    What if the skaters improve a different variable in their spins, and their legs get enough of a proportionate strength boost to give them a higher jump, and thus more time to rotate at the current speeds.

    I give props to skaters, as a gymnast I wouldn't like doing stuff on ice. And at the edge of humanly possible check out "the Biles" flip/tumbling pass, it's a double layout with a half. For non-gymnasts it's 2 back flips with a straight body turning half way around at the end landing blind. (Gymnasts do quad layouts, but we have insane momentum and spring floors on our side, instead of ice, again props to skaters; gymnasts frozen spinning cousins)

    You only get dizzy if you spin slowly. When you spin very fast, your brain stops perceiving its environment and it doesn’t get dizzy. Trust me, as a former ballet dancer and figure skater.

    I’m pretty sure I remember Yuzuru saying that he could a somehow kind of 4.5 spin (correct me if I’m wrong) and he was saying that Quins might be possible in the near future, though the focus now I think is doing a 4A

    I feel like so many people scoff at axels. Forget 4 turns, I can't do an axel on land yet! The crossing legs thing is seriously confusing. Figure skating is NOT EASY.

    Figure skating used to be so graceful and beautiful. Now it's become aerobic and brutal. They score you off of your jumps instead of how you dance to the program and I think that sucks

    What's interesting in a slightly different subject is the vast difference in skill in ballet dancers and martial artists. Some trickers can do pretty well but nobody is spinning with the grace and speed of a ballet dancer. Conversely, no ballet dancer seems to be able to 'kick' something except air.

      +Napier Thompson are lessons sectioned off with pylons? Like where you have the center of the ice reserved for lessons, and the edges reserved for people on the public session?

    • Napier Thompson
      Napier Thompson Month ago

      Well you have just called my entire rink (its students, its management and its coaches) and most of the rinks in my country dangerous and arrogant while simultaneously nodding your head at the fact that ice skating should only be able to be taken seriously by the rich. You might be interested to know that at my rink and most of the rinks in my area that not only does practice take place in public sessions but private lessons take place during public sessions on a constant basis. You are free to disagree with me that you think it's a good idea but that it's normality for me and those in my country cannot be argued with nor can the fact that I would and should, under such circumstances, be shocked that others do things in a more restrictive manner. Currently 100% of my coaching time and practice time occurs in public sessions! This is not me being arrogant! That's how it works where I live!

    • adiamonddestiny
      adiamonddestiny Month ago

      I'm going to have to disagree with you there. Just because you're willing to take the risk doesn't mean everyone skating on the public session will want to take that risk. It's incredibly arrogant to think that you won't fall at all doing jumps. And if you agree that falling is a possibility then you can't guarantee you won't hurt someone else. Also, it's not really fair to do jumps on a public session, which can intimidate new skaters, or ruin it for someone who's just there to have fun. And I'm saying this all as a figure skater. If I go to a public session and there's one or two people on the ice, I'll do whatever I want, but if there's a dozen, I respect the fact that they're there for a leisurely time and only do spins or edgework.

    • Napier Thompson
      Napier Thompson Month ago

      I'll reiterate the amended question: What sort of a rink doesn't let people jump on the ice? How is anyone who attends that rink supposed to practice?? Completely daft!! I do rotational jumps in public sessions all the time! Because I know what I'm doing it is far more likely they will kill me than I them... and I'm willing to take the risk. lol If I can do rotational jumps with 100 children herded into 1/4 of the rink, I can certainly do them in a normal public session. The main reason some daft rinks probably do this is less to do with 'safety' (which is a ludicrous concept when jumping on ice) and more to do with trying to force people who are genuinely interested in skating at a competitive level into parting with the high fees associated with the entry to private sessions. There are so few ice rinks they can pretty much do whatever they like and charge whatever they like and we either have to abide or go away... And they wonder why the sport is dying...

      He got the terminology wrong. He meant to say "rotating jumps". Spins, on the other hand, do not involve jumping. He was taping there during public skate sessions where practicing advance elements such as rotating jumps are not permitted because of crashing into other skaters. Freestyle level 2 skaters and above may only skate their programs on Freestyle Sessions.
