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.

I feel like so many people scoff at axels. Forget 4 turns, I can't do an axel on land yet! The crossing legs thing is seriously confusing. Figure skating is NOT EASY.

Figure skating used to be so graceful and beautiful. Now it's become aerobic and brutal. They score you off of your jumps instead of how you dance to the program and I think that sucks

"so, you're here to practice quads?"

Try the only quadruple corkscrews by trickers Alexander andersen and Michael Guthrie. Or quadruple full twists by tumblers and Olympic gymnasts. Those are just off your feet on flat.

What's interesting in a slightly different subject is the vast difference in skill in ballet dancers and martial artists. Some trickers can do pretty well but nobody is spinning with the grace and speed of a ballet dancer. Conversely, no ballet dancer seems to be able to 'kick' something except air.

Wikipedia says, and I think it is correct that " The first person to land a ratified quadruple jump in competition was Canadian Kurt Browning in 1988."

Dump all that science in the trash can! People can train their bodies to do seemingly impossible things. It's all about time and practice and some tricks.
I'm doing spins on roller blades and I'm no where near a pro.
