    I don't see the point of doing that many single jumps in a row....
    I heard Shizza and Yukari did it in Dream On Ice encore (on 7/16). Maybe that's why Yukari looks bit tired in Skate Detroit

    not certain but i think there was another thread recently where the 3-jump limit was discussed for a few posts, and it turns out there is no limit...it was an assumption which became accepted as truth, but nothing could be found in print.

    Either that, or it WAS a limit, but a communication went out recently which dispensed with it

    (maybe somebody remembers the thread)

    The maximum number of jumps allowed in combination is 3 and the skater may only do it once in a competitive free program but, obviously, in exhibitions the skater is free to do whatever combinations s/he likes.

    There was a threada few days ago where we were discussing sequences and how seemingly the number wasn't limited and how you could do several jumps legally in a sequence. While that remains the truth it hink it was hockeyfan who remembered the rule stating that if a skater executes a sequence only the two hardest jumps will score points.

    You sure? It's hard to tell but I thought they were doubles. Just rewatched and you're right some of them might be singles (the last few), but the rest look like they could be doubles to me. I think the video's confusing me! lol

    I thought most were supposed to be doubles, but as the combo goes on, the doubles become very cheated, rotating almost a revolution on ice, so who knows. Still, it was impressive on that clip-I'm sure the audience loved it live!

    After the first two doubles it looks to me like she is only getting 1.5 rotations in the air, with the blade completing the rotation on the ice for the rest of the jumps.
