Hi! I’m Simone Fisher and I’m here at Clearwater
Ice Arena in sunny Clearwater, Florida. On behalf of Expert Village, we’re going to introduce
to you some advanced figure skating jumps. Hello! Now I’m going to demonstrate a loop
jump. There’s 2 different ways to go into the loop jump. I prefer to go into it using
2 back crossovers and I do a left outside 3 turn, and then I go into the jump just like
that. Some people will actually do 3 back crossovers and just go into it just from the
back crossover. What’s important about a loop jump is actually bending the jumping leg so
you can go into it and pulling up, keeping that back straight and bringing those arms
in so you can actually get the whole way around. It is also important to check out and hold
that landing so everyone can see that you just landed your jump. Now I’m going to try
to loop jump and show you what it looks like. Here I go. I’m taking my 3 turn now, 3 back
crossovers, and hold. That is the loop jump.

    I completely agree, I started skating less than 1 yr ago and I can do the loop jump, starting with either entry, its not hard to do. To go to the Olympics u would have to skate like Mao Asada or something, this girl doesnt have what it takes. sorry, but its true.

    that's true, she could have bent her knees a little more. But I mean, it was just a single loop, she's probably so used to doing double and triple loops that she forgot how to do single loops lol

    Well, I disagree with the skinny legs part, I would love to be skinny like Sasha Cohen used to be… skinny but she had muscles!!! I am jealous u can do double loops, I've been skating for 1 yr and I might never be able to do double loops since I started skating when I was 23 yrs old. I wish I could do double jumps, single jumps look so blah!

    oh yeah, and here in lincoln, the only rink we have is a hockey rink, and all the hockey players invade it when we're done. rough bumpy ice, and not much space, and only 3 nights of ice time a week. (i only go 1 out of the 3). really i cant see how u even do that. mmmm…

    maybe ill get used to it eventually.

    Actually, there is (at least) one more entry into the loop. It's called "loop step" in German. I'm still searching for the Englich term. Gotta ask my coach…

    I'm an figure skater and I wnat to say some things. First this jump is not an advanced jump, It's a preliminary jump. Second of all she is toe pushing like crazy which is somthing coachs teach you first NOT to toe push. Thirdly the jump is never preformed with a three turn. Last that was hardly a jump, because the jump was not high enough. That is just my opinoin…

    i agree. and if you pause it in the middle of the jump, her form is WAY off

    It's scary that she has that kind of pants on. :O With those, your blade can easily get caught in the trouser leg of your other foot. Her trouser legs are far too big in my opinion.

    I don't think this is an easy jump, my daughter has been learning it, and finally landed it last weekend, took her several weeks of practice before she got it.

    floridians shouldn't be skating. they should be having fun outside. skating is a WINTER sport. they only get to around 50 degrees in florida during the winter on an average day and they think that's cold.

    @himynameiseleanor you need to go into the jump with more speed and dont slow down before you go into it just hold the edge, sometimes i find i land with a stand still and i found that i pull my arms in too quickly so i just go up and down not through if that makes sense… just hold the edge and jump through

    there is actually more than 2 ways to go into a loop, i go into it on a forward outside 3 turn then take off without putting my foot down
