YESTERDAY'S TRIVIA: Questions

  • What TRIGGERED the creation of the International Judging System?

  • Olympic champion Sarah Hughes for a long time worked with the same COACH as another American Olympic gold medalist. NAME that coach and the other Olympic gold medalist that they worked with.


YESTERDAY'S TRIVIA: Answers

  • SCANDAL: During the 2002 Olympic Games after the pairs final, French judge Marie-Reine Le Gougne admitted that she had been pressured by her federation president Didier Gailhaguet to favor the Russian pair Elena Berezhnaya and Anton Sikharulidze in exchange for support of the French dance team Marina Anissina Gwendal Peizerat in the dance event. A second gold medal was later awarded to Jamie Sale and David Pelletier. This is the only time 2 gold medals have been awarded in Olympic figure skating. The IJS system was then invented so that it would be nearly impossible for any one official to have a major impact on the final standings.


YESTERDAY'S TRIVIA: Answers

Jeff DiGregorio:

  • Jeff DiGregorio taught Tara Lipinski up until 1995, she won the Olympics in 1998. He also taught Sarah Hughes up until 1998 and she went on to win the Olympics in 2002.


YESTERDAY'S GAME: You Be The Judge!

  • For my IJS skaters: REVIEW! I have reviewed all of these jumps in slow motion. Tell me which jumps are clean, which are under (<) and which are downgraded (<<)

  • For my non IJS skaters: NAME as many different elements that you can that she uses in her TRANSITIONS.

Since yesterday was FLASHBACK: 2 Thousand and Tuesday, I gave you this LEGENDARY Sarah Hughes...


YOU BE THE JUDGE: How I'd call it


Sarah Hughes: Senior Ladies Long Program

For my IJS skaters

  • 2A - clean

  • 3S<+3Lo< - under & under (see video above)

  • 3Lze+2T - clean & clean

  • 3F - clean

  • 3T+3Lo- clean & under (see video above)

  • 3T - clean

  • NOTE - Many of you were much tougher than I. Slow motion helps a lot but as you can see, but some parts of our sport are still subjective. That's why technical specialists must have been national level competitors or coaches and a panel of three (3) have to vote on each and every call that is made after reviewing in slow motion.

  • NOTE - Don't take medical advice from someone who isn't a doctor and don't listen to technical commentary from anyone who isn't a specialist!


For my non IJS skaters: You found...

  • Twizzles

  • Crossovers

  • Rockers

  • Spirals

  • Ina Bauers

  • 3 Turns

  • Pivots

  • Back split jump

  • Ballet hop

  • Stag
