    For the technical marks, nobody ever.

    Barely.

    Lucinda Ruh 1999 Worlds SP

    Detailed classification

    I think Ruh's jumps were 3T-2T, 3L (ur), 2A, and her spins were :swoon:.

    Her technical marks were 4.9 4.6 4.7 4.8 5.0 4.7 5.1 4.6 4.8, which doesn't really reflect the difficulty of the spins.

    By way of contrast, Diana Poth did 3T-3T, 2A, 3S and had spins that were good but not in a league with Ruh's. Poth received technical marks of 5.6 5.4 5.4 5.3 5.4 5.5 5.5 5.0 4.9, and finished eighth in the SP.

    A triple-triple and a fully rotated triple jump out of steps counted for a lot more than spins that were beyond the technical ability of any other skater in the competition.

    OTOH, if a skater omitted or fell on a required spin, the "starting value" did come into play.

    Lol yeah I meant 97..... But anyway I thought there was no slomo used by the judges at the time... I thought only the commentators had slomo... I remember listening to a TV broadcast of the 2002 Olympics and they said that 2002 had been the first time the judges ever got slomo which they said was why the scores were all over the place and why the judges were so nitpicky.

    The question I was answering when I said nobody was regarding the SP.

    I only saw Lulu's 98 Olympics SP recently and just loved it. Sure, the technical content is a little iffy but she just oozes class, maturity, and elegance. I loved the presentation and musical interpretation.
