Andrew Torgashev's flying "whatever" jump in his Bloodstream SP:) ...


... I've never heard of anyone but you call it "The Flying Torg", so I'm guessing that's not it, nor do I see it ever catching on. ...

Thanks to snowflake for bringing the awesome Tomoki into the thread.
It is unfortunate that Tomoki's SP from the 2020 Colorado Springs Invitational livestream on Sep 11 was not saved anywhere (AFAIK). IMO, on that day, both his Russian split and his "Flying Whoever/Whatever" ;) were second to absolutely none (whether examples from anyone else or from Tomoki's own spectacular executions of these jumps in the past).

I think Andrew is great, and I think his "Flying Whoever/Whatever" is/was great (this season he is making a change, IIRC?), but even among last season's skaters, that type of jump did not originate solely from him. As a sample of one 🙋‍♀️ , I will continue to steer clear of using "Flying Torg" as a reference to that type of jump.

But that's not really "raising" anything. Esp since one of the links I posted he was landing his backflip on one foot. Also, since often Bradley is jumping opposite to his usual direction.
