Re: Murakami's technique. I should clarify, do you think it's a technical issue that could hurt her during/post-puberty? I think of how Zhang's deficiencies weren't as problematic in her junior days, but it certainly caught up with her in the seniors.

It's difficult to tell. I used the Nakano issue and she managed her technique differences throughout her puberty and until the end of her career. Zhang is one of those that grew and wasn't able to keep the same outrageous technique that she had when she was extremely tiny and light. Meissner and countless others are also examples of not the most perfect technique not working once their bodies started changing.

Ask me a question about figure skating!
