    I just watched this video and it seemed like Ayumi attempted a 4S at 2:23. :wideeyes: Cool! :inavoid:

    Yes, she calls it a quad ("yonkai" = four times) in the audio.

    In this video, she is saying that she is attempting the quad jump little by little, but it seems that there is not the scene which she attempts the quad really.

    Translated from Japanese.
    02:08
    Aiming at the junior Worlds, she is beginning to tackle the jump of high difficulty level because she thinks that she needs to master the higher skill.
    02:20
    Ayumi Goto: “I am attempting to put the triple jump behind Flip or Lutz which are difficulty level jump and then I am attempting the quad jump little by little”.

    Thank you for the translation, Akira Andrea! :cheer2: It would be great if Ayumi attempted a quad in competition. :)
