    The reason you felt so dizzy when turning was because you weren't spotting. If you have your eyes trained to a certain area and then keep your head there until the last second until you have to turn you won't get as disoriented.

    I think I read somewhere that Jon Boyang actually started the quad wars :D not really by landing one of the first quad, but by having (I think) 4 quads in a program, and that's how skaters realized that they can add more quads than before :O ... then there comes nathan making 5 quads ^_^

    As someone that does flipping, parkour and gtramp I can tell you that people can do 5+ spins, for example a miller ++ is 2 backflips with 5 twists, and someone has done octuple full, which is a backflip with 8 twists

    Frank Bare Jr. should have had a part in this video. He was an American freestyle skier that Wiki called, "one of the innovators in the sport". He was the first to perform a quadruple back flip on skis, but the trick he performed was a triple twisting quadruple back flip (with no helmet by the way), and no one did the quad back flip for almost 20 years after him.

    Parker Linnarz 2 months ago

    I hate this video. So many things wrong with this. Didn't even take in the other athletes who's tricks are just as much impressive (trickers, freerunners, freestyle Trampoline) I've seen a sextuple twist on tramp, several times (6 Spins) as well as 5 FLIPS in other instances . I hate these videos because the people who make them, aren't physically able to do or understand the physical limits of others, and so they place unwarranted limits on people for absolute no reason. There will always be records that are broken and there will always be level ups, as long as these extreme sports exist. Deal with it. And maybe give more respect to the Trickers or Trampers who pull of more insane and more impressive tricks than this. If you aren't physically able to pull off similarly impressive and crazy tricks as these athletes, then don't assume their limitations and put unwarranted limitations on them.

      This is a video about figure skating. Tricks on the trampoline and jumps in figure skating are completely different. People get far more air time on trampolines. I don't think it is fair to compare. Remember, jumps in Figure Skating is just like jumping into the air and spinning. Nothing to propel yourself but your own body.
      Either way, Figure Skating isn't an extreme sport, it's a mixture of artistic ability and athleticism. Extreme sports can get their own video.

    Figure skating: Skate around the ice in big fast swoops. Occasionally jump straight up in the air and spin around as many times as you can before you land - and don't stumble when you land.

  • Sally Lemon
    Sally Lemon 2 months ago

    you can spin more in skating because ice is slippery and you're running on blades. while snow is supple and you're running on boards.

      +Bela Wood ya ikr. Some of those girls are lucky enough to keep their body though. Like there was this one girl at the four continents that we watched today and she is 18 and her body shape is very thin, so I'm not surprised she can do all her jumps lol. But yeah the body shape is very important I agree, cause sometimes it makes things more difficult/ easy than for other people.

    What if the skaters improve a different variable in their spins, and their legs get enough of a proportionate strength boost to give them a higher jump, and thus more time to rotate at the current speeds.

  • Aleida Ackerman
    Aleida Ackerman 3 months ago

    I give props to skaters, as a gymnast I wouldn't like doing stuff on ice. And at the edge of humanly possible check out "the Biles" flip/tumbling pass, it's a double layout with a half. For non-gymnasts it's 2 back flips with a straight body turning half way around at the end landing blind. (Gymnasts do quad layouts, but we have insane momentum and spring floors on our side, instead of ice, again props to skaters; gymnasts frozen spinning cousins)
