An interview with Timothy Goebel, 2001 US National Champion, and 2002 Olympic Bronze Medalist. Also known as the “Quad King,” he was the first person to land three quadruple jumps in one program (and one of the few to accomplish that to this day). We discuss his quads, the change from 6.0 to the International Judging System, and his role as a Technical Specialist. 1 hour, 13 minutes, 28 seconds.

To enter, send me either through email or my Facebook page the answer to the following question about Quads: who was the first person to land a ratified quadruple jump and what year? (If you’re a hard-core skating fan, this is really easy!)
