    I can imagine how eager Trusova and her team must be for her to rock the Senior world!
    And for the naysayers and pessimists, we’ve never had a little girl landing two quads in a competition or being so consistent on everything while being so fearless on taking up new jumps. As she said, if you want it you can do it. So I believe no puberty will stop Trusova from being Quad Queen!
    Plus, the boys do it, why can’t the girls? I believe the same process happened when women started doing triple-triples. Someone has to be the first, why wouldn’t be her?

    I would also really love it if someone at the senior level could consistently land quads, and even multiple quads! Getting excited now like a long time ago when Midori Ito and her 3A pushed the limits of the ladies!

    Perhaps. The only difference is that GS paid for the article directly from the author while FS Gossip took the entire interview in Russian from another site and translated it without permission.

    The article clearly states:

    "She became the first female skater to land a quadruple toe and the first to land two quads in one program – 15 years and three months after Miki Ando of Japan became the first, and until now, only woman to perform a quad in competition."

    It is impressive what Trusova does, she was the first to land two quads... but she was not the first. C'mon.


    Still wonder, why women stopped trying quads after Miki Ando? I know Surya Bonaly tried but never succeeded in competition... do not remember other attempts. Did someone else try?
    No one said Sasha was the first. Read the article.

    I don't think it's necessarily true. Miki Ando didn't have a short career - she competed as a senior for many years after training quads as a junior. Your body changes, and whether or not you will have sustained quads is of question, but there are safe ways to push your body further, and Sasha seems determined to do these quads. This is coming from someone who was very skeptical about her meteroic rise to these jumps earlier this season.

    There is something to be said about the depth of the Russian ladies field shoving other girls out, but that's another conversation, I think. There are lots of Russian skaters who still have dedicated die-hard fans, even if they are no longer the fed's chosen one or so much in the spotlight. Sometimes someones skating can really touch an audience, and in turn make them unforgettable, and I don't think that's dependent on who the fed is pushing forward. I think it's safe to say that wherever Alexandra's career goes, she will be remembered for being one of the pioneers with these jumps.

    They responded to you about your claim that Sasha will have a short career. “ All these girls will have short careers” you said. The response to you was that Miki had a career that spanned many years after training quads as a junior.

    No senior lady has landed a quad in competition .... yet. Miki tried but they were all deemed UR at the senior level but she did have one ratified as a junior.
