FWIW, Amber already was credited with triple axel in a virtual competition -- Colonial Cyber Series. ...
FWIW I don't get the impression she actually landed it in the Colonial Cyber competition. ...
Sorry, I should have been more specific: The Colonial protocol did credit Amber's 3A with full rotation. ...
FWIW: I am 99% sure that I remember that in the recent Beyond The Rink podcast interview with Amber, host Kevin Wu made a reference to her having (already) landed triple axel in competition.I am not going to go back to re-listen, but when I heard what Kevin said, I assumed that he was talking about the Colonial competition.Again, FWIW.
Can't you fully rotate a jump but still fall on it? Does that still count as landed?
The screencap is here so people can interpret it for themselves: https://twitter.com/FSIgstories/status/1293338026853228544
I guess I thought she would have made it more clear if she had actually landed a 3A in competition. The caption seemed and still seems intentionally vague to me. But good point about the no < or <<, so she at least fully rotated it, which is already great!
As a general answer unrelated to Amber: In theory, yes, I am aware that it is possible both to fully a rotate a jump and to fall on it.
As for Amber's triple axel:
Thanks for the screenshot, which shows that GOE was not visible in her Instastory, but full rotation was.
What I originally said is that Amber was "credited" with the jump, and then I corrected myself to say that it was credited with full rotation.
I myself have not used the wording of "landed" -- except in my recollection of what Kevin Wu said in his podcast. I hope/believe that he would not have used the wording of "landed" lightly.
What we know is only that she did not share her GOE. Even if we assume that her GOE for triple axel was lower than she would have liked, that would not automatically mean that she had a fall.
I will try to leave it there, LOL.
Sincere thanks to everyone for your supportive words for Amber.
