Pairs Skating Elements: Death spirals
A death spiral (Ds) is a unique pairs element where the male partner pivots on one toepick while holding his partner by one hand as she spins around him on one blade with her body in a near-horizontal position. The woman’s head cannot be higher than the knee of her skating leg and her body is not allowed to touch the ice. One death spiral is required in both the short program and free skate.
There are four types of death spirals, depending on the woman’s direction of entry (forwards or backwards) and the edge she maintains on the ice during the death spiral (inside or outside). Outside edge death spirals have higher base values than inside edge death spirals and are generally seen as “harder”. Death spirals are a leveled element; like spins and step sequences, levels range from 1 (least points) to 4 (most points). The level of the death spiral depends on criteria such as the number of revolutions, difficult entries or exits, change of hand during the death spiral, and variations in body position.
Back inside death spiral (BiDs): Qing enters the death spiral on the inside edge of her left foot while going backwards.
Back outside death spiral (BoDs): Aliona enters the death spiral on the outside edge of her right foot while going backwards. Robin is doing something like a Y-spiral during the entry to the death spiral; this would count as a level feature.
Forward inside death spiral (FiDs): Cheng enters the death spiral on the inside edge of her right foot while going forwards. She maintains a catchfoot position during the entry and death spiral itself; this would count as a level feature.
Forward outside death spiral (FoDs): The “hardest” death spiral; not commonly seen. Xue enters the death spiral on the outside edge of her left foot while going forwards. She maintains a catchfoot position during the entry and death spiral itself; this would count as a level feature.

Ahh yes, you mean this loser?
The one who can’t seem to stop sniffing Tao like he’s some kind of crackhead?
The one who got Tao to stop walking on the beach alone?
That loser that can’t help but be smitten when he gets some cuddle time from his fav boy?
The one who can’t stay away from him for more than 5 seconds?
And gets mad jealous when people try to get all up on Tao’s space?
That loser anon? Yes, I think he might be Tao’s biggest fanboy there is. But we all already knew that right? :D
