Yesterday's Answers: How I'd call it


Janet Lynn: Senior Ladies Long Program

  • 1A - not +seq, because of the waltz 3 in between

  • 2A

  • 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

  • 2Lz

  • 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
