 Unbelievable: American figure skater made history in figure skating

American Ilya Malinin entered the history of figure skating by performing the most difficult of the jumps. The 17-year-old athlete became the first to complete a quadruple Axel in competition. "It was really good" — Malinin said. The quadruple axel is the most difficult of the jumps, which has never been performed by anyone in competitions before. It requires an additional half turn to complete. Malinin said that he started working on this technique only in March or April. He was inspired by the Japanese figure skater Yuzuru Hanyu.
