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 if figure skaters could jump as high as many NBA players could then they could do a quint.

There some black guys that can jump like 4ft and do a 720 spin on a basketball court, let's see a 3ft jump on ice instead of them 2ft jumps and they'll get another rotation.

Does anyone know how figure skaters don't get dizzy after spinning? I don't think they spot like dancers since there head doesn't whip around or i! just can't see it because it's to fast. XD

3:05 I disagree with this statement. Boyang Jin started the Quad Race with his Quad Lutz in 2015 and the first man ever to land four quads in a program at the 2016 Four Continents Championships.

Am I the only one who thinks Nathan Chen is overrated? Sure he scores a lot of points and his athleticism is incredible but his skating is just ugly (neither am I saying that I can do better). Compared to Yuzuru Hanyu, he is completely outshined

Well according to Yuzuru Hanyu there is an athlete that could possibly jump a quint and that's Boyang Jin. He's even anticipating the day he will see Boyang Jin jump a quint. Despite what science says, Yuzu's belief in Boyang Jin is greater.

Quintuples are impossible because humans only have 4 muscles in their quadriceps. For the sake of figure skating, we must use teh machine learningz, AI chatbots, etc. to genetically upgrade our quadriceps to quintriceps (or, better yet, sexiceps)!!!1!

Well 2 years ago an inline skater (Wake Schepman) landed a 1620 degree straight rotation (No cork) in both practice and competition. So that's 4.5 right there.

All of this is based on improving RPM; what about jump height and the strength to pull off the harder landing? Everyone just glosses over them as if it's impossible for an even freaker athlete to come along and get more height while maintaining ~400 rpm. How much more height would they need, if impossible why, etc.

You're telling the human race something is nearly impossible... you're incorrect. Thats like saying we are done evolving...
