A few days ago, Japanese star Yuyu Hanyu failed to challenge 4A (Axel quadruple jump) in the men’s singles free skating event in the individual figure skating competition, and finally ranked fourth, which is very regrettable. After the game, there were rumors that Yuzuru Hanyu’s 4A was judged to be successful, but the landing was stabilized. This news caused heated discussions, but was later denied by the Olympic website.
According to a report by Sina Sports, the International Skating Union (ISU) also recently responded to the question about “whether the ISU has made the first-ever identification of Yuzuru Hanyu’s Axel quadruple jump in history”, the Skating Union said: “According to the referee , the jump did not have sufficient rotation and was therefore not recognized.
“International Skating Union Announcement No. 2254 Single Skating and Pair Skating 2019/20 Season Action Difficulty Conditions and GOE Scoring Criteria” shows that,If the words “4A<<" appear, it means downgrade.
The Olympic official website pointed out that Yuzuru Hanyu’s 4A movements were 1/4 circle or more in the air, but not less than 1/2 circle, so 4A was not recognized this time.
As for why it was previously said that Yuzuru Hanyu’s 4A was successfully certified, Sina News said that it was actually the first time that ISU had technically declared this action in its own official competition, and the declaration was confirmed.
However, Yuzuru Hanyu’s final move was not successful, not only did he fail to land, but the number of weeks was not enough.Japan’s Sports Daily said that Hanyu’s week was actually 180-90 degrees less.
However, Yuzuru Hanyu did not give up on this, and responded after the game that he hoped that he could continue to work hard, challenge this result in the certified arena, and finally complete such a challenge result.
