We have already mused about two young American figure skaters attempting to make history with new quad jumps, but check out this recent video of 2010 world junior champion Yuzuru Hanyu of Japan.
First - a triple Axel-triple Axel sequence with just a small tap in between. Unreal. We are sure other figure skaters have attempted this for fun in practices and others may be capable, but we have never seen this before. Have you?
Hanyu then shows off his quad toe with a celebratory fist pump. Just as strong as last season, no biggie.
Then the 16-year-old - yes...16...gets a little crazy.
Hanyu does a quad toe-triple Axel sequence, again with just the small tap in between. Now this would be one killer combination for his free skate.
To top it off, the video ends with the Japanese wunderkind doing a quad Salchow...in a finale-type setting. Hanyu does a few steps and bam - quad Sal. Again, Hanyu sells it with a fist pump.
It looks like the teenager is set to go in the jump department for his second season on the Senior Grand Prix. Now let's hope he has upped his skating skills and choreography and worked a bit on his stamina and then we have a serious medal threat...and we hope he doesn't forget to sell those big jumps with a well-deserved fist pump, even in competition.
