Actually Fernandez BV advantage may not be as great as one would think, unless at least one of his jumping passes his after the halfway mark...

Obviously if Javier puts one of his jumping passes after the Half way mark then he would have more room for breath, but still not enough to be sure of his win...

I didn't really have the internet as a source back in that era since I was too young but I'm pretty sure back then we didn't have 9 out of the top 10 men (in the FS) at Olympics attempting quads only for 7 of them to mess up on one or more in some way, there were men who were even lower in the rankings attempting quads too, it's just really extreme to me now and all this quad talk just sounds like a really good way to end your career early (which is exactly what I don't want)

Thank you for compiling the list, Doris! Very helpful for reference. Is it possible to put a sticky on this thread, as it had been in the past?
