If an Olympic Champion is not ready to include the Triple Loop jump, 2 years after she last fell on it in a competition, then she deserves to be penalized for not having a full repertoire of Triples as she had more than plenty enough time to correct whatever issues she may have. As for the 2nd claim that dismantling her 3/3 would increase her scoring potential, that is simply not true. You are welcome to show me an example of how that is done and I will be happy to show you that the claim is bogus.Of course not; she was seen practicing it even in the 2009 season when she took it out of her LP. The point is, though, is that she may not be ready or willing to incorporate the 3Lo into her programs at this time yet. To reiterate the points before me, dismantling her 3-3 would be one way she could increase her scoring potential while keeping her current choice of jumps, which is silly.
This will not work at all. It doesn't matter what she declared, it's what she actually skated that will count. Assuming she does a slightly over-rotated Double Axel and claim it's a Triple Axel attempt. The Technical Panel has a couple of choices:First, I never believed that double jumps are subject to the Zayak rule, but said I think they should be. Second, there's a thought for YuNa. She should just declare her solo Axel to be an Intended 3Axel and just do the 2Axel and say it was merely popped. That's totally in line with the IJS's philosophy of scoring jumps as they are called/"intended" (e.g. "wrong-edge 3Lutzes" which are practically 3Flips evade the Zayak Rule )
1) Call it as a 2A, and if it's her third 2A in the program or that she later includes a 3rd 2A somewhere, in combination or otherwise, the element that included the 3rd 2A will be voided.
2) Call it as a 3A<<, although she will successfully receive the BV of a 2A as a result, she risks falling and other potential errors. Also, the << sign plus any other executional issue almost guarantees nothing but -3 and -2 GOE. Personally, I would go with a -3. If so, she is better off doing a clean Double Lutz.
