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?

Came across this interview with Asuka Teramoto after the All-Japan Senior Championships recently and I especially loved this part

“On floor my tumbling was good, but my dance, especially the turns, were shaky. By the World Championships, I would like to make my turns unbreakable like the gymnasts from the Netherlands”

Yuzuru was really given 45.4 PCS with 9.0 in TR and 8.9 in PE… How does Yuzuru only get 9.0 in TR when he easily has the most transitions, one foot skating, and least crossovers of all the top men…
