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 think I read somewhere that Jon Boyang actually started the quad wars :D not really by landing one of the first quad, but by having (I think) 4 quads in a program, and that's how skaters realized that they can add more quads than before :O ... then there comes nathan making 5 quads ^_^

As someone that does flipping, parkour and gtramp I can tell you that people can do 5+ spins, for example a miller ++ is 2 backflips with 5 twists, and someone has done octuple full, which is a backflip with 8 twists

If skaters can manage to jump higher they’ll get more time to fit in a fifth rotation. Its definitely possible

Frank Bare Jr. should have had a part in this video. He was an American freestyle skier that Wiki called, "one of the innovators in the sport". He was the first to perform a quadruple back flip on skis, but the trick he performed was a triple twisting quadruple back flip (with no helmet by the way), and no one did the quad back flip for almost 20 years after him.

I hate this video. So many things wrong with this. Didn't even take in the other athletes who's tricks are just as much impressive (trickers, freerunners, freestyle Trampoline) I've seen a sextuple twist on tramp, several times (6 Spins) as well as 5 FLIPS in other instances . I hate these videos because the people who make them, aren't physically able to do or understand the physical limits of others, and so they place unwarranted limits on people for absolute no reason. There will always be records that are broken and there will always be level ups, as long as these extreme sports exist. Deal with it. And maybe give more respect to the Trickers or Trampers who pull of more insane and more impressive tricks than this. If you aren't physically able to pull off similarly impressive and crazy tricks as these athletes, then don't assume their limitations and put unwarranted limitations on them.

Figure skating: Skate around the ice in big fast swoops. Occasionally jump straight up in the air and spin around as many times as you can before you land - and don't stumble when you land.

you can spin more in skating because ice is slippery and you're running on blades. while snow is supple and you're running on boards.

The only way that anyone has ever done a quint twist is on a trampoline with a backflip or front flip called a quintuple full
