Please do not drag fights from other boards to Golden Skate. We are here to discuss skating, not each other.

The left leg is for stability, but for most lutzes, the weight almost full transfers to the picking leg and there's a split second when the left foot is rising up into the air while the picking leg is planted into the ice to vault the skater up.

That is your opinion and you're entitled to it. Hanyu's arms in particular were rather sloppy in the second half, not to mention, he fell while stroking around and it clearly winded the poor guy and disrupted the program (though I do love how some ubers are like "It went with the music/It went with the whole fragility of Romeo", just like people saying things like "Kostner's falls at Worlds went with the music" ).

It was still artistic and very well-executed, but certainly not one of the best artistic performances as some are saying it is (that disruptive fall in particular saw to that).

Tripping on the Podium
IMO, when it comes to Mocking and Crystal Ball gazing, PTF reigns supreme. Truly unbeatable.

because of these changes, Yuzu's interpretation is better that last season, every move right on! Amazing musicality!

One does not simply skate into Pyeongchang
