Definitions for "Axel "
Keywords:  skater, skate, paulson, norwegian, jump
A forward-facing jump invented by Norwegian Axel Paulson. On a pair of speed skates, Paulson first executed the jump in 1882. The axel is the only jump in which skaters take off from a forward outside edge. The skater rotates one-and-a-half times in the air for a single axel -- two-and-a-half times for a double, and so on -- before landing on the back outside edge of the opposite foot from which they took off.
Named for Axel Paulson, the 1908 Gold Medalist who invented it, this is a jump on which the skater takes off from the forward inside edge and lands on the back outside edge of the opposite foot. There are single, double, and triple versions.
