Yuzu’s Spins Today
Quick notes on these, because I know it’s baffling to most people (it was for me too).
Flying Camel Spin: he lost a level on that because his doughnut position was not held for long enough. Usually he earns a level here using the feature of 8 revolutions without changes in position. Today his speed was not as good as usual, so he only managed to finish ~7 revs when the music ran out.
Change Foot Sit Spin: invalidated due to a new clause just added to the technical handbook this season
The change of foot in any spin must be preceded and followed by a spin position
with at least three (3) revolutions. If this requirement is not fulfilled the spin will be
marked with a “V” in Free Skating “No Value” in Short Program.
His sit position after the jump within spin and before the foot change was not held for 3 full revolutions.
Change Foot Combination Spin: this one is less clear, mainly because he slipped up quite a bit in that one spin. My best guess is that the slip at the beginning of the spin meant that the panel could count less than 2 full revs on the inside edge before he changed to outside – this would have invalidated that feature.
All in all, Yuzu, you do need to practice your spins more, ‘kay?
