    A spectacular 2A right into another 2A:

    This would be illegal today:

    It would be scored as a 3T+1Lo+3S+2T (she did a split jump before this sometimes)

    And two different jump series by the great G+G

    I much prefer these to the hideous 3T+3T sequences pairs are doing today

    No, they don't get very far off the ice, but enough to make that distinction.

    Thanks gkelly, i see what you mean there is definitely a hop on the three turn, and equally a slight hop onto the right foot prior to the second 3Ts. Still it seems like a bit of a bend of the rules, so much so that you wonder why the skaters aren't allowed to include turns and steps.
