Skating Fridays

Gigantic Throw Loops

Hi all! I’m competing at Adult Sectionals this weekend so please send me all the good vibes. I’m competing in Silver Pairs, an age-group specific free skate event, and the Championship Gold Women event. Fingers crossed that I skate to my ability. I’ll recap the events in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, enjoy these gigantic throw loop jumps that my pairs partner I did recently. The difference between these and our “normal” ones is that I am actively pushing off his wrists and gaining more height. As a result, our air time hit about 0.70 seconds! (for comparison, my regular single loop is around 0.37-0.40 seconds, and Ilia Malinin’s quadruple axel is slightly higher than 0.80 seconds) The jump was so high that I freaked out mid-air and couldn’t land it.
