty" styles that don't appeal much to me. She didn't have the great deep secure edges that we see from the higher ranked skaters and i just didn't get why they were gushing over her.

    BeBe has all her jumps but she has problems with some of the edge jumps because they exacerbate her hip pain.
