In the link Denise Idel indicated below "triple twist" is "triplu şurub". I guess this is it. Regarding my text, I am in fact working on a movie which has some references to figure skating here and there. If it had been a text, I wouldn't have taken since my only contact with figure skating is the Olympics. :) On TV, of course.
I've managed to find a Romanian reference where they've been lazy and called it a "triplu twist": http://www.onlinesport.ro/forum/showthread.php?t=311940 "Lift" is "ridicare", apparently, so maybe you could incorporate that into your term if you don't want to use "twist" (since "twist" comes from "twist lift").
You're very welcome, Cristi - though you may need to use something else alongside "triplu lutz" to make it clear that it's a type of lift, because a "triple lutz" is actually a move done by singles skaters ("lutz" refers merely to the fact that the take-off is toe-assisted from a left back outside edge). If you search for "triple lutz" on youtube you'll probably find one. Te invidiez pentru acel text, spor maxim!
Thank you, thank you, Peter ! I was browsing the Romanian figure skating sites, looking for something related to "triplu lutz", which you were so kind to help me with. And now, given the French reference, I think I will go with this - "triplu lutz". Thanks again.
I'm commenting here as a former figure skater - don't know if it's of any help, but I know in Russian they call it a "troinoy lutz-shpagat" (literally "triple lutz-split") because the woman's take-off is the same as for a lutz jump (left back outside edge, right toe pick, split position). But I'm not aware that there has ever been a senior-level Romanian pair team who would have attempted this move, so I wouldn't be surprised if there isn't a term (yet!)
