Hi! I’m Simone Fisher and I’m here at Clearwater
Ice Arena in sunny Clearwater, Florida. On behalf of Expert Village, we’re going to introduce
to you some advanced figure skating jumps. This is Victoria and she will be demonstrating
and Axel. With the Axel, she’s actually going to be doing a 1 1/2 rotation in the air. She’ll
be going into it with a backwards crossovers. She’ll be jumping straight up into the air,
holding her arms together, and coming out of the jump on a back outside edge. Looks
like she’s going to start right now. Here she goes. She just landed on the back outside
edge of the opposite foot. That is the Axel.
