I agree with what you said. Judges do whatever they want, but the rulebook clearly states a Lutz must take-off from an outside edge.It seems that Kaori has improved her lutz to much more of a flat edge rather than a clear inside edge she had at Worlds. That raises a technical question I had on rule interpretation in general. Should a flat edge be considered wrong or unclear in the lutz? My opinion is that unclear would mean it is between flat and slight outside edge and you can't tell. Therefore, flat should be wrong edge. Is that correct? I used Kaori as an example, but this is a general question. I know judges do whatever they want, but was curious on the definition, if any, in the rules.
And I noticed that about Kaori too! Is this the best it will get? She really leaned into the outside edge a lot but this was the result.
