About :

At this year's Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, we may see quad corks in Big Air Snowboarding or in Freestyle Skiing -- and we'll see quad twists and quad jumps in Figure Skating. But have we reached the limit of what's possible? To do a quad, a skater's got less than a second to turn their body four times in the air. WIRED's Robbie Gonzalez set out to find out why five...is almost impossible.

Please examine a gymnast male and female, going through skills and measure the G forces. I'd call about 4-7 times in the more difficult skills such as High bar for men's or Floor for both genderd

Maybe the next generation of ice skaters will rise to the top due to their jumping ability... maybe black people will dominate the ice skating scene.. who knows! would be interesting.

I feel like figure skating has become all about the jumps and no more about the artistry of the sport. Which is really sad...

So the biomechanics professor is the one person we'll never see in any olympic sport, ever?

America. Where fat people tell skinny people how to do skinny people things.

assistant professor vs professor is different, please be accurate. and also, seriously, 5-8x the body weight? did you even think before you speak, assistant professor? 5-8x the body weight means 5-8G - for reference, rocket launch usually is around 3G. Another way to put it, if someone can land with 5-8x the body weight, then F = ma = (5)*45 (i'm assuming low end of 5x the body weight, and 45kg of a light female skater), that's F = 225N. Convert that back to body weight, that's equivalent of squatting 225kg (495lb) on a single leg. ANOTHER way to think about it, you get back what you output (in physics pretty much, minus some loss to frictions and etc, it should actually be lower). So to land with 5-8x the body weight means the skater need to be able to output a force of 5-8x the body weight. Seriously, if someone thought about that statement, you would realize it's wrong.

Don't compare it to snowboarding as if an ice skater could spin that faster that high in the air with a board on their feet

Skaters land between 5 to 8 times their body weight on one leg. Nah, something is wrong with that stat. It's like these small bodies holding up 5 to 8 hundred pounds on their knees.

The first person to officially land any quad jump was Canadian Kurt browning on March 27th 1988. Elvis Stojko also Canadian was the first to land a quand double jump in 1991. Timothy was 1998. #factcheck
