Question: Kozuka's exhibition program
Kozuka did two jumps in a row in different directions towards the end of his exhibition program. Can anyone tell me what kind of jumps those were and how would it score if he had performed it in competition? Thanks in advance.^^
Was it an exhibition after one of the GPs? Can you remember which GP?
Gadfly and Bon Vivant
I'm pretty sure that jumps/spins in different directions don't get any extra points in CoP.
They might increase PCSs (or they might not)
I upload this file for you
It's at 2:44-2:48
I really like this performance, too. So ...hope you'll enjoy it :P
It's been taken down already.

The only possible advantage to doing one jump in one direction and one in another might be that landing a reverse rotation jump for an ordinarily Anti clockwise skater might be landing on the LBO edge fromt he reverse rotation jump would allow them to go directly into a lutz as the second half of a combination.

That coupled with teh risk of the reverse jump being hit with -GOEs i don't think there's much incentive for the skater.
Conversely spins in the other direction are viewed as level enhancers in combination spins - a lot of the pairs spin one way and then the other. I presume also that if you do a backspin in the reverse direction and then change feet to a forward spin in the normal direction you tick off two bullets for the purposes of level enhancer. Quite a few paris are doing that this season.

Get on it before it goes away again!
I agree, it's wonderful choreo by Yuka Sato again, all his programs are top notch

I'm at a loss why it was taken down. It's from the Dream on Ice show and IN and USFS do not have broadcast rights to it, AFAIK.
BTW, I enjoyed it very much.
