A weird number of people seem convinced that Yuzu won’t add back his 4Lo and I’m scratching my head as to why. Yeah, sure, he got injured on it, but skaters don’t just stop jumping something because they got injured doing it. The circumstances around 4Lz were very different.

I'm suprised people think there is 0% probability we will ever see Yuzu's 4lz. I know this jump has very little priority and totally not worth it and in this season absolutely out of question. But overall it's not imposible.

Agreed. He landed multiple 4lo and the success rate is very good. I'm quite confidence that he will get it back soon. He had an almost career ending injury back in 2016 because of 4T but slowly he found a right way and it become his most consistent quad in 2016-17 season.

For 4Lo - like for 4Lz, though obviously to a lesser extent - I think it depends on the state of his ankle. While not as stressful to the ankle as 4Lz, 4Lo is more stressful than 4S and 4T. Depending on how healed his ankle is, we may or may not see 4Lo. I suspect Yuzu's strategy going into Worlds will be much like Olys last year. Aim for 4Lo and then only use it if necessary. (However, he had more time to prepare, so I believe 4Lo should be more ready now than it was for Olys.)

Sure, he definitely has a lower success rate on it/it puts more strain on his body, so strategically if Nathan/Shoma mess up their shorts he might decide not to put it in. But I would be very, very surprised if he wasn't at least planning on jumping it in his FS.

I'm of the same opinion as @KatjaThera

 

I think 4Lo will come back for WC. He doesn't have much choice with the new quad repetition rules this season. I just pray to god he's ready for it and won't sacrifice his ankle further.

I don't know about Shoma , but I don't expect Nathan to ever again bomb SP THAT much. At least not because pressure. And remember, with fall and no combo, if judges like you, you're still able to score 90+ :banginghead:

So 4lo will be rather needed.

On the other hand,

 

 

Must say the cross-cut pattern of the T-shirt is very appropriate, kind of like complex ice marks. But would suggest we add a signature 4S take off entry curve mark in there. Or maybe one of those pretty 4T landing marks. =)

Thanks!  All this 4Lo v 4Lz v no third quad talk was making me anxious.  I'm just going to hope he does what is best for his health and ankle.

I believe that Yuzu knows what to do and what not to do, he has been through a similar situation like this and he came back strong! I believe that we will all be awestruck when we see him at worlds next month !

I used one of my vacation days for the day of the freeskate at worlds because I would have been at work for the freeskate and I do not want to be a hot mess qt work in front of the costumers LOL

Yuzu's 4S Stat

A comparison, since I do not think that's accurate:

 

 

 

....but these are two different instances? I mean, for what it's worth, both measurement could actually be accurate enough, and the second measurement doesn't necessarily invalidate the first one (it can really be that Yuzu happened to jump bigger on the second instance compared to the first instance).

 

I'd really like to know the measurement setup for ice scope... :think:
