    I just noticed Elizabet is training with Eteri. Her jumps look so much bigger than before.

    The thread title remind me of Dorothy Hamill being called
    the last single skater to win the Olympics without a triple jump.

    She won 1976 Olympics and Worlds.
    She had 2A and that was enough(jumps-wise) to win.

    Skaters of next generation like Linda Fratianne, Anett Potzsch and Dagmar Lurz
    had triple jumps.

    They pushed boundary to end 2 decades of 2A era.


    "Is boundary moving now?"


    Are Trusova, Shcherbakova and Kihira present day of them?

    Pushing boundary to end 3 decades of 3Lz era.

    Or skaters like Zagitova, Kostornaia or Sakamoto can anchor current boundary ?
    (like Yamaguchi and Kim did.)


    BTW,

    Wasn't transitional period 1977-(around)90 between 2 era exciting?
    As Witt did 1984 and 1988, 3T and 3S was enough to win.
    But skaters had different arsenal like we are seeing men comptition now.
