idk what the presscon said
His 3Lz+1Lo+3S combination in Sochi was considered as a sequence, and Takeshi Honda said it was because Yuzuru jumped newly the last one. But honestly speaking, I could not see the difference at that time clearly , before re-viewing it.
Shoma succeeded 2A+1Lo+3F in this video, and received a high mark.
I think when the second single loop has a certain distance, it looks great, not seeing like a stepping out.
Edit: That's why Yuzuru's 3A+1Lo+3S looks so great
Oh, by the way, for those who miss Jazzy Yuzuru ;
i never even knew the 3 combo jump where the single loop is in the middle part even existed before I saw yuzuru. up until that point i only saw ladies and regarded their jumps as "the best and the hardest" jumps because i was so bombarded by the media hype of ladies singles.
Vote Yuzu’s numbers in BS Japan’s ex program in September
BS Japan TV takes place an event for Japan Open. People can vote their favorite ice show numbers among 50 selected ones. The host will broadcast the numbers on top ranking. (It doesn’t mention how many numbers they will broadcast at last.)
Yuzu has two numbers among the list –
(#23) 2011 Romeo & Juliet and
(#46) 2008 Amazonic 死の舞踏

BTW, since I was looking at previous protocols I found something interesting. His SP layout usually doesn't change compared to his FS layout. I actually thought NDP & R&Jv2 has a similar layout except with the order of the quads but when I reviewed the scorecards the 3 jump was actually 3Lz+2T+2T. He did it at GPF, Nationals, 4CC & Worlds. Findlandia's FS layout was also different than the GP series, it has 2 3Lz combinations instead of the 2 3A combinations. It seems to me that Team BOrser uses Senior B competitions to gauge the riskiness of the layout so I his new FS may still change layout. As BOrser said before, Yuzu never skates the same program twice, there will always be variances no matter how indistinguishable it is.
So he has done a 2Lo at the end of combination (granted, it was 7 years ago), interesting.BTW, since I was looking at previous protocols I found something interesting.

I think SP layouts change much less because they have much tighter restrictions on what solo jumps/combinations are allowed, maybe as a carryover from 6.0 when the SP used to be the "technical program". LPs aren't called the free programs for nothing (although, with Zayak rules and whatnot how free is it really lol) I think Chan helped popularize the __+1Lo+3S jump in recent years.
EDIT: Thank you echotpe for the poll, I voted!
I can't remember what happened in 2012 Finlandia- 2 3Lz combos you say? I should go watch it...later(I still haven't watched either Finlandia SP). That's interesting though, and certainly likely that BOrser (and Yuzu) uses early competitions to strategize/work things out.
Yuzu certainly seemed to learn a lot from the GP events. I think your right about that
Question: why did the 3S at olys get completely discounted and not just get 0.8 for a sequence? He didn't zayak afterall... is it because the 3S counted as a separate jumping pass? therefore he had too many jumping passes? if so, why did they cut the 3S and not the 3Lz is there something in the rules about that? All the commentators noticed the stumble, though Johnny seemed to think Yuzu had saved it (probably thought he'd get some points for it)
Yuzu's breaking the mould with the two jump passes and 3A in second half in the SP; and apparently leading the way in it: I wonder how Joshua will do with it this season.
Yes he did, although when Denis Ten & Adam Rippon also tried it during that same season (2011-2012), it was underrotated.
In a jump considered as a sequence, the jump(s) before it become a sequence are the only one given points. That's what can I make out of the protocols so if anyone knows better feel free to correct or add info. I haven't really read the technical guidelines word for word.
Ex. 4T+3A as a seq in the first half (4T+SEQ in protocol) = 8.24 (80% of 4T)
Yuzu's Olympic FS: 3Lz+1Lo+SEQ= 5.72 (3Lz+1Lo x 1.1 x 80%)
Max Aaron WC2014 FS: 3A+SEQ= 7.48 (3A x 1.1 x 80%)
