    2 Quad Short Program

    Has there ever been a successful 2 quad short program performed? If so by who and when? Just wondering

    It's a big risk, especially as there aren't that many skaters with more than one type of (consistent) quad. For Joubert, it was his first 4S in years, so maybe that's a good sign; he has said he'll try it again, but I don't expect him to do that at any major events.

    My guess is that either Fernandez or Hanyu (or both) will try it soon, if not this season then in the GP next year.

    You asked for "successful". Not "good".
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    A two-quad Short Program is like a dog walking on his hind legs. It is not done well; but you are surprised to find it done at all.
