The problem is that the Zayak rules prevent a skater from using this strategy. If you don't do a quad, then you can't take advantage of all your jumping passes.

He has already violated the Zayak rules by repeating 3A, 3Lz, and 3T, and he still has one more jumping pass to fill with nothing but a 2A available.
The rules make it tough on a skater who doesn't have a quad.

SkateFiguring took the violet pill
There is no need of 3F+3T since he's not repeating 3F. He should try a 3 jump combo with the 1/2loop. So he would only repeat 3A and 3Lz, the highest value triples. No Zayaking. As for 2A, even the World Champion with 2 quads in the LP does it.

Despite the fact that I don't like Amodio's skating, I could see he has actually expressed himself quite well in details. His program is very theatrical and very French. If you compare Amodio's this LP with Oda's COR LP, you could actually find that Oda was a lot lacking in the abilities on layers of artistic expressions, even though my heart was much more leaning on Oda than Amodio all the time. So I understand why Amodio got high PCS especially P/E and IN.

So glad CTV showed Nan Song's LP. Very nice effort and he got almost all the elements done nicely. Need a bit more strength to energize the whole program and deliver the choreography to the full potential. Now go home and have some well deserved restth
I don't like Amodio's choreography, but his ability to deliver theatrical program is very remarkable indeed.

I'm surprised to hear about the grading of Jeremy's spins. Somehow I think that a skater specializing in artistry and execution would take special care with the spins--especially since he trains with one of the world's best spinners, Alissa Czisny. Neglecting spins seems like a wasted opportunity, especially since Jeremy's jumps often desert him.

Jeremy is not getting any younger. Between him Weir and Lysacek is it a coincidence that all 3 have been hurt this year? Especailly for Weir and Lysacek trying to get into competitive shape at their age after two years off.
