The ISU recognizes and homologates the first quadruple Lutz performed in any sanctioned competition. Brandon Mroz (USA) executed the jump on September 16, 2011 during his Free Skating program at the Colorado Springs Invitational, a U.S. Figure Skating sanctioned event.

Well there's a word that I have never seen or heard used in English. Homologates / homologation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homologation) Perhaps it's from French or Italian and was just 'anglicized' through translation?

Congratulations to Brandon.

Hey I learned a new word today, too! :cool:

Congratulations to Brandon! (now who will be the first skater to land a ratified 4Lz in an ISU-sanctioned competition? ;))

BTW, Mroz attempted 4Lz in both his SP and FS at Southwestern Regionals this past weekend and received -1.75 GOE for the jump in each program (11.85 points out of the base value of 13.60).

Did anyone else have to look up the word "homologate" :shuffle:

Yup!

Why homologate and not ratify? Do I ask an English major or an attorney? ;)

In either case, congratulations!

Congratulations to Brandon! Hope he can pull them off in international comps too!

(I've seen the video before, but the landing is just beautiful!)

Good for him!

I feel bad for other skaters who would have had their jumps ratified sooner using that system.
