    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.

    **[RESEARCH]** What do you guys hear Dinh say at 2:17? I'm really interested maybe because of the "Yanny or Laurel" thing.

    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

      They don't try to jump high you know? they try to "rotate" they can't just use all their energy to jump so there will be no rotation


    Wait. at the end. Cameraman was filming while skating backwards? WHAT A LEGEND. give him a raise please.

      because they have longer time in the air while figure skaters have less than a second. The video was ment for figure skating (they should have wrote that)

    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

    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
