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 heard Yuzu is attempting a quin and recently saw on Nathan Chen's instagram (not sure if it's official profile tho) that he's planning on performing something like 6 spins in the air. I only hope it wasn't his real account nor real citation cause I may not love him as some fangirls do, but I still would like to see him skate for a few more years rather than hear he's landed on a wheelchair.

Mike guthrie was the first person to land a quad cork no trampoline no skates no ramps just his legs. He is the quad king.

watching skaters turn is so wild because in dance you’re supposed to spot and whip your head. I don’t see figure skaters do that yet they still can turn for sooo long

question: if the approach angle to the ramp is made steeper...wouldnt that make them go faster, jump higher and have more time to do the trick?

You are forgetting about advances in the equipment they use. Along with advances in steroids, biochemistry, etc. Not being snarky just being realistic...we will get much farther. It's just human nature.

Looks like a quint will only likely be pull off by a tall skater with very long limbs, if it ever happens.

i don't know who is a "professor" on a computer screen, but this guy have zero knowledge in a theme he's takling about. if 4.30 rpm is the highest rotation he ever seen, he probably not have seen much of skating (because it's an average rotation speed for a senior lady skater). the same nathan chen that they mentioned has about 5.7-5.8 rpm on his quads, and he is not the fastest rotator in the world. there is junior girls that rotating in a 6.2 range, and a junior guy stephen gogolev who can make it to 6.5. russian junior girls already jumping all sorts of quads btw. so quint for a male skater is definentley within reach
