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.

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

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.
