    The reason:

    Fake quads: severe pre-rotation
    Bad quality crossovers: excessive double-footed skating

    Some fans took them seriously and got upset that judges do not take them into account. I personally don't really pay attention to those features too much.

    I don't think that Rippon has a quad, fake or real.

    Doesn't Rippon have a quad Toe? Only the injury from last season is making him unable to jump it now, so he switched to attempting the 4Lz, which yes, is not there.

    Actually he has a 4T and a 4Lz and I've seen them over time in practices, on warm-up, and so on. He stopped doing the toe after his foot injury.

    He can clarify, but I think Mathman is referring to Rippon opting not to compete a quad at these Olympics.

    We all know that Rippon has done clean 4T in the past and attempts a 4Z.

    I doubt it. I mean, it would be silly to bash Shoma in a Hanyu thread. They're compatriots after all!

    Since some were implying Brian was lying, yes, Hanyu can still jump.

    I implied that it was possible until we saw otherwise. Very happy to see that that's not the case.

    So crazy to think how we were so uncertain about Yuzuru's condition but now he's back jumping quads. I'm so happy! He said he only got his quads back two weeks ago. Amazing boy...

    Oi where are fans who were worried about Hanyu's condition and maybe secretly hope he would be back very "well"?

    Hah, oh I know it -- it's a cool place... quite welcoming, interesting wildlife ... although I think I prefer somewhere a little more down-to-Earth.

    This is great to see! Nice to know that the injury is a thing of the past and isn't hampering from him from doing quads (at least the 4S and 4T) anymore.
