I uploaded an improved video of my Polina “Light of Seven” 3Lo transitions video on YouTube! There are more examples and better camera angles and video quality included.

Figure Skating Jumps (Part 3/6): The Loop

The loop jump is an edge jump, launched from the back outside edge and landing on the same back outside edge. It is also known in Europe as the Rittberger after its inventor, Werner Rittberger. Loops can be done immediately after other jumps in combinations. [¹]

I chose many loop jumps that had intricate transitions in and/or out of them, so I’ve also decided to break them down here:
