Deborah King, associate professor of exercise and sport sciences
King provided her expertise on figure skating to the Toronto Star’s article on Patrick Chan’s developing quad jump. She says the Canadian skater uses the teeth on the blade of his left skate as the driving point, pushing off and upward to his left. “The toe pick digs in and turns, like a ballerina would pirouette in toeshoes,” she said. The takeoff is vital for proper positioning, “Once you have your angular momentum, you’re stuck with what you’ve got,” King says.
