I'm writing a novel that's set just before the Vancouver 2010 Olympics and it's main characters are figure skaters. It's a suspense, so most of the scenes aren't as skating-related, but there are a few scenes I need help with.
1) Has anyone done the Brasseur-Eisler version of the Star Lift since they retired? And if so, who?
2) Have any pairs teams performed a throw triple axel in competition prior to 2010?
3) One scene has my pairs team performing at the 2006 Worlds and winning a bronze medal. I don't really know enough about the scoring system and I definitely don't know the skills well enough to write a sample program. Could someone please put together a list of skating elements (lifts, jumps, spins, etc.) for a sample program that could have contended at that particular Worlds and suggest the technical and artistic scores I should have them get? They're a team that likes to do innovative and difficult moves, kind of like Isabelle and Lloyd always did, but this is also their really breakout year, so it doesn't have to be as off the charts as if it were their Olympic program. Artistry-wise (for scores purposes) they're very intepretive and artistic, but more of a powerful artistry than strictly balletic (think like Brian Boitano's Napoleon program for example). Oh, and they're performing to music from Lord of the Rings in this particular program.
Thanks in advance.
