3Lz Take-off detail
Now, how a skater with a really good flight time can struggle to land a triple lutz? Here some details from the take-off. I put some other skaters who are using the same technique than Bradie. This technique is called " Short draw updown". The distance of legs after the take-off is >50cm and the free leg ( here the left leg) is going up then down before to get the final air position.
4 frames later....
It seems that Bradie uses a lot her left arm. It can slow the legs work because this arm keeps her air position opens too long.
