    I agree. But Yuzu's change of foot looks very deliberate and precise in the gif, unlike most cases where it looks like the skater is sort of lost and flipping about sort of sloppily in the middle of their combo. For once I'm actually okay with a 1Lo

    With his 3Lz, which is a weaker jump for him than his 3A, the 3Lz+1Lo+3S combination tended to look a bit messy and the 1Lo looked almost like a stepout, but that 3A+1Lo+3S gif looks so smooth and controlled with great height and distance throughout. The flow is crazy good

    Actually it's a 1/2 loop which is executed with a change in foot which then allows for the 3S take-off. I agree though that doing a 3A as the first jump in the combo is a better choice for him than the lutz.

    Here is a compilation of it in the GOE video someone linked to a bit back for comparison. I think we all can agree the new combo is an improvement, both thanks to the 3A and the crisper connecting Lo

    There is a 3a-1Lo-3s in this video that was posted on the last page. It's at the 0:58 mark. I think it looks great. Very confidently done with zero hesitation and please consider I started a thread a while back saying how much I hated 1Lo in a combo. Just saying.

    When talking about 1/2Lo jump combinations, they mean the same thing. The 1/2Lo is listed on protocols as a 1Lo because it's a full revolution jump that lands on the back inside edge (like you said, required for the salchow takeoff), so not a "half loop" in the sense that it's only half a 1Lo revolution, just that it's not a "true" 1Lo. I think generally speaking, most people will accept either referring to it as a 1/2Lo or a 1Lo, I just choose to use the version listed in protocols.

    I'm with you. Although 3A now redeems it a bit I don't like this loop either. I wonder whether such combo ever got high GOE

    Thanks for the great gif and the explanation of the jump combo, guys!

    I've watched figure skating for a while now and I always think that the 1 revolution jumps look a bit awkward in combos, but this time Yuzu jumped brilliantly! Can't wait for his new POTO program!

    Let's wait and see how the judges like it. If Yuzuru keeps it for his LP. I am actually curios about it.

    I can't stop watching it; and I watched the video so much the first time Though I never hated the 1Lo as a thing from anyone, this is definitely better

    I think a tailcoat would be so nice, it would flare out like a skirt when he does his quads lol. I actually want a lot of ornate detailing like in the video SuzyQ suggested it's soooo nice. Are you talking about this outfit from D10? It's hard to imagine Hanyu skating in something so... uh... bland.
    Hehe flaring out like a skirt doesn't sound very practical, but now I wanna see what it looks like. I'm going to go with you because I can't think of what I'd actually like except for colours.
    Yeah that's the D10 costume; I can see Yuzuru wearing it only if it was made out of black glitter POTO costume should have black glitter.

    【video】Yuzu in Friend on Ice 2011 Opening!

    Last night, Japan TV rebroadcast the ice show of FOI 2011 to warm-up the upcoming show in late August. Back to 2011, they prepared a very warmhearted program to encourage people who experienced damaged earthquake just five months earlier in north-east of Japan.

    Yuzu was one of four skaters from damaged area to perform with children. A very fresh wearing in white shirt! The little girl wore a hat for him also was so lovely. Enjoy!

    Yuzuru looks good in every color, but he suits BLUE with a passion soooooo much! He's like made for blue. I want to see him in a blue costume for his FS
