    I swear there is/was a Russian skater (younger than Lipniskaia) who had a even deeper I-spin. I think she was blonde?

    I don't find Lipnitskaya's I Spin to be aesthetically pleasing... it looks very hyper extended /effortful

    OTOH Valieva's is beautiful to me

    Lozko stood out to me in the sea of Russian Junior skaters who were ALL talented -she had something unique about her in her spins and in her styling. It was a pity when she dropped off the map.

    Zagitova and Lozko grew up together under the same coach. Around age of 12-13 Zagitova went to Tutberidze, Lozko went to Mishin. The rest is history.

    Hahahahah They really do, but I kind of see it as something normal.
    But Kamila‘s spins are so effortless, it does genuinely look like her amazing spin positions are way too easy for her to achieve. Like that leg is just there, as if she’s not making any effort to hold it in that position.
    Maybe it’s because she’s holding it with 1 hand only and the hand is pretty relaxed as well.

    You say that as if skaters’ facial expressions are always gorgeously beaming with smiles while they’re executing their jumps. I’ve never seen a mid-rotation-in-the-air photo that ISN’T hilarious.
