Shizuka's 14-jump combo
I just watched a you tube video of her 14-jump combo from last weekend's Dreams on Ice, here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mp7RNifuNTo&NR
The video was taken secretly where everyone was stopped shooting. Although someone wrote the youtube URL in FSU, FSU administrator deleted the URL because it was contrary to the FSU Privacy Statement and Rules.
I don't know how the video should be dealt with.

Wow! I wonder what possessed her to do a 14 jump combo! Who was the other girl in black?
Thanks for sharing!

Looks like they were just taking bows at the end of the show & this was a little encore she did for fun. It wasn't in a program or anything. Skaters often do this in practice, tack on jump after jump to see how many they can do & keep it under control. They do it a lot with loop jumps.
They weren't just circular leaps, they were a 3toe, followed by twelve 2toes and a 2loop! lol - amazing.
