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.

Forget "ice" skaters, instead train "Standing Box-Jumpers" that like to skate!
Remember the story of the Jamaican Bobsled team!

Listen, If we can't double jump, that means we can't triple quadruple or quintuple.

figure skating would be better if the skates weren’t attached to the feet.

This is an older video, so maybe I won't get an answer, but... I noticed when they're just spinning, they put their arms in the air to condense their body along the rotational axis, but when they're jumping, they don't do that to spin. Wouldn't that allow them to spin faster in the air and hit a quintuple? Or is it about avoiding risking a bad landing?

I love when professional skaters (or just really good skaters) do cool stuff in the rink during a public skate, and all the other peeps are just staring at them like 'omg how are they so good' it makes me laugh lol

I badly want to learn skating. Infact i love skating. Just watching them skate inspires me even though i dont even know how to stand up in those shoes. Sadly we're poor, and i live in the philippines. Which is a country with only 2 weather, rain and shine. We dont have snow and i cant afford to go to those parks where you can skate coz its freaking expensive. I was inspired by vincent zhou. I hope i can meet him and the other skaters one day. I hope in another life, i can become like them.
