GAME: You Be The Judge!
For my IJS Girls: Tell me what her spins would be called as today and name ALL of the features she ATTEMPTED.
For my littles and adults: Tell me which of her jump landings was the BEST and WHY.
Since yesterday was Flash Back Friday - 90's edition, I gave you this STRONG Karen Preston...
And she gave YOU this!!!
Yesterday's Answers: How I'd call it
Camel side - achieved
Camel up - short
Clear change in a layback - short
Basic camel - achieved
Basic sit - high
Basic upright - short
3 basic positions on the 2nd foot - high & short
Clear change in a layback - achieved, but repeated
Basic flying entry - achieved
Camel side - achieved but repeated
Upright straight - achieved
NOTE - ISU rules state, "In spins in one position and flying spins, the concluding upright position at the end of the spin (final wind-up) is not considered to be another position independent of the number of revolutions, as long as in such a final wind-up no additional feature is executed (change of edge, variation of position etc.) That is why in this case, the spin would change from a FCSp to a FCoSp and be not according to requirements.
I CAN'T THANK KAREN ENOUGH FOR REACHING OUT TO ALL OF OUR CONTEST PARTICIPANTS!
We are ALL wishing you and your loved ones GOOD HEALTH and SAFETY from here in the States!
