How do you tell a difference between a loop, lutz and salchow jump?
I can never diffenrentiate between those 3 jumps. An axel and toe loop is easy to recognize, but the other 3... I've no idea. Also, are there any jump combinations that is not allowed in figure skating? And lastly, Is Timothy Goebel the only figure skater to have ever successfully complete a quadruple-quadruple jump combination?
The way I tell them apart is by which foot they skater takes off from, whether they use their toe pick, etc. etc. etc. Lots of the skaters do three turns into the loop and Salchow, so when they take off a way you can tell them apart is by whether they take off of the right or left foot, Salchows being on the left and loops being on the right. Lutzes are from right over left backward crossovers, they reach back with their right foot and then take off from the toe pick.
I don't think that there are any combination jumps that aren't allowed, but I do know that back and front flips were banned sometime in the seventies or eighties and can only be done in exhibitions.
As love2figureskate said, I don't think anybody has landed a quad-quad combination. (Also, Kurt Browning was the first to land a quad [it may not have been in competition, but he did land one], not Timothy Goebel) I skated with Timothy Goebel about three months before he retired, it was amazing!
Hope this helped!
A loop is done from a backwards edge, and the lutz takes off from the toepick, so that's how you tell those two apart. And a salchow starts with a three turn and then jumps off from an edge.
And I could be wrong but I don't think Timothy Goebel landed a quad-quad, at least not in competition. I don't think any skater ever has. He is known for how many quads he could land in a program.(3) And he was the first American skater ever, to land a clean quadruple jump in competition, and the first skater ever to land a quadruple salchow at a competition.(every one else did quadtoes)
As for Jump combos not allowed in skating, are that you can only do so many of a certain jump, like only 2 triple toes( I think), so you wouldn't be allowed to do a triple toe-triple toe-triple toe combo, etc.
I'm a skater
wat they said.wat i was gonna say was the exact same thing...=)
I totally agree with the other skaters.
Well, they've explained quite thoroughtly the differece. But if you want to learn about more jumps and spins, you can try this site: http://www.sk8stuff.com/m_basic.htm...
