Figure skaters are known for their impressive maneuvers, such as axels, lutzes, and salchows. These jumps and twists are part of the job for figure skaters, even for young children. It defies basic rules of nature and physics to be able to execute these moves on ice while wearing boots with thin blades. The complexity of these maneuvers is extended even further with the addition of the term “quad,” which refers to a quadruple, or times four. The quadruple axel is considered a terrifying leap that most skaters will not attempt, yet 19-year-old American skater Ilia Malinin managed to execute it six times to win the World Figure Skating Championship in Montreal. Malinin described it as one of the best skates of his life, but also acknowledged that it could have gone terribly wrong.

The Washington Post described Malinin’s performance as jaw-dropping, mind-blowing, and gob-smacking, breaking scoring records for the program. Malinin’s performance was set to the haunting soundtrack of “Succession,” creating a historic moment in figure skating. This feat of athleticism and skill left fans watching in awe as Malinin made history with his performance.
