So, below are the jump elements allowed/required for the men's and women's LP.
• 1 must be an Axel-type jump * Max 7 (women)/ Max 8 (men)
• Max 3 jump combinations (combos) or sequences
• Combos limited to 2 jumps, but one 3-jump combo is permitted
• Number of jumps in jump sequence is not limited
• 2 triples or quads may be repeated, but must be in combo or
• Max 2 double Axels as solo jump or in combo/sequence
My question is: why aren't skaters racking up points by doing a jump sequence with 5, 6, 7, 8, etc. 2Ts or 2Ls? The rule states, "Number of jump in jump sequence is not limited," so, if I am reading this correctly, a skate could do as many jumps in a sequence so long as the sequence is actually a sequence. For example: 3T, 2T, 2T, 2T, 2T, 2T, 2T, 2T, 2T, 2T, all connected by a falling leaf would be ok. So, besides aesthetic reasons, why is no one doing this? It seems that skates would be able to pull this off, no?
