There are four main categories of spins in figure skating: upright spins, layback spins, camel spins, and sit spins. This post will cover upright and layback spins. Upright spins are defined as spins with at least one extended leg on the ice and the body in a more-or-less upright position. Laybacks are scored as a separate element from upright spins; they appear as LSp on protocols while general upright spins appear as USp.
There are many, many, many variations on spin positions in skating; in fact, coming up with interesting positions and combinations is one way to get higher levels on spins. (A common criticism of the judging system is that it encourages weird or ugly spin positions in the name of difficulty and gaining points.) It’s impossible to account for all of the variations out there, so I’ve only gifed some common positions and famous variations.
I have no words for Mickey He, but otherwise this looks AMAZING!
I love the hues they went with in styling the guys. Such a rich blue is gonna make the fighting look incredible.
The Four, based on the wuxia series by Wen Ruian, is the story of four young men – Cold Blood, Chaser, Heartless, and Iron Fist (badass!)– who each excel in different martial arts practices and use their expertise to bring down corruption and establish justice.
The story has been done before, but never with fantasy elements woven in. Can’t wait to see how this fresh take will affect story. ^^
I think the drama is still filming… so at the usual rate of cdrama releases we shouldn’t expect this until 2014ish
