yep you're right, it does mean downgraded jump, so if there's a triple jump then <, it means that the triple was downgraded to a double, not a quad downgraded to a triple.
she did a 3sal-2loop-2loop combo a triple loop and a 3toe-2toe combo in the second half of her program and got quite a lot of extra credit for that

About the notation for downgrade, this is a new convention this year. Last year, if your triple got downgraded to a double it was listed as a double in the protocols.
This year, I think they changed to rules so that a triple downgraded to a double still counts as a triple for Zayak purposes, hence the new notation. So we see 3S<+2T = 2.6 points (2S = 1.3 and 2T = 1.3).

Skate Canada used this downgrade notation last year for Canadian Nationals.
OK! Thanks to you and nigel for that - that makes sense.

The < should mean downgraded to a double salchow if I am not mistaken.
Does it now become an upgraded triple due to the overrotation?
