These questions relate to required elements, and scoring implications under COP for Men's SP.
Q1: A jump combo is a required element, right? I realize there are +/- GOE implications that might be impossible to predict. But generally speaking, what do you think a typical negative COP scoring impact would be if there is a step out on the first jump of a combo before the second jump is performed. For the sake of this discussion we can assume both jumps are fully rotated, just with a wonky landing on jump 1 requiring a step out before jump 2.
Q2: An Axel is required for Men's SP, right? I believe the minumum is a double Axel. What would the COP negative implication be for completion of a fully rotated SINGLE Axel? Wouldn't that be a missed element? Not sure what the penalty (if any other than lack of points for the required element) is for that.
Still learning this new system..
