    ISU homologates the first quadruple Lutz jump

    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 Perhaps it's from French or Italian and was just 'anglicized' through translation?

    Congratulations to Brandon.

    Hey I learned a new word today, too!

    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).

    Very exciting day for him. I'm glad the ISU made this decision.

    Yup!

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

    In either case, congratulations!

    I have never seen that word before either.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    so smooth, looks like he's been doing them for years
    Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?
    A: Competition forums on the board are available to those with a Season Pass or a premium membership How to View Kiss & Cry

    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.

    Neither have I - weird choice I wonder why they didn't use ratified.
    Well done Brandon!

    Here is the definition

    http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/homologate

    = sanction, allow; especially : to approve or confirm officially

    Origin of HOMOLOGATE
    Medieval Latin homologatus, past participle of homologare to agree, from Greek homologein, from homologos
    First Known Use: 1593

    I had never heard this word before, and honestly, I was a little afraid to look it up. I was not sure if the word actually existed in English, but according to Dictionary.com it has a very simple meaning- Confirm, Ratify.

    Nice to learn a new word! I may use it in my Toastmasters club for 'word of the day', thanks to ISU.

    Congratulations to Brandon Mroz! This is an awesome achievement. His name will be forever etched in figure skating history. That's exciting.

    So does this mean that club comps and local comps that aren't on the ISU calendar are ISU-sanctioned events now?

    Even though they don't have international judging panels?

    As for the subject or ratifying elements, the fact IJS requires all the performances to be recorded for the judges and technical panel means there's a way of verifying them.

    But the above questions stand.
