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
a Lutz jump. With the Lutz, the take off must be from the backward outside edge of the one
foot and onto the toe of the other foot. She’s going to be making one rotation in the air
and that will be in the direction opposite the curve of the take off edge. The landing
will be made on the backward outside edge. That’s what she will be doing. Here she goes.
She’s taking some backwards crossovers right now. Watch as her arm goes back, she’s getting
ready to jump, she picks into the ice, and she’s holding her landing. She did a nice
Lutz jump and she used her knee to get up there. That gives her more height. That was
the Lutz jump performed by Victoria.
