    The Quad Club - Who Are Members?

    Of course there is Plush, Lambiel and Joubert. There is also Takahashi, van der Perren, Sandhu, and now Lysacek.

    Are there others that I left out? (criteria: must have landed a quad in a major competition - not at practice.)

    Can we expect consistent quad landings in Tokyo?

    How many and who will execute successful quad combos in Tokyo?

    Can a non member of the Club win in Tokyo?

    I know that Chinese skater chanjiang Li landed two diffrent quads in a program a few years ago.. not sure if he is still doing them. I think that Evan will try the quad in Tokyo if he feels that he has a chance of meadling/winning and johnny probably the same. Joubert will deffinetly try at least one. Takahaski will probably try one as well as Sandu.. athough he proably will either pop it or fall.

    Dobrin, Griazev and Klimkin should be added for the Russian guys.

    (For actually landing ratified quads, not "attempts" or practice quads)

    Wasn't he the first? 1988 World's? I don't think it was ratified, though.

    Quad trivia: Christopher Bowman allegedly did a 4-4-4 in practice once, but never (singly or in combination) in competition.

    Even though Kurt's had a turnout, it was still ratified as the first official quad. That always confused me. Apparently Sabovcik did a beauty that was never ratified but should have been.

    So that's what it was. I knew there was something, I just didn't remember that it had a turnout.

    Now that we've straightened out the Members of the Quad Club, can I get some responses about the rest of the topic?

    Who will attempt the Quad(s) in Tokyo?

    Who will attempt the Quad Combos in Tokyo?

    Does it have to do with the Order of Skate or will someone be brave enought to attempt all the quads he has?

    Brian Joubert

    I can't believe everyone forgot about Brian Joubert of France. I believe he will do the quad in combo. If he does maybe some of the other men will try one. If he is not rewarded I'm afraid other will not take the risk. If we look at the last few years everyone has played it safe. Let's face it, if it was that easy they all would be doing it. The marks must reflect the risk and reward the skaters. I believe the new judging system is better but that second mark is still a major factor. If you have technical errors you can not receive the huge program component marks. It is just like the old system, a program with errors cannot recieve 5.9 or 6.0 for presentation. It is just easier now to reward skater and more difficult for the general public to understand, the performace execution just isn't there when there are mistakes.

    I think Lysacek will do the quad from this day forward. And very likely he'll do a quad combo. He did a quad combo last year at the Worlds but two footed if I am not mistaken. Weir will do the quad in LP, unless he doesn't want to compete with Lysacek.

    Joubert will do at least two quads, one in combo. Takahashi will do a quad in the LP. Buttle and Oda may not do it. I don't know if Buttle has ever done a quad in a competition besides 2006 Olympics? Sandhu will have two footed quad. He usually does.
