    Default Skate

    Context:
    A jump in figure skating that is initiated from the outer forward edge of one skate, followed by one and one half midair turns and a return to the outer backward edge of the other skate.

    ==========================
    What does "one skate' mean?

    Skate = An ice skate (a shoe for skating) ?

    Yes, I presume the skater will only be using one at this point in the jump.

    A jump in figure skating that is initiated from the outer forward edge of one skate (i.e, the blade of the skate), followed by one and one half midair turns and a return to the outer backward edge of the other skate. :D
