Some thoughts on ladies' quads from a quadster. Also, what it feels like, as an elite skater, to see Plushy in person for the first time:

 

Let's all give young Roman our support by subscribing and liking. I personally love his little snippets of insight into skating life and want to hear more! 

 

I already liked his videos & subscribed haha

He puts lots of work and effort into these videos, they're really well edited and made. I like his Q&A's too; it's good to listen to a skater's opinion on many skating-related things. I like when he talked about the Quad Axel last year.

 

I hope he'll continue competing next season. He wrote in one of the comments that he doesn't know yet but he'd like to skate next season.

Yeah, I was the one who asked him about that. I really want to see more of his skating. It's so rare to see a super-tall guy like him in men's singles, and the height gives him this beautiful graceful quality that's just enchanting to watch. It's like watching a crane in flight, it's just wingspan everywhere with his long arms and fingers. 

 

Have you watched all of his vids? Did you see the one where he does the split jump over a car? Not sure if it's editing or a real stunt, but, wow! :omg:

I remember there being a table like this for men's competition jumps. Does anyone have it?

How on earth can anyone try and make this stats out of grainy low quality insta videos? Come on!

The delay in rotation seems entirely fabricated. Not only do I not know how they calculated with such precision, not one of them "delays" a jump. The delayed technique -- proper one where they close right at the apex of the jump as seen on singles and doubles in far, far older competitions, instead of closing just slightly later after the vault which several textbook jumpers (+ Polina Tsurksaya, who isn't a textbook jumper) kind of do anyway -- hasn't yet been accomplished on triples and quads, and probably won't be (and they don't even have that other type of "delay").

 

According to those stats, Trusova is 0.06 seconds less than halfway through the completion of the arc of her 4T before she closes, and Shcherbackova is 0.02 seconds away on her 4F. Lol.

I'm confused as to what they mean by "delay" in rotation.  I thought "delayed rotation" referred to jumps where the skater jumps into the air first then completes all the rotations in the air.  If the rotation is starting on the ice, how can you argue that there's any delay?   I think heavy pre-rotaters also essentially spin off the take off because they're relying on rotational momentum to complete the jump.  I can't think of one that turns forward, then pauses to stop the rotation, takes off, then completes the rotation - and if they are doing that, isn't it essentially a different jump?  Nevermind that at 180 degrees pre-rotation, the skater would be taking off forward so the jumps should technically be called "downgraded" and therefore how can you even call it a quad (unless they're going for a quint)?

Strangely excited when '2019 Ice Shows' appears under 'Event Discussion.'  Will be worse when the competitions are added with the 2019 date. :dancingpooh:

At least we have the exact date so we'll know for sure after 20 June. And we don't have to wait until the very end of the month. :)
