Winter Olympics 2018: Vincent Zhou makes Olympic history with first quadruple Lutz

Vincent Zhou Makes History Becoming First-Ever Skater to Land a Quadruple Lutz at the Olympics

American figure skaters Adam Rippon, Vincent Zhou and Nathan Chen all qualified Friday for the men's free skate.

The top performer in the short program was Yuzuru Hanyu of Japan, who posted the second-highest Olympic short program score ever at 111.68. But Zhou will forever hold the distinction of breaking that hallowed barrier in the Olympics, performing the feat in the Men's Single Skating Short Program at Gangneung Ice Arena.

A 17-year-old American figure skater has pulled off a move that nobody else has landed cleanly in the 94-year history of the Winter Olympics.

The skater launched off the back outside edge of his left blade and rotated four times before landing on the opposite foot with a triple toe loop to follow. The 17-year-old Palo Alto native nailed the tricky jump in Thursday's short program. "It helps me be more mature and feel older than I actually am". "I don't spend my time vaping with friends".

Zhou is the youngest member of Team USA and a full 22 years junior to the games' eldest competitor, 39-year-old hockey player Brian Gionta. I don't go to Starbucks and order the newest frappuccino.
