Know your skating jumps:
Most skaters rotate counter-clock-wise. Those who rotate clockwise are know as ‘opposite jumpers/spinners’.
These examples are for those who rotate CCW:
WALTZ Jump: half a rotation, takes off of a left forward outside edge & lands on the right back outside edge. This jumps become the AXEL which is 1.5 rotations. A double axel is 2.5 rotations. A triple axel is 3.5 rotations. This is the only jump that takes off forward.
This jumps is named after Axel Paulsen from Norway, axel first landed in 1882.
SALCHOW jump is almost a full rotation (with the slight hook/curve on the the take off some say for example the double sal is just more than 1.5 rotations), takes off left back inside edge & lands on right back outside edge.
This jumps is named after Ulrich Salchow from Sweeden.
TOE LOOP jump is almost a full rotation (with the slight rotation on the ice before taking off, almost taking off forward, some say for example that the double toe is just more than 1.5 rotations), takes off of a right back outside edge along with the left toe pick & lands on a right back outside edge.
This jumps was invented by Bruce Mapes from USA.
The first quadruple jump landed in a sanctioned competition was the Quad Toe Loop completed by Kurt Browning of Canada in 1988.
The first quadruple toe – triple toe combination was landed by Elvis Stojko of Canada in 1997.
LOOP jump is almost a full rotation (with a slight curve on the take off), takes off of the right back outside edge & lands on the right back outside edge.
This jump was invented by Werner Rittberger.
FLIP jump is a full rotation, takes off of the left back inside edge along with the right toe pick & lands on a right back outside edge.
It is not known for sure who invented the Flip jump.
LUTZ jump is a full rotation plus a quarter more rotation with the body because of the take off position, takes off of the left back outside edge & lands on the right back outside edge.
This jump was named after Alois Lutz from Austria.
Donald Jackson of Canada landed the first triple lutz in 1962.
