    Best Quality and Biggest Flaw

    I remember vaguely there was a thread like this much long ago, but I’m going to steal the idea because I can’t find he thread. Anyway... no skater is perfect, even if you want them to be. What are your favorites best qualities and biggest flaws?

    Here are mine:

    Alina Zagitova
    BQ: jumping ability, tanks and rippons
    BF: rather rushed movements, borderline lutz edge

    Masha Sotskova
    BQ: elegant, beautiful lines, correct jumping technique, good deep edges
    BF: slow (in spins, in jumps and in steps)

    Marin Honda
    BQ: performance quality, SS
    BF: prerotated jumps, small jumps

    Boyang Jin
    BQ: 4Lz, ability to smile after a disastrous program
    BF: still lacking in SS a little

    Alena Kostornaia
    BQ: Skating skills, maturity, consistency, beauty, artistry, spins, jump height
    BF: prerotated jumps, lutz edge, lack of quads

    What are your favorite’s best quality and biggest flaw?

    Biggest Flaw: Not a true Lutz (so happy she's working on it though)

    Alina
    Best Quality: Jumps, beautiful rippons

    Aliev:
    Best Quality: Musicality, Artistic, Delicate

    Shoma UNO: BQ - Great intensity, commitment to jumps and he’s fearless.
    BF - seems like he saves every one of his jumps which affects the quality of the performance, so bad technique?

    Fear/Gibson: BQ - Great energy, great unison, both skaters show each other off equally on the ice.
    BF - Need to work on their Pattern Dances ASAP.

    Mikhail Kolyada: BQ - Beautiful skater, artistic and emotional. Captivating to watch.
    BF - Inconsistent.

    Marin Honda: BQ - Beautiful skater, artistic and emotional. Captivating to watch.
    BF - Inconsistent. (I like having my heart broken I guess )

    Yuzuru Hanyu: BQ - Technical mastermind, where others fall he corrects his mistakes like they never happened. The best transitions in the business, his programs don’t look as cluttered as some others. He clearly loves skating.
    BF - Lack of rhythm comparatively. Tends to skate to similar style programs and repeats choreographic elements.

    Are you saying this about Mirai after seeing her skate multiple times or even once in person, or is this based off of watching on tv or stream?

    Just livestreaming and television, never in person. I’ll take your word for it if she’s a lot quicker in person. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a Mirai fan and I wasn't bashing her. Just from my perspective on a screen, she slows down considerably the further she gets into a program.
