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.

The first person to officially land any quad jump was Canadian Kurt browning on March 27th 1988. Elvis Stojko also Canadian was the first to land a quand double jump in 1991. Timothy was 1998. #factcheck

All figure skating association needs to do is add a mini ice ramp in the corner of the rink. Done.

So much respect for these Figure Skaters, imagine the discipline that goes into Achieving these quads, just watching them gives goosebumps.

Well maybe they can't spin faster, but what if they could jump higher? Wouldn't that help?

couldn't you just make the jump bigger and then get time to get more flips in? for snowboarding not skating

We've been doing five spins on trampolines and in aerials (freestyle skiing discipline) long time ago. So... Yeah, it's totally possible with enough time

People are have already been doing quint corks/ 1440's on scooters for a while now. Relevant to snowboarding or skiing because they are both considered extreme sports
