Bonaly's backward flip??? Just because the skating world won't recognize it because they can't do it, she should be recognized and applauded for her daring, artistic interpretation and awesomeness. Video is not accurate

And Timothy did a 4+4? no one has ever done that even in today. If you count the second jump as quad, then I would say it is so underrotated and not even close to perfection

What the heck the research the researcher can't tell a quad from a triple??? You are the Olympic Channel, please tell some professionals to make the vid. Besides, salchow and toe lop are totally not the same thing!

What a stunning skate. I saw a snap chat that just hinted a few notes of the music and I was like "I need to see that" so I rushed to find this video, beautiful skate!! Stunning man!

that 1st salchow was pretty lame, anybody can do that even without skates lol, i wonder what people found so interesting to name it after him :D

btw, a double salchow in martial arts is 720 degrees round kick, which is prety hard to master.
