This is an update of a previous Nathan Chen video.

Olympic figure skating is a brutal sport, and the most difficult jump, popularized by young phenom Nathan Chen, has become extremely controversial.

For many fans, the quadruple jump has come to represent the death of artistry and the rise of risky and sometimes dangerous athleticism within men's figure skating.

In the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympic games, we can almost certainly expect to see a lot of falls and possibly injuries due to the difficulty of these jumps.
