    Then it means that Mura is the most suscessful japannese guy in landing clean quad in term of quantity this season (combo count) since he has three clean quad while Oda land only two!

    It seems skaters who are really consistent on quad are Chan since GPF and Van der Perren.

    Not so fast. Has Hanyu done them outside of NHK and 4CC? He has the best quality among the Japanese but hasn't done many of them, either because of lack of opportunities or that he doesn't do it in every competition. It also appears that NHK yielded the bumper crop of successful quads from the Japanese who then lost momentum.

    Being inconsistent doesn't mean Oda and Kozuka can't pull of the most beautiful ones at Worlds. I'm less sure of Dai's chances.

    eta I must include Fernandez among the best quad jumpers. Gachinsky is not shabby either. Reynolds seems to have lost his sparks this season after making history in SC. Too bad, because he ready is good at them, for years now. Maybe the attention by the media pitting him against Chan at the Canadian Nationals got to him and the poor showing carried over to the 4CC.

    Oh yeah, I forgot that Yuzuru did another quad at regional competition, but that quad landing look a bit..... to me. In sheet Hanyu try quad in his LP at every competition but at cup of Russia and japanese national he triple them, the less three(NHK, Regional and 4CC) he land it.

    The point I make about Mura, I intend to talk about quantity not quality.

    Artur Gachinski did quad loop on the trainings before the WC: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roZs3IvlSGg
    Maybe he will try to do it at the WC.

    wow impressive, so that's why they are sending Artur (instead of champ Menshov)... or that Mishin lobbied for him.

    If jumps landed outside of a program in practice count, here's Menshov landing not only a quad loop, but a quad/quad combo (albeit a downgradable one): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fx3GnlX4TlY

    It's hard to tell if these practice quads are fully rotated or not. Menshov's second quads of the combo are all two-footed for sure.

    It all comes down to doing it in a program in a competion.

    Yeah, it's hard to imagine that the second of that quad/quad combo wouldn't get a << in competition. And doing it in practice and not even in a program is miles away from doing it in competition (it's still an impressive attempt and as long as he didn't injure himself good on Menshov for trying!). Even Plushenko, who may be one of the most talented jump rotators in skating history, has landed every kind of quad (except the axel? maybe that too?) in practice, but only ever landed the quad toe in competition!

    bibi24, the reason the Russian Federation is sending him to Worlds instead of Menshov isn't because of what he lands in practice, but solely based on his superior results this season in international competition (Menshov has finished lower than Gachinski at every international competition they were competing together in this season, and had some low finishes even in b events). Unlike the US federation, the Russian Federation never decide on their World team solely based on nationals results. Even the national champion is guaranteed nothing. Their athletes must prove themselves internationally, something Gachinski did better than Menshov.

    Random notes:

    Joubert and Kozuka finally did their rare beautiful quads this season. KVDP, Gachinsky, Brezina, and Bradly all did their best quads at WC too, though Bradley bombed a combo. 6 PB and in Kozuka's case, the only successful quad this season, 2nd best at WC. Did the special ice help?

    Despite doing the 3rd best quad of the WC, KVDP finished 18th. Fernandez had 2 decent quads and finished 10th.

    Verner's quad really cost him.

    Chan edged out Oda for best combo.
