Agree, it seems quite an ask. Several men (with 3A's) had quads in practice before one was officially landed right?There are very few top men who did quads before having a 3A (Barna, Lambiel?), so why should we expect that from the ladies?

Yuna will come out of retirement in 2018 armed with quad lutz. Mao will challenge her with quad flip and 2 triple axels. :yes: The men will feel duly ashamed for still being stuck on quad salchow.Wouldn't "fixing the edge" be more of a related issue if people were talking about doing quad flips or lutzes?
You think the ladies will try the 4Flip or 4Lutz before the 4T or 4S??
You'd get more points for doing a quad than for simply fixing an edge in a triple which usually is only -1pt deduction or less after factoring anyway. :think:
I'm not hoping to see a quad from my favorites anytime soon.
And in turn, were Miki's (or Surya's) quads any more UR than the ratified quads from the male pioneers? (Browning, Urmanov, ect.) But the official record is, Miki Ando is the first woman to land a quad. Just like Kurt Browning is the first man to do so. If we get into these things, we'll have to find who was "truly" the first guy to land a quad as well.
