It did seem that it could have been intended though, since those kind of jumps are very much a trend at the minute. Like when the 180 spin first got set last year. People have clearly been training that move (see Tomoa setting a similar move in that new video with Magnus), so I suppose it's no wonder their minds went towards a jump.
Not disputing that the spin was easier though, Meichi (I think it was him?) made it look quite straightforward.

Just a heads up for those interested, Innsbruck WC with qualifying starting tomorrow.
I'm wondering if those who've qualified for Paris will compete and use it a warmup or give it a miss to avoid potential injury?

I take it you've seen who's registered? Looks like about 50:50

Doesn't necessarily mean they'll all actually show up on the day. Can't see Jakob missing his home event though.

Tough balance between injury risk and getting some big match training in.

I think Erin said after Shanghai that if she qualified in Budapest, there would be time for a deload week, about 3/4 weeks of training, and then deload before Olympic comp begins (no mention on Innsbruck). I wouldn't be surprised if the OQS athletes miss it to give themselves some rest - they'll have been training hard for Budapest - but maybe the people who qualified a while ago will use it to get prepared for Paris.

Yeah looks like most of the OQS qualified people are giving it a miss, while those who qualified earlier all look to be going to use it as a warm up. Makes sense from both sides.
