    ^To follow up on that, was there a limit in number of jumps in the combo? I thought it was three, but then I remembered that Irina did a 4-jump combo in SLC. Why didn't anyone try something crazy like a 6-jump combo for the wow factor? (Or perhaps someone did?)

    Such gorgeous, soft skating...just to die for. And very little yakking from the commentators!

    combo with multiple single and double jumps by roller/ice skater

    Such combinations or sequences were also common and at some points required by pair teams

    sequence with two triples, a double, and some other hops, closely followed by a double axel

    But I don't know of anyone doing more than three triples (or a quad plus several triples) in one combination or even one sequence. Just too difficult, and maybe a waste of triples that could be executed with better quality elsewhere in the program on their own.

    Right, I'd forgotten about the "series of hop jumps." They seemed to have disappeared by the tail end of 6.0, replaced by jump combos closer to what we'd see today. (I'm fairly happy about this change, in singles skating, since it always seemed a bit jerky to me. I will miss G&G's sequences though!). I was talking more about something like 3Lz-3T-2T-2L (for the men; I dunno if any women can do this), since it could potentially be a wow move even if it didn't add any triples (just like the 4-3-2 was seen as far better than just 4-3). Landing 4 triples in combination would definitely be too difficult and wasteful.

    Marina Kielmann used to be a roller skater, pretty high ranked.

    She had a killer loop combination :

    Here is V/M's FD, if you know what piece of music did they use from the start to the end of the first lift that would be great because it wasn't Scriabin's Piano Concerto, Glazunov's Concerto No. 2 (Waltz) nor Glazunov's "The Seasons".

    Thankyou

    That is from the Seasons, "Petit Adagio" from the Autumn part. They just mix the orchestra version with piano version.

    I was watching some Youtube videos of some summer performances, and I ran across a Julia Lipnitskaia performance where towards the end of her Schindler's List the music cut out, thank goodness it wasn't a competition.

    It got me thinking, is there some kind of back-up for the music in competition? Like a second CD playing simultaneously where if there was a failure with the first all someone would have to do is turn up the volume on the second CD and the first CD off. Or a back-up MP3 track?

    And what would happen if it were to occur during a competition and a skater's music cuts off, would they be allowed to restart their program entirely or where the music cut-off, etc.?

    Here's a link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3sNE...fxUQSsFXLHFXtl

    See ISU Communication 1817 regarding Interruptions
    http://www.isu.org/en/single-and-pai...communications

    The passages relevant to music interruptions:
    1. If the tempo or quality of the music is deficient, the Competitor/s may restart the program from its beginning, provided the Referee is informed within 30 seconds after the start of the program.
    2. If an interruption or stop in the music or any other adverse condition unrelated to the Competitor/s or his/their equipment, such as lighting, ice-condition etc. occurs, the Competitor/s must stop skating at the acoustic signal of the Referee. The Competitor/s shall continue from the point of interruption immediately after the problem has been solved. If, however, the interruption lasts longer than ten minutes, there shall be a second warm-up period according to Rule 549, paragraph 2 [in Rule 638, read: Rule 636, paragraph 2].

    What was the famous ice dance or pairs competition, where the music stopped altogether and the couple just kept on and finished their program in silence?

    1973 Worlds -- Rodnina/Zaitsev's music stopped in the middle and they finished the program without music. They got a standing ovation & won the event.

    (Google makes me look so much smarter than I really am!)

    Gordeeva and Grinkov had their music stop at Euopeans in 1987. Katia mentions it in her book, so that's the one I know of.

    This link shows the program and explains the confusing circumstances:

    The Gordeeva and Grinkov one wasn't an issue of a music malfunction, that was a matter of the referee trying to get them to stop for Grinkov's loose boot strap and when they didn't pay attention to his initial signal, he killed the music
