Broken Leg Sit Spin Attempt

I’m still hard at work with this broken leg sit spin. You’ll notice that my free leg isn’t quite on the ice yet. Rather, my free leg looks like it’s parallel to my skating leg. Hopefully that position will be easier to hold once I get more used to this spin. It still feels weird!

Also, I’m not sure if this spin would count in a competition quite yet. I need to make sure my core is twisted enough and that my skating leg is completely parallel to the ice.

Regardless, it’s still a fun spin to attempt!

    Another cool spin variation! Your speed makes the change of position very exciting. So great that you have another option for true spin expressiveness!

      My free leg isn’t low enough – but I think it would technically count as a sit-side variation. I want one like Alysa Liu’s! One can dream, right?
