Yesterday's Answers: How I'd call it
Janet Lynn: Senior Ladies Long Program
1A - not +seq, because of the waltz 3 in between
2F! - edge unclear, the 1-foot axel would be ignored. ISU rules state, "In combinations/sequence all jumps with more than one revolution, except the last one may be landed on either foot." & "In case one listed jump is followed or preceded by any non-listed jumps the call will be the solo listed jump only."
FUSpB - basic fly: achieved, basic camel: short, basic upright: short, difficult change of position (upright to camel): short, basic upright: achieved
3S<< - short more than .5 revolutions
CCoSpNV - basic camel: short, change of foot executed with a jump: short, basic camel: short, basic upright: achieved. ISU rules state, "In Free Skating a clear visible attempt of a spin combination which results in a spin with only 1 basic position with not less than 2 revolutions will be called by the Technical Panel as a spin combination “no value”."
2S - clockwise
2S - counter-clockwise
2A*+2Lo<* - 2Lo short more than .25 revolutions, less than .5 revolutions. Astricked for being the 8th jumping pass
2Lo* - Astricked for being the 9th jumping pass
LSpB - no features attempted
StSqB - no features attempted. Almost NV, I would review for ice coverage
2T* - Astricked for being the 10th jumping pass
2Lz* - Astricked for being the 11th jumping pass
FCSPNV* - NV - for no basic position achieved. Difficult fly: air achieved but not down in 2 or followed by a basic position. Jump with a change of foot: not down in 2 or followed by a basic position & repeated. Astricked for being the 4th spin
2A* - Astricked for being the 3rd axel type jump and the 12th jumping pass
Astricked for being the 11
USpB* - no features attempted. Astricked for being the 5th spin
NOTE - I had 2S and walley's as well loops (figure style) both directions
